In this edition of Inside the Leaderboard, Tommy Marquez talks with owner and founder of Training Think Tank, Max El-Hag, about coaching Sara Sigmundsdóttir and how they're approaching the upcoming Games season.
Sigmundsdottir is a three-time CrossFit Open winner (2017, 2019, 2020), and a six-time CrossFit Games competitor (2015-2020). In 2015 and 2016, Sigmundsdottir finished the Games in third place.
Looking to earn a spot on the podium again this year, Sigmundsdottir recently started working with El-Hag to prepare for the 2021 Games.
El-Hag believes Sigmundsdottir is capable of winning the Games and recognizes the pressure that comes with achieving that goal. He says, “We have that big picture mountain that we want to climb but we keep our feet on the process of just trying to make sure we’re better than we were last year.”
