Miranda Oldroyd muses on the new definition of beauty.CrossFit athlete and Headquarters trainer Miranda Oldroyd knows first hand what it’s like to compete. Miranda took 22nd place in the 2008 CrossFit Games. Injury prevented her from competing in 2009, and this year she placed 2nd place at the Utah Sectional and 14th at the Northwest Regional. This year she will be presenting the CrossFit Games Finals to our online viewers via live webcast from the Home Depot Center. Miranda sent the following thoughts.
To all of the amazing ladies who are getting ready to compete in the upcoming CrossFit Games-Many of whom I have met, a few of whom are my closest friends and coworkers, and all of whom I and other female CrossFitters around the world look up to.
Some of you are mothers. Some of you are wives. And maybe a few have no interest in either title. Some of you are coaches, firefighters, soldiers and Marines. But even more of you are teachers and nurses. You are women who can be found working in an office or going to school.
All of you are STRONG.
All of you are BEAUTIFUL.
All of you are… a little CRAZY.
All of you are absolutely INCREDIBLE.
All of you are INSPIRATIONAL.
All of you deserve to be extremely proud of yourselves. Whether you come out last place on July 18th or become the 2010 CrossFit Games Champion, you have already secured your spot amongst some of the most amazing athletes…some of the most amazing people, WOMEN, that I have ever had the privilege of meeting and knowing.
Enjoy every moment and don’t leave a single thing out in that arena. We will all be cheering and rooting for you all!
WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO!!
