This popular benchmark WOD is dedicated to and named after Annie Sakamoto. After starting CrossFit in 2004, she became a trainer at the first CrossFit gym, the original CrossFit Santa Cruz in California. She has been a fan favorite ever since, famous for her 2005 appearance in a video of a workout that would later be known as "Nasty Girls." In 2009, she helped team CrossFit West Santa Cruz to a 33rd-place finish at the Games before making her individual Games debut in 2011 with ninth-place finish, also winning the Spirit of the Games Award that year. In 2012, she took 23rd. She made her first masters Games appearance in 2016 with a second-place finish in the Masters Women 40-44 Division.
"Annie," one of CrossFit's classic "Girls" WODs, was first posted on the CrossFit Main Site as the workout of the day for Wednesday, September 7, 2005 (050907).
