Tributes continue to flow for former CrossFit Games athlete Becky Conzelman, who passed away aged 47 over the weekend.
Conzelman’s family announced her passing away on her Facebook Fan Page, just a week after she suffered a brain aneurysm.
“It is with very heavy hearts we share that our beloved Becky passed away this morning, April 6th, and was welcomed by her Abba Father.”
Conzelman competed at the CrossFit Games five times in total. After picking up the sport in 2009, the former professional cyclist wasted no time making a name for herself. After claiming her first ever Regional title in 2011, Conzelman went on to finish 14th at the CrossFit Games a year later.
She is also the co-founder of the CrossFit affiliate Faith RXD, a box which combines the Christian faith with fitness.
