Kara Saunders Kills 19.2 While 6+ Months Pregnant


Kara Saunders, the fourth-fittest woman on earth was included in an announcement on Thursday that she would be joining the CrossFit Open 19.2 announcement in Australia at CrossFit FX.

Saunders was joined by fellow Aussies James Newbury, Maddie Sturt, Justine Beath, and Ben Garard. She completed all weights RX’d, but swapped toes-to-bar for a dumbbell squat and removed the squat from the heavy squat cleans. She noted doing this to avoid long-term issues with abdominal and pelvic floor after carrying the pregnancy to term and returning to competition.

All athletes completed the workout within the time cap with the exception of Ben Garard, the brother of embattled and suspended athlete Ricky Garard. Ricky tested positive for performance enhancing drugs after reaching the podium in the 2017 CrossFit Games.
