The Barbell Spin published an article stating Katrin Davidsdottir and Streat Hoerner are dating. This has not been independently verified, but what is known is that Davidsdottir published an Instagram post of the two together in Switzerland with the caption, “I don’t know about you, but I think he’s kinda cute.”
Davidsdottir has been adamant in the past about putting aside any romantic relationships while she focuses on competition. We prefer not to make any assumptions, but wanted to present you with what is known.
Push yourself, but be sure to protect your shoulders with a good warm up and a safe weight.
And that’s it for news about CrossFit for Wednesday, August 14th.
