If you don’t know already, I’m the one behind the phone when it comes to running the social media for Double Edge which means I spend a lot of time scrolling… Especially on Instagram.
With the Welded Open just around the corner I wanted to share some of the Games athletes that I follow who I find inspiring, amazing and actually pretty interesting/entertaining.
I had to limit myself to 10 (5 male, 5 female) otherwise the list would be a little overwhelming. So here we go:
- Tia-Clair Toomey (@tiaclair1)
- Mat Fraser (@mathewfras)
- Katrin Davidsdottir (@katrintanja)
- Rich Froning (@richfroning)
- Kara Webb (@karawebb1)
- Josh Bridges (@bridgesj3)
- Brooke Ence (@brookeence)
- Ben Smith (@bsmit13)
- Brooke Wells (@brookewellss)
- Scott Panchik (@scottpanchik)
Following these athletes and seeing just a small glimpse into their lives is quite eye opening. They share what it takes to get to the elite level in our sport and sometimes they share the sacrifices they have to make in order to train at that level. Let me tell you, it takes a lot!
