Iceland is not super populated, there are currently about 323,002 residents living there. That is 8.5% of LA's population, or very close to the population of Anaheim. There are over 60 thousand more people living in Oakland than Iceland. At this years Crossfit Games there were 2 females and one male from Iceland on the podium, do the math, that's half of the individual competitors getting a medal from Iceland! Is that not beyond incredible? Especially considering the global stretch of Crossfit now with over 10 thousand affiliates.
