Julie Foucher: Fight to Finish


by Tannya Joaquin May 31, 2015

2014 CrossFit Games' 3rd fittest Woman Julie Foucher didn't go down without a fight. Despite a heart-breaking achilles injury doing box jumps during event 3 of the 2015 Central Regionals, Foucher showed her heart by completing all 7 events.

The 4-time Games competitor finished in 8th place so she will not advance to the Games, but Foucher's toughness and determination are marks of a true winner. In her 4 Games appearances, the medical student has never finished outside of the top 5. Although she won't get a shot at the 2015 title, Foucher is proven.

Foucher even put a positive spin on her bad break. Here's what she posted on her instagram account, @juliefoucher. "This weekend definitely didn't go as planned, but in many ways it was the perfect ending to my @crossfitgames competition career. I experienced an entirely new level of the @crossfit community, and I had more fun on the competition floor than ever before."
