Santa is a 27 years old loving mom of 3 year old twins, fitness coach and inspirational athlete who earned a place to compete in CrossFit World Championships to represent her country Latvia in a competition known as CrossFit Games. Her crossfit training journey started 6 years ago when she opened a crossfit box in Riga with her husband. Some time after opening the gym, Santa decided to put off serious training for couple of years to start a family. Pregnancy was long waited with a big happy surprise and a big challenge a head –Twin baby Girl and baby Boy! This journey limited Santa's training for longer than expected. So this period was really challenging and trainings after pregnancy where almost like starting everything over and from the beginning.
After some time when the kids got a bit older she saw a good opportunity to start training again as a competative athlete in 2019 to take part in Baltics biggest Functional Fitness competition ’’Battle of Riga’’. At the start CrossFit Games didnt seem as a reality because of the old CrossFit system. So Battle of Riga was the first individual competition she was training and putting all her heart and time in. Because of Santas performance anxiety Battle of Riga’19 in her mind was the first and the last one that she would take place in. It was ment to be one time experience. In Battle of Riga she found inspiration and trust in herself that spiked a fire in her and she decided to also take part in upcoming CrossFit Games qualification workouts known as the CrossFit Open. She dedicated all summer to get ready for those five weeks of challenges. Recent changes in the system of qualifying to CrossFit Games finaly gave the opportunity to make her dream come true. So to get to the CrossFit games she needed one goal - to become CrossFit Open 2020 Latvian Champion and earn the title - „The Fittest in Latvia“. Five weeks of tough competition, not giving up and many workouts to be battled. Through hard work, and many ours in the gym, this goal has finally been achieved. In 2019, Santa became „The Fittest in Latvia“ and got the opportunity to represent Latvia in United states of America at The CrossFit Games 2020.
We have made this campaign where all the people who would like to make a special suprise for Santa, can come together to support her journey in representing our country Latvia in the United States of America. Supporting her dream and compete in the "CrossFit Games 2020"
This fundraising would help her in the journey to cover the costs for competition expenses like entry fee, plane tickets, accommodation, local transport and healt insurance. CrossFit Games will take place from 29. of July until 3. of August in Madison, Winsconsin, United States of America.
