Bjork Odinsdottir

Meet Bjork Odinsdottir

Born in Iceland, Bjork has trained in gymnastics since the age of 8, started coaching gymnastics at age 12 and completed for the Icelandic national team from age 17 to 22. She has competed at elite levels in both artistic gymnastics and team gymnastics, which earned her an EC gold with the Icelandic team in 2010. After college, she developed a passion for CrossFit, leveraging her superior gymnastics skills to excel in workouts.

She has competed in the CrossFit games both as an individual and on the CrossFit Nordic team, as well as in the NPGL on the Phoenix Rise.

Also, known as the cast member, Bjørk on the Swedish Gladiators (yes…American Gladiators has an international contingent!), her strength, speed and agility is no match for the contenders on the show, who find themselves easily dispatched by her hand.

Bjork used to conduct gymnastic training sessions for CrossFit HQ, but now is a full-time CrossFit athlete and does some seminar work around Europe for Eleiko.
