Laura Horvath Brings FITAID to the Podium at the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games
Santa Cruz, Calif., August 4th, 2021 --
After four days of competition and 15 events, Team FITAID athlete Laura Horvath earned the silver medal at the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games.
Since 2016, Horvath has consistently been ranked number one in her home country of Hungary. The 24-year-old had seven top five finishes and one event win, forging her path to the podium once again. As a rookie, Horvath also placed 2nd at the 2018 CrossFit Games.
Horvath made her CrossFit debut in 2016 at the age of 19 at the Meridian Regional and has been a European fan favorite ever since. She joined the Team FITAID European athlete roster earlier this year along with Gabriela Migala (Poland) who placed 6th in the Women’s Individual competition.
“After placing 14th at the 2019 CrossFit Games, a lot of people cast doubt on Laura’s ability to be a contender for the podium. We’re so proud of Laura for striving for greatness, prioritizing her recovery in order to make such astounding progress, and coming back with a vengeance to prove that she is here to stay,” said Aaron Hinde, President and Co-Founder of LIFEAID
The Sport of Fitness is all about the unknown and the unknowable and the global pandemic certainly added a layer of adversity for athletes during that time. CrossFit Games hopefuls were forced to get creative with their training as gyms were shuttered and the path to the Games was restructured.

“The past 18+ months we’ve seen a lot of uncertainty, especially in the gym world. This obviously affected our athletes deeply and there is nothing more exciting than seeing Laura and the other 18 Team FITAID athletes put in work at the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games! It’s like their energy was pent up all of 2020 and they finally got to show us what they’re made of,” said Hinde.
Despite everything, fans showed up to Madison, WI, filling out the stands to cheer on their favorite athletes. The energy in the Coliseum during the final events was electric as The Fittest on Earth solidified their spots at the podium.
