Athlete of the Day: Betty Matthews

It’s time to celebrate our Athlete of The Day!

Betty Matthews, nominated by sports mama, Vanessa Matthews, is our Athlete of the Day!

Tell us about Betty’s achievement: 

Betty competed at her first ever adult CrossFit competition and, with her adult team mate, secured 14th place out of 25 teams. She started CrossFit last summer and had set herself huge goals to go on and compete on a national and international level in the sport. Last November she and a team mate topped the podium with a 1st place at a teen CrossFit competition (also her first ever)..


Tell us about a character trait Betty has that you admire:

Her determination and willingness to push through no matter how anxious and nervous she is.

Tell us one thing you want your athlete to know:

How courageous and inspiring she is! She already knows how proud we are of her win or lose, but it’s good for her to know the broader impact that her choices, commitment, and focus have on everyone. She’s an empowered young woman who aspires to be strong and healthy and show up to give her best no matter how overwhelming the circumstances. That’s a huge achievement for any young person.

Congratulations, Betty!
