Julie Foucher Just Became Everyone’s Favorite CrossFit Athlete

May 31, 2015

Julie Foucher got third at the 2014 CrossFit Games, won her region in the 2015 Open, and was sitting in first place at the 2015 Central Regional yesterday when she reportedly partially tore her achilles tendon while doing box jump overs during the chipper WOD.

A few hours later she hobbled onto the floor wearing a boot, beat a handful of people on the 250ft handstand walk, then muscle snatched 75 and 85lbs to end her competition day…and possibly her competition career.

The energy inside the Minneapolis Convention Center was incredible, and Julie made the world fall in love with her all over again. Here’s a quick video HQ put together showing her determination and heart while kicked some booted ass in the handstand walk.


After enduring an injury in Event 3 at the Central Regional, Julie Foucher donned a hard walking boot and went ahead with Event 4”a 250-foot handstand walk. She placed 11th in the event.

Fast forward to the 5:03:13 on the video below to see just after Julie got hurt… For some reason the video pauses before she got hurt. (I don’t think this is by coincidence.) You can also skip to 8:04:00 to see the handstand walk and snatch events in full.

In an empty gym I can make all the jumpers I want, but as soon as I have to direct my attention to a defender guarding me all of the technique I practiced tends to go out the window.
