The 2016 Maddie Sturt
18 year old powerhouse Maddie Sturt recently finishing studying her HSC and has a strong athletic background in sprinting and athletics. Sturt discovered CrossFit just shy of her 14th birthday and beginning her CrossFit journey with her Mum, Lisa and supported by her Coach Courtney Fitzharris, Maddie has since qualified as an individual for the 2014 Australian CrossFit Regionals. Armed with some impressive numbers on the PR board, Maddie took to the Win Stadium as the youngest Australian Regional Competitor in 2014. We are so proud to have such a inspiring young athlete join the 21.15.NINE Family.
