Although her aim was always making the CrossFit Games as a Master, Kelly surprised herself by also qualifying for the all age Europe regionals. She took to the floor at the Berlin Velodrome alongside some of the fittest women on earth and absolutely smashed it finishing in the top 20.
When Kelly headed to Swedish strength company Eleiko’s HQ in 2018, she lifted a world record of 104kg in the clean & jerk* which goes some way towards conveying her incredible power.
Kelly is strong, smiley and seriously dedicated and that’s why we’ve been superfans for a long time and love having her as part of Team Big Croc. She kindly models for us from time to time, and we turn up to cheer her on whenever we can. Big Croc designed a collaboration TEAM FRIEL t shirt to help raise funds for Kelly's trips to the Berlin regionals and the CrossFit games in Madison.
Often spotted double croc-ing it in leggings and her favourite black & grey weightlifter baseball tee, when she’s not in the gym, Kelly is to be found hanging out with her similarly sporty hubby. Check out Kelly’s insta feed here.
