Dani Speegle – iconic CrossFit athlete, the past winner of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Titan Games on NBC, and a major sports personality with more than 2.3 Million social media followers – is set to headline the first-ever SFA Expo in Saudi Arabia. As a reflection of positive societal change taking place in the country, Speegle will lead a panel entitled: “Women’s Empowerment – How to Overcome Obstacles and Reach Your Goals” on Saturday, May 20, 2023.

The conference is presented by the Saudi Sports for All Federation (SFA) – part of the Ministry of Sports – whose mission is to invigorate the country with wellness and a passion for movement. The event supports the nation’s Vision 2030 initiative: a unique transformative economic and social reform blueprint that is opening up Saudi Arabia to the world. As the first event of its kind in the country, SFA Expo is also presenting the relatively untapped sports market to brands and properties abroad.

“The SFA Expo is the first event of its kind in the country, and when I was invited to speak on a women’s empowerment panel alongside other strong ladies from the sports world, I was excited at the opportunity to play a small part in creating more positive change in the lives of women and society on the other side of the globe. I’m honored to be helping lead this very important conversation: inspiring girls to be strong and strive to reach their goals in whatever they want to do in life.” – Dani Speegle

With CrossFit as her platform, Speegle has been on a mission to make a positive impact beyond the sport – having also recently launched her “Girls Who Eat” campaign. Her call to change the narrative on women, including outdated beauty standards and old notions of what they’re capable of in athletics and in life, has garnered international support.

The Southern California resident will also lead a CrossFit demonstration/class earlier in the day – building upon the immense interest that’s been growing around the sport, for both men and women, the past couple of years in Saudi Arabia.
