From Morning Chalk Up:

One of CrossFit Inc.’s longest-tenured employees, Director of Training Nicole Carroll has decided to resign from her position at CrossFit Inc. after 16 years. In an anonymous tip, the Morning Chalk Up has learned that Carroll, who is widely considered one of the founding pillars of the CrossFit community, resigned via an email sent to her staff late Sunday night.

In the email, Carroll states: “Unfortunately, a line has been drawn to where each of us will be held accountable for words that do not represent who we have been. Our loyalties will come into conflict with our values; individually and as a community. We will be subjected to defend ourselves against all manner of attacks. The pain and lived reality of the black community has been mocked, and the sincere hurt, confusion, anxiety & hopelessness that I know many of you feel over current events has been disregarded.
