About the wod
Background: This Memorial WOD is dedicated to the Las Vegas Shooting which happened on October 1, 2017. On the night of October 1, 2017, a gunman opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas strip in Nevada. Perpetrator Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada, fired more than 1,100 rounds from his suite on the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay hotel, killing 58 people and leaving 851 injured, over 400 of them by gunfire and hundreds more in the ensuing panic. The shooting occurred between 10:05 and 10:15 p.m. PDT; about an hour later Paddock was found dead in his room from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His motive remains unknown.
The incident is the deadliest mass shooting committed by an individual in the United States. It reignited debate about gun laws in the U.S. and focused attention on bump stocks, which Paddock used to help him fire shots in rapid succession and with results compared to automatic weapon fire.
We first found this workout posted on the Instagram profile of Joe Tepe, @jtepelv, of The Strip CrossFit (Las Vegas, Nevada, USA) as the memorial WOD for October 1, 2018.
