About the wod
Background: This tribute workout is dedicated to the victims and survivors of the 9/11 attack at World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
9/11 was a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States. The attacks resulted in 2,977 fatalities, over 25,000 injuries, and substantial long-term health consequences, in addition to at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage.
The 2001 meter row represents the year of the attacks. The 9 and 11 reps represent the date. The 4 rounds signify the 4 planes that crashed. Finally, the 2,977 meter Row represents the lives lost during the incident.
We first found this workout posted by Evolution Athletics Team @evolutionathleticsnc (West End, NC, USA). From our conversation, they said, “I didn’t create it. I did it while deployed one time where it was just written on a whiteboard. No clue who made it… Now I do it every 9/11.”
If you know who designed the workout, please tell us.
