About the wod
Background: This workout is dedicated to Ahmaud Arbery who was killed on February 23, 2020, while unarmed and jogging along a road in Satilla Shores, Georgia.
The fact that the Arbery’s killer(s), a white father and son, were not arrested until 74 days later, after a video of the incident went viral, sparked unrest about racial profiling and unfair treatment of African-Americans in America.
This workout was designed by Coach Mike Bernitt of Monroe County CrossFit @monroe_county_crossfit (Rochester, NY, USA) as a tribute to the young man.
The rep scheme signifies the date when Arbery was killed.
