About the wod
The WOD was first shown in the "Exercises & Demo" section on crossfit.com but there were no specifics regarding reps/rounds. About a year later a CrossFit forum member, Eugene R. Allen, specified the reps as 21-15-9 and said, "you will find this one to be taxing to say the very least."
The WOD is named after Annie Sakamoto who, after starting CrossFit in 2004, became a trainer at the first CrossFit gym, the original CrossFit Santa Cruz in California. She has been a fan favorite ever since, famous for her 2005 appearance in a video of a workout that would later be known as "Nasty Girls." In 2009, she helped team CrossFit West Santa Cruz to a 33rd-place finish at the Games before making her individual Games debut in 2011 with ninth-place finish, also winning the Spirit of the Games Award that year. In 2012, she took 23rd. She made her first masters Games appearance in 2016 with a second-place finish in the Masters Women 40-44 Division.
