Background: “Bee Sting” was designed by CrossFit Games athlete Jacob Heppner @jheppner66 who announced it on his Instagram on September 12, 2019 to kick off a creative cross-platform social media promotion for “Midwest Made” @midwest_made_, his fitness programming brand.

In the announcement, Heppner called “Bee Sting” a “community workout” and asked his followers to film themselves doing the WOD and post them to YouTube. He would then have his editor edit the videos together along with his commentary.

5 days later Jacob posted the edited video which featured 4 different athletes’ demo videos (including his own), and Heppner’s frame-in-frame commentary.

The featured athletes’ scores were:
– Heppner: 7:44
– Vaggelis: 2 rds + 49 reps
– Shaun Spencer: 2 rds + 42 reps
– Emily Smith: 2 rds + 7 reps
