In an August 11, 2005 forum post addressed to "Dave" (presumably Dave Castro, future director of the CrossFit Games) CrossFit Forum member named Ryan Atkins suggested that this workout, "Betty," and four others ("Lola," "Charlotte," "Heather," and "Pukie Brewster") be added to the official list of girls WODs.

The workouts were adopted by plenty of gyms and athletes but despite his plea, neither "Betty" nor any of the other four are technically one of the classic CrossFit "Girls" workouts.
