About the wod
Background: This workout is dedicated to Commandos Cédric De Pierrepont and Alain Bertoncello who were killed during a rescue operation that freed four hostages in Burkina Faso on May 10, 2019.
The French Navy (a.k.a.: Commando Hubert) designed this workout to pay homage to their brothers who paid the ultimate sacrifice. The name came from the initials of the surnames of the two Navy, De Pierrepont and Bertoncello. This WOD is practiced in pairs, like the combat swimmers that were the two commandos.
