Background: This British Hero WOD is dedicated to Steve Dixon (Dicko) from Sunderland who was killed on November 24, 2007, in the Tallil area of southern Iraq.

At the time of his death, Dixon was providing close protection to US Army Engineers when a large IED detonated beneath his vehicle.

Despite having recently left the British Army where he served in The Royal Green Jackets for over 10 years, Dixon had returned to Iraq as a contractor to support reconstruction efforts.

He is survived by his wife Sarah, children Caitlin and Niall, and extended family.

We first found this as the workout of the day for November 9, 2014 as part of the Broadsword Barbell WODvember catalog.
