About the wod
Background: This popular benchmark WOD is one of CrossFit’s classic “Girls” WODs, and was first posted on the CrossFit Main Site as the workout of the day for Sunday, February 24, 2008 (080224).
“Eva” is named after Eva Twardokens (aka: Eva T.), who was one of CrossFit Founder Greg Glassman’s original clients after the two reportedly met in a spin class. According to an article in BreakingMuscle, Eva, a recently retired two-time Olympian, was one of the absolute original CrossFit athletes, training with Glassman in the corner of a Jiu-Jitsu gym before Glassman even owned a gym of his own.
Eva is also a frequent star of old CrossFit workout videos, including the now-infamous “Nasty Girls” video. Appropriately, “Nasty Girls” was the spark for many other athletes’ CrossFit journey.
