About the wod
Background: From Fire Chief Ryan W. Lamb: “It is with deepest sympathy and regret that I announce the passing of Cape Coral Fire Engineer/Driver Michael Camelo Jr. Michael passed away today [May 31, 2018] at 2:52pm after suffering a brain aneurysm yesterday morning. He was surrounded by his friends and family and with members of the Cape Coral Fire Department standing vigil. We are greatly saddened by his untimely death. This is not only a great loss to the Cape Coral Fire Department and his family, but to the entire Southwest Florida community. We all lost a Brother today.”
Engineer Camelo leaves behind two young children. Multiple gyms in the area, including CrossFit Salvation @crossfitsalvation and CrossFit Cape Coral, raised funds for Michael’s family shortly after his passing.
We first saw this workout posted on Instagram by numerous CrossFit boxes in the Southwest Florida. One of the posters, Derek Anderson of CrossFit Estero @crossfitestero (Fort Myers, Fl, USA), told us the workout was designed by Timothy Lester of the Cape Coral Fire Department.
The time and rep scheme represent the year 2006, when Michael became a firefighter, and 5/31/2018, when he passed away.
