Background: This memorial workout is dedicated to Michael Cannon who passed away on March 1, 2020, after sustaining extensive injuries from a car accident on February 29, 2020.

This workout was designed by CrossFit Luminary @cfluminary (Grand Rapids, MI, USA), where Mike was a member.

In a conversation with WODwell, one of Mike’s best friends, Jeff Howard told us that this workout was based on a recent workout that Mike had topped the leaderboard on (a 12 mins workout, he scored 12 rounds of 10 burpees and 25 double-unders – hence the programming of the workout).

According to the CrossFit Luminary post for this workout: “Michael joined the CrossFit Luminary Family in January of 2020 serving the community as an intern coach and a fellow athlete. Michael celebrated coaching his first solo CrossFit class on February 28, 2020. Michael was an Eagle Scout and his mentality to serve will live on through his choice to be an organ donor. Michael was a professional frisbee player for Detroit Mechanix. Two of his teammates died with him in the crash.”

Team of 3 represents the 3 that died in this tragedy.

The buy-in and cash-out of an 800-meter run is to reflect all the running in ultimate frisbee, a passion of his. The gym also set up a GoFundme for his family and his girlfriend, Sammy.
