Background: This hero workout is dedicated to Officer Pierluigi Rotta and Officer Matteo Demenego who were killed in a shootout in the Trieste Police Headquarters on October 4, 2019.

The officers were shot after they arrested two suspected robbers and brought them into headquarters for questioning. It is believed that one of the robbers asked to use the bathroom before stealing a gun from an officer and shooting him.

A shootout ensued, in which the two deceased officers – along with three further police and one of the robbers – was injured. The robbers managed to flee the scene, although they were both later apprehended by police.

We first found this workout posted by CrossFit Strada Battaglia @crossfit_strada_battaglia (Padova, Italy).

The time and cash-out are the age of the two officers. The reps are the date of death.
