About the wod
On Saturday, January 15, 2011, at the Rogue Fitness “Barbell Club” in Columbus, Ohio, 2010 CrossFit Games Champion Graham Holmberg and Dave Ulmer took on a new benchmark workout called “Top Gun.” Graham created it base on a 2009 CrossFit Games Sectional workout, “Air Force,” which is the same except for the weight of the barbell.
