About the wod
Background: Dedicated to U.S. Navy Special Warfare Operator Petty Officer 1st Class (SEAL/Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist) Jon “JT” Thomas TuMileson, 35, of Rockford, IA, assigned to an East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare unit, who died on August 6, 2011, in Wardak province, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when his helicopter crashed.
He is survived by his parents George and Kathy TuMileson, Joy and Scott McMeekan, sisters Kristie and Joy, and his dog Hawkeye.
The “Tumilson” Hero WOD was first posted on the CrossFit Main Site as the workout of the day for Wednesday, July 4, 2012 (120704).
The name of this workout, which has since been adopted by gyms and athletes around the world, is usually spelled slightly differently than JT’s last name, TuMileson – because that’s how it was first posted by CrossFit.
