About the wod
Background: This hero workout is dedicated to police Captain Vinny Liberto, Mandeville PD, LA, who was shot and killed at the intersection of Causeway Boulevard and La. 22 while engaged in a vehicle pursuit on September 20, 2019. He was 58 years old.
At the time of his death, Capt. Liberto and another officer were pursuing a vehicle when it crashed. An occupant immediately exited the vehicle and opened fire, killing Capt. Liberto and wounding the other officer.
Capt. Liberto, also a decorated US Marine, is remembered as a kind, compassionate man who was dedicated to his family, friends, profession, and all whom he touched. He is survived by his wife, Tra and seven children, Vincent, Joey, Michael, Bailee, Tyler, Dominic, and Victoria.
In November 2019, Messina Street in Mandeville was renamed to Captain Vincent Liberto Jr. Drive in his honor.
The workout was designed by Head CrossFit Coach and CrossFit Level 2 Trainer Shelly Marano of Dauntless Athletic @dauntlessathletic (Covington, LA, USA).
In a conversation with Dauntless Athletic, they told WODwell that one of their member’s husband worked with Capt. Liberto and requested a workout in his honor.
The rep scheme signifies:
– 1,961 meter for the year he was born
– 7 rounds and 7 Pull-Ups for his 7 children
– 5 box Jumps and 8 Thrusters for his age when he passed away
– 2,019 meter for the year of his death.
