In CrossFit fashion, we dedicated a hero WOD on occasion of Israel’s Memorial Day, to the 11 Olympic Athletes murdered at the Munich Olympics, over 40 years ago.
All evening classes tomorrow are cancelled, except for one central 17:30 WOD to compete this Hero WOD together:
אימון הי”א includes aspects from each of the sports the athletes were set to compete in: Track, Wrestling, Fencing and Shooting. The WOD begins with a 2.2km run to the memorial erected in honor of the fallen athletes. Upon arrival to the monument, participants are given the opportunity to personally dedicate this part of the workout to the Olympic athletes. 11 squats, 11 burpee, 11 sit ups, 11 push ups in memory of the 11 murdered athletes. Participants then run back 2.2km. Upon arrival they complete 11 snatches (60/40kg); an 11m, each direction, heavy bag carry using the Greco-Roman “over-under” grip; complete an agility course that simulates the agility used in fencing and hurdle jumping from Track and Field; and finally, an 11 ft. sandbag accuracy toss to simulate the marksmanship necessary to compete in Shooting. If you miss, you repeat the agility course and try again, repeat until a “bulls-eye” is achieved.
