Today we are performing our CrossFit Tel Aviv Hero WOD: “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, 40 years ago.
אימון הי”א included 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, athletes perform 11 pistols and 11 HR push ups in memory of the 11 murdered athletes. Participants then run back 2.2km, upon arrival they complete 11 snatches; 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. This is an annual tradition.
In Memory of: Moshe Weinberg, Yosef Romano, Ze’ev Friedman, David Berger, Yakov Springer, Eliezer Helfin, Yossef Gutfreund, Kehat Shorr, Mark Slavin, Andre Spitzer, Amitzur Shapira”
