9-11 Tribute WOD

RSS

9-11 WODFourteen years ago on September 11, 2001, the United States was brutally attacked. Four planes were hijacked by terrorists.  Two of the planes were sent crashing into the Twin Towers in New York, New York; the third plane into the Pentagon in Washington D.C.; and the fourth into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  By the end of the attacks, the death toll had mounted to nearly 3,000 souls, including the 227 civilians and 19 hijackers aboard the four planes and 343 and 72 police and firemen respectively.

The damage done during these attacks has had a lasting effect on our country, and today we recall the full impact of those events that unfolded a sleepy Tuesday in September. Today we pay tribute to those civilians’ whose lives were taken from us too soon and honor those policemen and firefighters who fought to protect us.

 ******If athletes begin the WOD with a Row, they finish with a Run and vice versa.

The workout symbolizes the events that unfolded on September 11, 2001, in its design.  The date and year are represented by the row (i.e. 2001 meters) and the 9 movements, each including 11 repetitions. The 125-pound Thrusters represent the deaths that occurred at the Pentagon; the 175-pound Power Clean stands for AA Flight 175 that collided with the South Tower; Flight 77 and Flight 93 were combined and are represented in the 170-pound Deadlift; and the 110-pound Push Jerk signifies the number floors in each of the Twin Towers.

Pay a small tribute to those who were lost. Never forget – 9/11.
