This hero workout is dedicated to Private First Class Mark Schouwink, and 1st Lieutenant Dennis van Uhm, both of the 45th Armoured Infantry Battalion (Ermelo), Netherlands Royal Army, who were killed by an improvised explosive device on April 18, 2008, at 07:36 local time, during a peace mission in Uruzgan, Afghanistan.
This workout was designed by Marcel Noordegraaf from CrossFit Zeewolde @crossfitzeewolde (Zeewolde, Netherlands), who was a colleague of Mark & Dennis’ and was also deployed to Afghanistan at the time of their death.
A lot of the guys from Mark & Dennis’ unit got a tattoo with the date of 2008 April 18 and time 07:36 to honor them. For that reason, the workout’s rep scheme used this date and time.
This Workout was first performed on April 18, 2019, at CrossFit Zeewolde. This was a special day because Mark and Dennis’ former company held a memorial for them in the early morning. After that, they all came to CrossFit Zeewolde to perform this special Hero Buddy WOD for the first time. A lot of boxes in The Netherlands joined and programmed this Hero WOD on that specific day. Now every year, this WOD will be performed on April 18 at CrossFit Zeewolde, joined by a lot of other boxes from The Netherlands.
3 Rounds For Time:
15 Push Press 135/95
9 Deadlift 225/135
This hero WOD is dedicated to LCPL Marks who was serving with the Special Operations Task Group when he was killed during deliberate operations against a Taliban Safe Haven on 27 April 2008 in Afghanistan. We first found the workout posted by @australianherogames.
