Australian Army Sergeant Brett Wood, 32, of Ferntree Gully, Victoria, assigned to the 2nd Commando Regiment, based in Sydney, New South Wales, died on May 23, 2011, in Helmand province, Afghanistan, after insurgents attacked him with an improvised explosive device.

This WOD will be done at the majority of Australian CF boxes today. It is being run as a fundraiser so if you would like to donate please hand over some cash to me before the WOD and I will forward all funds raised to the Commando Welfare Trust. Donation is not compulsory but appreciated.


  1. Hey Kelly
    Did this one at DoubleSix beach this morning using a concrete barbell I found whilst swilling and singing with the locals a couple nights ago. No idea how much it weighed but considering the heaviest thing I've lifted for the last 4 days is a Bintang bottle, I think I did ok.
    Did the 400m run on soft sand and did the burpees and box jumps (coconut palm stump jumps) separately.
    Had to buy a watch as I left mine back at the villa so I'm blaming my slow time on the questionable quality of my "genuine Rolex".
    "Wood" 34.14 less 4 minutes rest = 30.14
    Will email photos of my barbell and palm stump

    Cheers, Annie

  2. Annie this would have to be the best CFD comment to date. I am loving that you did this WOD with a random object, in soft sand, using a 'Rolex…'. Very funny, very inspiring, very CrossFit!
