This workout made its way around the Internet as "Stanley: CrossFit 626 Hero WOD." Interestingly, although it was created by CrossFit 626 and was named after a Stanley, he wasn't a fallen service person as "Hero WOD" implies - he was a loyal pet.

"The workout was actually named after our gym dog who lost his life to tumors," said Pam Eamranond, owner of CrossFit 626 in Pasadena, CA. "Stanley Latimer was one of the founding members of CrossFit 626 and lost his life after a courageous battle with cancer. He will forever be remembered for his love of tackling metcons with friends and family. Nicole (Stan's mom) completes the workout every 2nd of June, and tears up every time."

In the photo Stanley is the golden retriever sitting next to his mom (Nicole) and sister Abbey.
