Tomorrow we will be doing this team workout in memory of Officer Daniel McCartney. Deputy Sheriff Daniel McCartney was shot and killed after responding to a burglary in progress near 45th Avenue Court East and 200th Street East, in Frederickson, at approximately 11:30 pm.
Deputy McCartney was the first officer on scene and became engaged in a foot pursuit of at least one subject. The man opened fire on Deputy McCartney during the foot pursuit, mortally wounding him. Deputy McCartney was transported to St. Joseph Medical Center where he passed away at approximately 2:00 am.
One subject was found dead at the scene. A second subject was arrested the following day after a massive manhunt.
Deputy McCartney was a U.S. Navy veteran. He had served with the Pierce County Sheriff's Department for three years and had previously served with the Hoquiam Police Department for six years. He is survived by his wife and three sons.
Deputy McCartney was also a coach at CrossFit Yelm. CrossFit Yelm has created this workout to recognize this hero. There are lots of gyms doing this tomorrow and we are going to join in.
**Teams of 3
- 2000m row
- 14 DB Thrusters (50/35)
- 34 KBS (71/53)
- 484 DU’s
- 108 burpees
- 2000m row
- 18 deadlifts (225/185)
*split reps however you want
Why those numbers?
- 2000m+14 reps = The year McCartney started with the Pierce County Sheriff's Department
- 34 = His age
- 484 = His badge number
- 108 = The date of his passing
- 2000+18 = The year of his passing
- 3 team members = to represent the 3 sons he leaves behind
Now I know we have done some of these movements already this week, however, lets show our respect to this fallen officer and join in with the other CrossFit communities across Washington that are doing this same workout tomorrow.
