Hero WOD: Lee Rigsby

1 Comment

Little is known about this Hero presently, aside from he was taken from us not whilst deployed on an Operational Tour of duty, but when he was walking down a road close to his base. He survived the battle for Helmand but not the hatred of the streets.

The CrossFit community across the world will today be paying their respects to this fallen Hero. Please take an hour out of your day to do what we do best. Let everyone who asks know what we’re doing and why we’re doing it. He was taken from us, when he thought he was safe.

Drummer Lee Rigby of the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers was 25 years of age, described as being humorous, generous and loving. “His family meant everything to him, he was a loving son, husband, father, brother and uncle – and a friend to many.” He tragically died on the 22nd of May 2013 in an attack close to his home barracks. Drummer Rigby, 25, from Manchester, leaves behind a two-year-old son; Jack, his mother and his step-father and two sisters.

Rest In Peace Drummer Rigby – we shall not forget
