British Hero WOD dedicated to Cpl Ritchie Jones, Royal Military Police, who died in a road traffic accident in Costa Rica in on October 27, 2013.
Jones was a veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq. His friend John Owens (@john.owens.904108) requested @britishherowods create the workout in his memory. His request was that thrusters be incorporated, as they were a favorite of Ritchie's.
From John: "Ritchie was a solid bloke, great rugby player, good manners. A real ladies man and very very loyal. We lost 6 blokes in Iraq in 2003 and Ritchie was a big help in keeping us all together. He organised a surfing trip when we got back and we all discovered surfing and Cornwall. He was a crazy one, a square peg in a round hole and someone who everyone like. Missed a lot by me, he called me on the night of his accident and I was in a surf bar where he had taken me in Cornwall 10 yrs previous."
