On Saturday, June 18, the main site Workout of the Day (CrossFit.com) will be a Hero workout called Eva Strong, in honor of Eva Mireles. We will also be doing Eva Strong here at CFWP.
Mireles was a member of Shotgun CrossFit and a nine-time participant in the CrossFit Open. She died on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, while shielding her fourth-grade students from a gunman at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
Mireles’ coach Mandi Reading and some of Mireles’ closest friends put their heads together to create the Eva Strong workout. The workout contains Mireles’ favorite movements, and the rep scheme memorializes the lives lost in the tragic shooting: 5 for May, 24 for the day of the month, 19 for the number of students, and 2 for Mireles and Garcia.
Anyone interested in making donations in Mireles’ honor may direct their contributions to the Robb School Memorial Fund.
With a partner, 5 rounds for time of:
24 Double-unders (each)
19 Toes to Bar (total)
2 Clean and Jerks (total) 205/135
400m Run (together)
