Dedicated to Dutch Sergeant Mark Weijdt, 24 years old, of the 11 Airmobile brigade 12e Regiment van Hutzs who was killed by an IED during a peace mission in Afghanistan on December 19, 2008.

The WOD was originally created by Michael Wilson, close friend of Mark Weijdt, and box owner at Crossfit Arnhem (Arnhem, Netherlands).

When contacted, the workout's creator, Mr. Wilson replied, "Mark was a sergeant and my squad leader. He was a sniper. He was a fun guy, very passionate, always positive. I chose these 3 movements to increase heart rate (like the adrenaline rush during our act), box jumps since we were on a hill, and squat cleans because we had to carry Mark (prescribed weight was roughly Mark's weight). The significance of the rep scheme is:
- 19th day
- 12th month
- 8th year
- 5 years since his passing (when the WOD was created in 2013)

Christopher Scott "Chris" Kyle (April 8, 1974 − February 2, 2013) was a United States Navy SEAL and the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. Kyle served four tours in the Iraq War and was awarded several commendations for acts of heroism and meritorious service in combat. He received two Silver Star Medals, five Bronze Star Medals, one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals and numerous other unit and personal awards. Kyle was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy in 2009 and published his bestselling autobiography, American Sniper, in 2012. An eponymous film adaptation of Kyle's book, directed by Clint Eastwood, was released two years later. Chris was a devoted son, brother, husband and father in North Texas, as well as continuing his efforts to helping Veterans re-acclimate to civilian life and combat stress carried home. Kyle was shot dead at a shooting range near Chalk Mountain, Texas. His friend, Chad Littlefield, age 35, was also killed.

The three rounds represent his wife and two children left behind. The 4 movements represent Chris's 4 tours in Iraq. The total reps for each round equaling to 160 repetitions represent his total confirmed kills.
