Who is Murph?
The hero workout #Murph made its CrossFit Games debut in 2015 and returned for a second time in 2016. The workout - created in memory of Navy Lt. Michael P. Murphy, who was killed in the line of duty on June 28, 2005, in Afghanistan - begins with a one-mile run, includes 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 air squats, and ends with another mile run, all with a weight vest.
In 2015, Kari Pearce made her first Games appearance and earned a top-five finish in Murph. The next year, Pearce took her first career event win when she finished Murph in 36:42.42. On the men’s side in 2016, Josh Bridges crossed the finish line in 34:38.83 and took first place in the event.
