On Thursday, March 15th, we lost our friend Tripp Zanetis when his helicopter went down in a terrible accident in Iraq. Tripp was on his third deployment in Iraq as a pilot with his Air National Guard unit. Although Tripp joined CrossFit Gantry in October, many of us had know him for many years through the NY CrossFit community. Tripp was an amazing CrossFitter, and recently was focusing exclusively on Olympic Weightlifting. Tripp was also an NYU Grad, an FDNY Fire Marshall a recent graduate of Stamford Law School. We are currently working with CrossFit HQ to have a hero WOD created in his honor.
