This hero workout is dedicated to Officer Tara O’Sullivan, Sacramento Police, who was shot and killed at the scene of a domestic disturbance in the 200 block of Redwood Avenue Sacramento, California on June 19, 2019.
At the time of her death, Officer O’Sullivan was standing on the front lawn of a residence when a gunman opened fire with a rifle from inside the home, fatally wounding her.
Tara set the Sacramento Police Department record for the plank hold at 26 minutes and 7 seconds straight when she was a recruit at the Sacramento Police Academy. The academy’s gym, now named the Officer Tara O’Sullivan Memorial Gym, was dedicated in her honor on August 30, 2019.
