The WOD itself is completely symbolic of 9/11. The 2001m row or run represents the year the attack took place. The 11 reps of 9 exercises represent the date. Even the weights have meaning. The 125b thrusters represents the number of deaths that occurred at the Pentagon. The 175b power clean symbolizes AA Flight 175 that hit the South Tower. The 170lb deadlift is symbolic of Flight 77 and Flight 93 combined. The 110b push jerk represents the number of floors in each tower of the World Trade Center.
