In summer 2018, a rescue mission in the treacherous confines of a flooded Tham Luang cave complex in Thailand saved all 12 boys and their soccer coach who were trapped deep within. It ended a grueling, 18-day ordeal that claimed the life of an experienced volunteer diver, former Navy SEAL, Saman Kunan.

On Friday, July 6, 2018, Saman, 38, lost consciousness from a lack of oxygen on his way out of the Tham Luang cave complex after delivering supplies to the missing group.

Coaches at Crossfit Chiang Mai created this “Saman” hero WOD in his honor. The workout explained is:
– 8 rounds because the kids were 3.2 km inside the cave 400m x 8 = 3.2 km
– 13 for the boys and their coach
– 17 for the how long they were trapped inside the cave

Scaling Options for this WOD will be the following:

Option 1 (choose if the 400M Runs are your limiting factor)

8 Rounds

13 Deadlifts (Choose Weight)

17 Wall Ball (choose WB weight)

200 Meter Run

Option 2  (choose if the 400M Runs are OK, but you need fewer rounds of running and weight work)

5 Rounds

13 Deadlifts (choose weight)

17 Wall Ball (choose weight)

400 Meter Run

These are NOT the only scaling options, but certainly a good guideline to look at for your own scaling option.  Your Coach can help you determine what is best for you.  This is a HERO WOD and not meant to be easy, so push yourself a little with this, but lets make sure you have a good plan in place that allows you to get the most out of this WOD.
