Background: 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 Thai 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 @cfcnxfitness designed this “Saman” hero WOD in his honor. The significance of the rep scheme:
– 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

We first saw the workout posted by WOD Nation @teamwodnation on Facebook, with credit to CrossFit Chiang Mai. Thanks to @keelofit for bringing the post to our attention.
