"Saman"
8 rounds for time of:
13 deadlifts (185 lb / 125 lb)
17 wall ball shots (20 lb / 14 lb)
400-meter run

Retired Thai Navy SEAL and Petty Office First Class Saman Kunan died on July 6, 2018, when he ran out of oxygen while diving through a flooded cave after successfully delivering air tanks to a group of 12 young students and their coach who were trapped there. Saman volunteered for the mission; all of the children and their coach were subsequently rescued.    Coaches at CrossFit Chiang Mai created this WOD in his honor: 13 deadlifts per round for the trapped students and coach; 17 wall ball shots per round for the days they spent underground; 8 x 400 meters for the 3.2 km distance that they were trapped inside the cave.    Boxes across the world will be participating in this workout on August 11 in commemoration of Saman's heroism.
