🇦🇺Support Australia – Team WOD Fundraiser Saturday 11th Jan🇦🇺

This Saturday 11th Jan we are running a fundraising Team WOD session during the normal Team WOD classes to support and raise money for the Australian Red Cross, and also the World Wildlife Fund, due to the horrific and tragic bushfires currently decimating the entire country, people and animal population.

To participate all class attendees will be invited to purchase a raffle ticket for £2.50 at the beginning of the session, with the chance to win some Spitfire merchandise and other awesome prizes.

It will be partner ‘Murph’ and completely scalable to all ages and abilities, and also open to friends and family (non-members) for no drop-in charge, just the purchase of a raffle ticket. So PLEASE grab a friend and get involved, we are very keen to do our bit to help our Ozzy brothers and sisters. Any help we can provide is a huge bonus!

Hero WOD ‘Saman’

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

8 Rounds for Time:

13 X Deadlifts @85/57.5kg
17 X Wall Ball Shots @9/6kg
400m Run
