Overview

Team profile

Thailand

Thailand are still chasing their dream for their first ever Olympic Games participation. They started their campaign in 2004 and only came close to this dream in 2012 when they placed fifth at the World Olympic Qualification Tournament in Japan, separated only by a fraction of a set with eventual Olympic bronze medallists Japan in the overall standing. Thailand have certainly found a way to stay on top of their game as a result of their perseverance and exposure from international competitions, and now, the Asian side are riding on experience of their veterans and are packing a punch with their new crop of players.

Thailand made their World Grand Prix debut in 2002 and have participated in all but the 2007 edition, when they hosted the World University Games. Their best performance came in 2012 when they finished fourth and last year they finished 11th in Group 1. In 2013 they finished 13th but were able to celebrate victory in the Asian Championships for the second time after their 2009 success. They also triumphed at the 2012 Asian Cup and have 11 victories at the South East Asian Games, where they have taken gold in each of the last seven tournaments. At the 2014 World Championship they finished level-17th in their third appearance, first appearing in 1998. In addition, they have competed at the Grand Champions Cup twice and the World Cup once.

In 2009 he led the team to their first Asian Championship title and then again in 2013. As a player, Kiattipong won gold with Thailand at the 1985 and 1995 South East Asian Games.
