And both Thailand's Women and Men's Teams have achieved success at the recent Guangzhou Asian Games as reported in Bangkok Post:
GUANGZHOU : Thailand's badminton players put aside a simmering row with their sport's leaders and worked towards the common goal of winning medals for the country at the Asian Games yesterday.
The Thai women's badminton team took silver after losing to China 3-0 in the final of the team event yesterday, while their male compatriots took bronze a day earlier in the men's team event.
While the two squads failed to win gold, their achievements are a huge success for Thai badminton.
The women's team reached the final for the first time in 44 years, while the men knocked out Malaysia, (Boonsak bt LCW 9-21, 21-10, 21-19 in Team event) featuring world number one Lee Chong Wei, in the quarter-finals.
The shuttlers achieved the feat after burying the hatchetwith Thailand's badminton bosses over sponsorship and financial issues.
Several national team players, led by siblings Boonsak and Salakjit Ponsana, were in conflict with Charoen Wattanasin, president of the Badmintion Association of Thailand, earlier this year which had cast a pall over Thailand's preparations.
Coach Somphol Kukasemkit gave credit to Khunying Patthama Leesawattrakul, who was appointed team manager just before the Asiad, for helping to mend fences between the players and the association.
"She has played a vital role in our success," said Somphol.
And Ratchanok was in the Guangzhou AG team as reported in People's Daily Online:
"Another Thai badminton rising star is 15-year-old Ratchanok Inthanon. Ratchanok won the Badminton World Federation World Junior Championships two years in a row for women's singles and became the youngest-ever champion -- 14 years old last year -- at the world junior tournament last.
Participating in the Asian Games for the first time, Ratchanok said for now she was not 100 percent ready for the Games as her physical condition is not yet perfect -- She still carries some injuries, which, however, failed to weaken her confidence.
"If I can recover on time, I will try my best to win a gold medal."
The teenager rising star added that it would be her first time to China, so if she lost in the first several rounds, she would take the rest of her time in China to travel across the country. But she is seen to have a big chance to get to the final round."

Oh yes, I forgot to mention that her aggression is very controlled. Hard-hitting, but still accurate. She doesn't swing wildly.
