    hehe I can't help this crazy talented child prodigy, not only broke many records :

    - The youngest WJC
    - 3x WJC in a row
    - The youngest All England finalist
    - The youngest SS winner
    - The youngest WC (also Thailand first ever WC)
    ------------ I see The Legend in the making --------------

    but also well mannered, very polite, and like to smile (just like TTY)

    Yeah I'm a fan before.. and now I'm officially a big fan!!
    I'm very proud Thailand should be very proud

    I wish May good health, long career, and always have that good respectful attitude

    she always believe she can at least give a very tough challenge to any top player

    but ratchanok will continue to improve
    which made zhang ning headache

    haha
    ...and the headache continues for ZN.
    I am sure Limsy has a crystal ball at home.

    Creating history seems to be one of May's hobbies (apart from drawing).

    Btw, as of today she already got 4.2 MB (USD140 k)reward money. Guess more to come. She can surely afford to buy her family a home now but she said she will do it after Rio 2016. Does this imply she is considering a mansion?

    Royal Thai Police said they will recruit May as a Non-Commissioned Police Officer and after getting a Bachelor's Degree (in Political Science, if not mistaken), she will be promoted to Police Sub-Lieutenant (like Sudket, who is in the same club). That's very good news for family as it's known that Police provides very good health welfare to parents too.

    Her match with LXR has had nearly 900,000 views on the bwf's youtube channel already. Over twice as many as the MS final! I think she'll become one of Thailand's most famous sports people, if she isn't already.

    ^ Yes, and not to taint her victory in any way, but the complete opposite of the Thai MD pairs in Canada just a few wks ago.

    although they all Thai, but what Bodin/Maneepong did has nothing to do with May...! Yes I think they all shame, but May WC will help them forget the sorry episode.
    and why you need to bring this thing??

    so, Zhang Nan disgrace acted @ WC Semifinal wasn't insult the sport?? And because of that we need to dishonour Lin Dan & Wang/Yu WC ? Me myself wouldn't do it!!! They big achievement deserved the respect!

    Thai badminton sensation


    IN THE
    just concluded Badminton World Federation (BWF) Championships in Guangzhou, China, Ratchanok Inthanon of Thailand took the women's crown, beating China's Olympic gold medallist Li Xuerui, to become the youngest world champion ever, at the age of 18.

    Ratchanok is the first Thai and first non-Chinese woman to win the world championship since Denmark's Camilla Martin lifted the title in 1999.

    Upon her arrival back from China, Ratchanok (or "May", as she is fondly called) has received an award from the royal family, given press conferences and attended a talk show as Thailand celebrated their first ever badminton world champion.

    And, typical of the determination and ambition of Thai sports figures, May said: "I'm even more inspired to work harder and will try to win more tournaments", setting herself the twin targets of becoming world number one (she's currently No. 3) and winning the 2016 *Olympic gold in Rio de Janeiro.

    Over the years, May has been BWF's youngest world junior champion, winning that title three years running. She has also won a host of regional events and was a finalist at the 2013 All England Badminton Championships.

    Given her outstanding record, May has every possible chance of achieving her targets.

    However, equally, if not more inspiring to all young sportsmen and women must be May's background her rise to becoming a true champion and her determination to achieve even more through hard work but not letting all the praise and glamour go to her head.

    May's father and mother were both factory workers in Nakhon Pathom province in central Thailand. In their impoverished neighbourhood, as a child, May played around the factory and later in the open-air makeshift badminton courts.

    As her badminton talent was spotted, she began playing in local, provincial and later national tournaments. There was no sophisticated, expensive training stints or big sponsorships for her. But as May earned modest prize money, she used most of it to support her parents and only brother.

    She helped her father open a food stall, at which she and her brother helped after school on the outskirts of Bangkok. May was quoted as saying: "I wanted to be a national player like my older friends and play for the country, because that is the only way I could help my parents to improve our status and leave poverty".

    Winning the recent world title, May's immediate plan was to buy a refrigerator and a washing machine for her mother Kamphan, who still works in a sweet factory.

    Kamphan said of her daughter: "I always taught her to be humble as she was not from a rich family. I told her to be well behaved. She is a very disciplined girl. That's why she has got to this stage".

    Ratchanok Inthanon is certainly an inspiration to all who want to achieve the highest and the best through hard work but one that has always remained humble and caring.
