    There is a Thai dessert called "Thong-Yord" which has its shape looks like teardrop and has a golden-yellow color(see link below for image). I suppose the writer playing words with the name of Thai dessert. Indeed, the school name is Ban-Thong-Yord, as you can see in the article embedded picture, which means the house of Thong-Yord...thereby...house of golden teardrops.

    I suppose the school has some reputation internationally. Carolina Marin said she also used to train there.

    It's the Thai sweet made from eggs and sugar. Other names: golden drops, eggdrop sweet. The meaning of 'Ban Thongyord' (May's club) is 'House of Golden Drops' (Ban = house; Thongyord = golden drops).

    12 years. Let's assume 6 days a week and 4 hours per day. 2 weeks holiday per year.

    12 x 50 x 6 x 4 = 14,400 hours....... Wow...

    If it is assumed 6 hours of training per day, then 21,600hours.

    That's what's needed to be the top of the world. I am a bit behind that figure

    She also enrolled at Bangkok Thonburi University earlier this year, but was allowed a flexible class schedule to fit around her badminton training and tournaments.

    I have watched Pattarasuda play in a tournament in Singapore. Very impressive indeed.
