Published on November 27, 2014 by   ·   No Comments

The particular Asian Beach Games came to a detailed on Sunday in Phuket, and hosts Thailand finished way free from all-competition in the medals table, grabbing 56 golds – more than some other country’s total of gold, gold and bronze out together!

And four of those golds came in the various sepaktakraw events. Within the men’s regu final, the hosting companies defeated Indonesia 21-8, 21-16, while in the women’s, they took down Vietnam 21-8, 21-12. Vietnam had defeated Lao 21-16, 21-17 in a restricted semi-final, while Thailand – featuring Somruedee Pruepruk, Thidarat Soda then newcomer Jariya Seesawad at the internet – cruised past Indonesia, who else had Dini Mita Sari, Akyko Micheel, Widya Andrini Nur Isni Chikita and Kusnelia in the team, all with ISTAF experience.

In the team event Thailand’s men defeated India in the semis then Korea in the final, 21-5, 21-6. Korea had all of their ISTAF stars on show, but they had been no match for the Thai’s beach-specific team. Alongside India, Iran required the other bronze medal, pushing Korea to 2-1 in the first “leg” of the team semi, then successful the second leg. Korea had the particular strength in depth however to earn the deciding leg 2-0.

Thailand also won the particular women’s team event, defeating Vietnam again in the final 21-11, 21-7 in the first leg then 21-12, 21-17 in the second. Vietnam also sent a beach-specific team, and it will be interesting to see if any one of them feature in the next ISTAF SuperSeries in early 2015. Korea and Cina were the beaten semi-finalists, and they played an incredibly tight ranking complement which Korea just edged.

In the trio (beach comparative of doubles) competition, Thailand did not enter, so there was a chance for other teams to achieve some glory. And Brunei certainly did that, their men edging out Korea in a tasty final 21-18, 21-23, 21-15. Korea had Park Hyeong Geun, Im An Soo and Kim Youngman, but it was Ismail Ang, Hiffzuddin Jamaludin, Nur Alimin Sungoh and Skukri Jaineh – again, all with ISS pedigree – who took gold. Within the women’s, Lao defeated Myanmar (runners-up), Korea (bronze) and India (fourth) to win the four-team competitors and take gold. How good it will be to see the Lao women in action in a ISTAF SuperSeries sometime in 2015!

Overall, Thailand won four golds, Lao a precious metal and three bronze and Brunei the remaining gold. Korea had 2 silvers (thanks to their men) and two bronze medals, while Vietnam also claimed two silvers courtesy of their women. Indonesia and Myanmar (silver + bronze) and Indian and Iran (two bronze) most had two medals, and Cina also got on the board with a bronze, meaning that none of the ten teams went away empty-handed.
