Pattaya adds fourth gold to Thai medal haul

The 33-year-old comfortably beat Great Britain’s David Smith 7-0 in the mixed individual BC1 final at the ExCel Arena after he had won gold in the mixed team BC1-2.

Thailand’s other two gold medallists are table tennis star Rungroj Thainiyom and fencer Saysunee Jana.

At press time last night, Thailand have won seven medals _ four golds, one silver and two bronzes.

On Friday night, Saichon Konjen finished third in the 400m wheelchair racing T54. Unfortunately, he was later disqualified for stepping on a line.

Thai Paralympic chief Chutinant Bhirombhakdi yesterday took the rest of the team to a tour of Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge stadium.

Pattaya celebrates his win.

Chutinant is an executive at Singha Corporation which is a global partner of the English Premier League football club.
