In-form Thailand, strengthened by three national senior players including hard-hitting Ajcharaporn Kongyot and Pimpichaya Kokram, delighted a huge crowd of over 3,500 home spectators packing The Mall Nakhon Ratchasima’s MCC Hall on Saturday when they brushed off Vietnam in comfortable straight sets 25-21 25-15 25-20 in the semi-finals of the SMM 2nd Asian Women’s U23 Volleyball Championship.

The scintillating victory not only secured the Thai squad a final berth at this top-flight championship, but also a spot at the FIVB Volleyball Women’s U23 World Championship to be held this year in Slovenia from September 10 to 17. Thailand, runners-up to China at the previous edition in the Philippines two years ago, have yet lost a match to their respective rivals en route to the Sunday’s final, where they will go up against the winners between unbeaten Japan and Taiwan in the other semi-final encounter in Saturday evening.
