Thailand’s second medal winner at the Tokyo Games also received prize money of 4.8 million baht and some good news from the Royal Thai Navy.

As a reward for her success, Sudaporn will be promoted from the rank of Navy ranger to sub-lieutenant as soon as she arrives back in Thailand.

Taew has a bachelor's degree, which makes her eligible for the promotion to the rank of junior officer.
