The Thai women’s national volleyball team was defeated by South Korea in the second round of the 20th Asian Women’s Volleyball Championships in Seoul, but still advanced into the next round.

Coach Danai Sriwatcharamethakul pitched the best Thai players against the South Koreans -- Pluemchit Thinkhao, Nusara Tomkham, Wilawan Apinyapong, Ornuma Sithirak and Makkila Kanthong.

Playing at the Jamsil Arena, the Thai spikers, who earlier won three straight matches, went down 1-3 (20-25, 25-23, 17-25 and 21-25) to the hosts in the second Group E match.

Despite the loss Thailand still advances into the next round along with South Korea, and will play against either China or Japan tomorrow (Aug 24).
