Host Thailand dominates first days of University Worlds

In the women’s events Thailand’s prominent and world-medalled athletes stole the show from the 48kg up to the 58kg categories, while the men’s first and second days produced Thai, Chinese and French winners, alternatingly.

On home turf, Panida KHAMSRI, Kittima SUTHANAN and Sukanya SRISURAT were irresistible, as was Witoon MINGMOON (56kg). China’s YU Tao proved to be the best in the men’s 62kg and – at the end of a nice and close battle – France’s Bernardin KINGUE MATAM triumphed in the 69kg.
