Thailand’s sepak takraw team produced a scintillating performance to beat Malaysia en route to clinching gold medal at the ongoing KL SEA Games, over the weekend.
Having lost to Indonesia, Malaysia went into the match as major underdogs and it didn’t take long for the Thailand boys to show why. They clinched the first regu rather comfortably, winning 21-15, 21-17. But the tempo took a major twist in the second regu, as Thailand upped their ante and secured a crushing 21-10, 21-6 win.
If you thought that was bad enough, they went on to double their momentum in the third regu and completely annihilated the home team by beating them 21-9, 21-8.
Unsurprisingly, a short clip from the last one minute of the bout has gone viral, given how easy it looked for the Thai boys to outclass Malaysia, despite playing away from home.
