Team profile

The end of 2007 was a great period in the history of the Thailand Women's National Team.

They put in a good showing at the 14th Asian Women Volleyball Championship in September that year when they beat Korea, Kazakhstan and Chinese Taipei on their way to claiming third place behind China and eventual winners Japan.

And in their first appearance at a World Cup, the team finished in 10th place with a credible two wins at the 2007 tournament in Japan.

Thailand finished third in 2001 Asian Women Volleyball Championship, beating Japan on the way to this fantastic achievement, before their first appearance in the FIVB World Grand Prix in 2002. Since then they have appeared every year at the tournament except 2007.

Another highlight for the team was its fourth-place finish at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, Qatar.

The Thailand Women's Team was founded in 1979 under an FIVB development plan called "2001 National Team Project."

Thailand is currently focused on qualifying for the 2010 World Championship, 2011 World Cup and 2012 London Olympics.

Coach profile

Kiattipong Radchatagriengkai, a national ace spiker turned head coach, has brought fame and reputation to the Thailand Volleyball Association and its Women's National Team in particular.
Radchatagriengkai spearheaded the Thai Men's National Team to a well-earned title at the 1995 South East Asian Games in Chiang Mai, a northern province of Thailand.
Two years later, Thailand hosted the FIVB Girls' Youth World Championship in the same province. The 43-year-old Radchatagriengkai played a vital role in coaching the Thai girls' team to an unprecedented fifth place, a remarkable success in what turned out to be a golden era for girls' Volleyball in Thailand.
Radchatagriengkai later became the head coach of Thailand's Women's National Team. In 1998, the team made history by qualifying for the first time for the FIVB Women's World Championship in Japan. Radchatagriengkai steered the team to 15th place at the world meet. Under his guidance, Thailand qualified again for the 2002 World Championship Finals in Germany. This time, they finished 20th among the world's top 24 teams.
Under the close supervision of the devoted Radchatagriengkai, the Thai Women's Team also performed superbly to book a berth at the 2010 FIVB Women's World Championship in Tokyo, Japan.
Radchatagriengkai led the team to the eighth place in their World Grand Prix debut in 2002. Last year, he took charge as team manager and piloted the team to 11th place at the premier women's competition.
Despite a daunting task ahead, Radchatagriengkai is very determined to get the Thai team off to a strong start en route to the 2010 World Championship, the 2011 World Cup and the 2012 London Olympic Games.
