The Vietnamese sepaktakraw (kick volleyball) women’s team has been named the champion in the quadrant event of the 2022 King’s Cup Sepaktakraw World Championship after beating host Thailand 2-0 in the final on Wednesday night.

It is Vietnam’s first gold in the quadrant event after losing to Thailand numerous times in the past.

In the final played in Bangkok, the Vietnamese quadrant team, including Nguyen Thi My, Nguyen Thi Yen, Tran Thi Ngoc Yen, Nguyen Thi Ngoc Huyen, Tran Thi Thu Hoai, and Nguyen Thi Thu Trang, won 21-15 and 23-21.

Vietnam dominated the event, winning all three group matches, including an absolute 21-0 and 21-0 triumph over Pakistan, and a victory against South Korea in the semifinals.

The King’s Cup Sepaktakraw World Championship is a sepaktakraw team event which is considered to be the most prestigious tournament in the sport as most top national teams compete in this annual competition.
