Thailand’s National Team did not manage to secure the spot at 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, but their fans welcomed them at home like they did it.



The airport in Thailand’s capital Bangkok was occupied by the fans of Nootsara Tomkom, Onuma Sittirak & Co. For the fans, they are heroines, especially after the match against Japan when media and the fans in Thailand concluded they were damaged by the referees and Japan’s staff.

U know what May 24, 2016 - 12:31 am

After all Thailand has been cheated be the FIVB referee, in front of the whole world.

They not allowed them to changes players despite of electronics device doesnt work. And by FIVB rules if that happen the system will go automatically back to traditional way, by holding a sign. Yet that referee decide not to allow it and gave them red card when they protest.

Now i read from the news, even if they reported and claim this unfairness to FIVB and what do they responses? they said Thai cant complain anythings. Most of the reason because they didnt filed the report within an hour after the match.

Please IOC , do something.

One thing that I can say for sure is that they outplayed Japan and South Korea. I was really impressed by their speed and skills.

Though there’s no evidence because bribery requires no receipt, the world knew clearly what was going on. Astonishingly, parties that try hard not to understand it are only Fivb and Japan. Seems to me ‘Shame’ just doesn’t exist in their dictionaries. Poor Thailand!

That made me really don’t like Japan’s team.

We’re pound of them.

This is amazing. Always rooting for Team Thailand.

Win or lose is not the most important in any sport but the spirit and fairness are. Thailand team has shown a good and fighting spirit. In fact, they outplayed Japan.

Sad for women volleyball athletes from Thailand. The dream of going to the Olympics for the first time failed. Many expect more
Because this tournament is to play the final of many people. Japan beat Thailand and lost chance for Olympics. As soon as the best team in Asia is Thailand (in this tournament).
Thailand won South Korea, Kazakhstan But Japan cheated toward the end of the fourth and fifth sets. Provoked much …. I feel disappointed for a Mexican referee and FIVB
This is the most humiliating event in 21st Century.

Jirokaeru May 24, 2016 - 8:23 pm

Why, the tablets doesn’t work when Thai coach try to changes players on important time, but in Japan side works well…

All of things are business according of Japan is big sponsor for FIVB

That is business

China and South Korea will carry TeamThailand’s dream and spirit with them through the Olympic 2016. They told Thailand just to count on them since the Thai already in their blood. Thailand is not alone but rather having China and Korea and of course this two big teams together will fight for justice for Thailand in Rio 2016. What a GREAT relationship and beautiful moment from true friends after the world’s remarkable shameful match ever: Thailand-Japan Olympic qualification tournament in Japan, May 2016
