Both quarterbacks were among the 32 athletes honored at a ceremony in Bangkok
The Southeast Asian Games Foundation (SEA) hosted an event at Central Chaengwattana in Bangkok to honor the Thai legends of the Southeast Asian Games.
Among the 32 athletes honored on Monday were Nootsara Tomkom and Prim Inthawong, who attended the ceremony with the president of the Thai Volleyball Association, Somporn Chaibangyang.
Prim and Nootsara led an era of dominance in women’s volleyball in Thailand, making them the sporting legends of the Southeast Asian nation. These two greats won 14 of the 16 gold medals won by Thailand in regional multi-sport competitions.
Prim made her SEA Games debut and won gold at Kuala Lumpur 1989, followed by five more gold medals and a silver medal.
Nootsara’s first appearance was in Kuala Lumpur 2001, where she was a student of Prim until the next edition in Hanoi 2003.
Nootsara carried this responsibility with great commitment, achieving amazing results. After winning two gold medals as the second quarterback, she won eight consecutive gold medals and led Thailand to world status and the greatest period in their history.
