Thai Olympians

Thai Olympians?  But I didn't see any on NBC...
Ahhhh...but NBC doesn't show a lot of sports like weightlifting, taekwondo, and boxing.

Four Thai Olympians brought home metals. Above is medalist Prapawadee Jaroenrattanatarakoon who won the women's 53kg weightlifting.

You can read more from the Bangkok Post.

I also did some digging to find out about the Thai team. It seems like the last time I saw them was marching in the opening ceremony. :)

Sounds like us - We were wondering if they were even at the Olympics... But Matt caught a glimpse of the Thai athletes in the closing ceremonies; I blinked and missed them. Sidebar - How awful for the 5 year old child who had to learn to write that last name.
