Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, May 13, 2015: The national sepak takraw team brought home two bronze medals from the 30th King’s Cup in Bangkok held from May 4-10, reports The Brunei Times. The first bronze medal came from the regu event in the Premier Division while the second medal was from the regu event in Division 1.

“This achievement is something that I am very proud of,” said the team’s manager, Hj Mohammad Hairullah Hj Mohd Daud. “In the Premier Division we were up against the best teams in the world, and for us to win a medal is a very big achievement.

“Most of the countries which participated in the Premier Division of the King’s Cup will be competing in the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in Singapore next month. It is going to be tough, but we will try hard and give it our best,” he added.

The national team was in Thailand for intensive training since April as they stepped up their preparations for the 28th SEA Games in Singapore in June.
