The delegation, led by Thai Olympic chief Prawit Wongsuwon, met the prime minister at Government House yesterday (Aug 6) ahead of the Asian Games to be held in Indonesia from Aug 18-Sept 2.

Gen Prayut told them that while they have to do their best as representatives of Thailand, they should not forget about sportsmanship and friendship.

“You have to keep in mind that a sports competition is not all about winning. If you win but lose friendship then it is useless. The objective of a sports competition is everybody must have sportsmanship,” he said.
