World No.13 Busanan “Cream” Ongbamrungphan ended her quest for a medal today, losing 15-21, 15-21 to No.8 An Se-Young of South Korea.

The Thai fought for 53 minutes but she could not break the stiff defence and decisiveness of the South Korean. Busanan has failed to take a set in their three encounters.

Her exit left Ratchanok as the only Thai player still in the contest.
