It was their sixth successive title at the Games and ninth overall (1965, 1971, 2005, 2011, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2021), reports the Bangkok Post.

Lalinrat Chaiwan beat Komang Ayu Cahya Dewi 21-19, 21-17.

Jongkolphan Kititharakul and Rawinda Prajongjai then outplayed Fabriana Dwipuji Kusuma and Amallia Cahaya Pratiwi 21-11, 21-15.

Supanida Katethong defeated Ester Nurumi Tri Wardoyo 21-11, 21-12 next to wrap the tie for Thailand.

Thai badminton chief Khunying Patama Leeswadtrakul congratulated the team on their success.

“I would like to congratulate the women’s team for winning the gold medal and the men’s team for winning bronze,” she said. “Thanks to all the coaching staff for their hard work.

“Although most of the players are youngsters who are here because all the senior players are going to compete in the Sudirman Cup, I believe they will do well in the upcoming individual events,” she added.

The Thais took the first frame 34-25 after a close tussle, but Laotian duo of Sitthideth Sakbieng and Suriya Minlavong hit back to claim three frames on the trot and secure a 3-1 upper hand.

The Thai pair then blanked their opponents 38-0 in the fifth to kick-start a recovery and did not face much resistance in the next two frames, which they won 32-7 and 30-18 to seal the title.
