Thailand hoping for three taekwondo berths at the Beijing Olympics

Thailand is hoping for at least three taekwando berths at the Beijing Olympics. Chonnapas Preamwaew’s bronze in Manchester qualifiers gave Thailand its first taekwondo berth. Their next chance is in Vietnam at the Asian qualifiers.
