Singles silver in 2013, now gold for Thai Busanan
Silver medallist in 2013, Thai teen finally wins singles gold to add to team triumph
With every point she scored, the crowd chanted "Thailand su su (fight!)".
As the chanting got louder, the closer she got to winning the match.
At match-point, Thailand's Busanan Ongbumrungpan even didn't have to see where the shuttlecock was going - she instinctively knew it was going to give her the winning point.
She then released her racket and made a beeline for her coach and gave him a bear hug.
The 19-year-old won her first SEA Games women's singles gold yesterday, outplaying Indonesian debutante Hanna Ramadini 21-17, 21-12 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Busanan was also part of the victorious women's team last Friday.
Two years ago in Naypyidaw, Busanan had lost to another Indonesian, Bellaetrix Manuputty.
Flashing a megawatt smile, she said in halting English: "I was a runner-up at the last SEA Games in Myanmar, so I'm glad that I won a gold medal this time.
"This was her (Hanna) first SEA Games, but she was very good. I tried to speed myself up in the second set and I saw that she made mistakes trying to counter, so I took advantage of it.
"I also got more power from the supporters because they were saying 'Thailand su su'."
A tired Hanna accepted her silver as a consolation, saying that her semi-final win over Malaysian Goh Jin Wei the day before had clearly token a toll on her stamina.
She said: "Near the end of the match today, I could feel my feet get slower even when I was in the lead. I couldn't be consistent, and she caught up with me.
"I'm really tired, but I'm thankful with a silver medal because today I gave my maximum effort.
"This is my first experience in the SEA Games, so for the next time, my motivation will be to hear my national anthem played."
The next aim for the world No. 18 is to play in more competitions and qualify for the Olympics.
But she wants to take a breather for now.
"My dream is of course to be in the Olympics, so I'm going to join competitions that can help me improve my rank," she said.
"But now I just want to have fun."
