Amonrat Jamporn’s historic victory in the SL3 women’s singles at the World Championships is a testament to her skill and determination. Born in Thailand but representing Australia, Jamporn couldn’t have asked for a better setting for her win than the NSDF ROYAL BEACH CLIFF BWF Para Badminton World Championships 2024, which is being held in her home country.

Jamporn expressed her joy at winning on such a grand stage, stating, “I’m so happy it happened on the biggest stage I’ve played on.” She defeated Kamtam Wandee in Group F with a score of 21-15, 18-21, 21-15. The tournament being held in Thailand allowed her to celebrate her victory with her family, including her grandparents, mom, and brother who specially drove 10 hours to watch her play.

Despite facing a life-altering accident in 2014 that led to the loss of her left leg above the knee, Jamporn never gave up on her love for badminton. After learning to walk with a prosthetic leg, she returned to the court to compete in Para badminton. Starting with local tournaments in 2018, she quickly established herself as an international player in the following year.

Jamporn’s dedication to the sport is driven by her love for the game. Despite juggling training with looking after her two children, she remains determined to excel. Her daughter sees her as a “super woman” and proudly shares her achievements with others. Jamporn’s goal is to win a medal and dedicate it to her daughter.

In her upcoming match, Jamporn will face fifth seed Zuxian Xiao. A win in this match will secure her a spot in the quarterfinals in Pattaya, Thailand. This encounter will be their first on the court, adding an extra layer of excitement to the competition.

Jamporn’s win in Group F was crucial following her loss in the first match against Charanjeet Kaur. She learned valuable lessons from that match and adapted to the court conditions. Staying consistent and calm will be key to her continued success.
