PONLID Wijan (1976) Thailand / Boxing
Originating from the birthplace of Thai boxing, in which the boxers use their fists and feet, the victory of this little boxer from Thailand in the normal boxing competition at the Sydney games seems to be a bit of paradox, and yet he won by a long chalk in the 51 kg category against Kazakhstan's Jumadilov.As is the tradition for national heros in his country, a parade of 40 elephants and a celestial banquet were held for him on his return. This gold medal won by Wijan Ponlid médaille is the second Olympic title that Thailand has won since the beginnings of the games.
