Bandid Jaiyen

Bandid Jaiyen is a former badminton player who won numerous Thai national titles and also excelled internationally between the late 1960s and the early 1980s. Thailand's leading singles player for a decade, the diminutive Jaiyen performed exceptionally well in Thomas Cup (men's international team) competition. He played a leading role in Thailand's upset win over Malaysia in Asian zone final of the 1973 Thomas Cup series.[1] Noted for his exquisite strokes and tactical astuteness, he was the only player to win a match against an Indonesian opponent in the 1976 Thomas Cup series, and was one of only two to do so in the 1973 series.[2] Among other international tournaments, Jaiyen won the South East Asian Peninsular singles title in 1975,[3] the Canadian Open singles title in 1976, and the Auckland International singles title in 1977.[4]
