Thailand won no medals in 1984. Sakul Kumtan was the first Thai Paralympic medallist when he won silver in the javelin (men's A3A9 category) in 1988 - Thailand's only medal of those Games. The country was far more successful in later years, although it did not win its first gold medals until 2000. Thai athletes have won a total of nine gold medals, seventeen silver and eighteen bronze, in a variety of sports: track and field, swimming, powerlifting, archery, boccia, wheelchair fencing and wheelchair tennis.
in 2004, Koysub, Wahoram, Pichet Krungget and Rawat Tana in both the men's 4x100m and 4x400m (T53-54); and Saysunee Jana in the women's épée individual (category B) - Thailand's first woman Paralympic champion
in 2008, Wahoram in the men's 5,000m (T54).
Prawat Wahoram is thus Thailand's most successful Paralympian to date, with five gold medals, while Saysunee Jana remains the only Thai woman to have won a Paralympic gold medal.
