World record holder Le Van Cong won two gold medals in the men’s 49kg on the first day of the competition. The powerlifting team also secured an additional three gold and three silver medals on the following days thanks to outstanding performances of women athletes.

The Pattaya event was the third stage of the World Cup series, featuring nearly 160 athletes from 33 countries and territories. It gave points to participants for their Paris Paralympic 2024 campaign.
