Agnese "Chomphoo" Campeol, an 18-year-old Thai athlete, has been honored by the Olympic Museum to exhibit her sports outfits and equipment at the museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, announced Khunying Patama Leeswadtrakul, a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

Agnese secured the first medal for the Thai national team at the Winter Youth Olympic Games 2024 in Gangwon, South Korea, in January this year, clinching a silver in the women’s monobob competition in bobsleigh.

Khunying Patama, who is also the chairperson of the IOC's Culture and Olympic Heritage Commission, stated that Agnese and Thailand are highly honored by the selection to showcase her sports attire and equipment at the Olympic Museum, under the guidance and coordination of the Culture and Olympic Heritage Commission. The presentation ceremony for Agnese's attire and equipment took place on May 3rd.

Agnese began her journey with the Ski and Snowboard Association of Thailand, where they actively sought athletes interested in participating in the Winter Youth Olympic Games. Her determination to compete led her to receive support from programs like the New Horizons Programme and the PyeongChang Legacy Foundation.

Furthermore, on May 5, Khunying Patama had the honor of presenting the gold medal to the Chinese team, who claimed the championship at the TotalEnergies BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals 2024. Silver medals were awarded to the Indonesian team, the runners-up, while bronze medals were given to the South Korean and Japanese teams in the women's team championship, held at the Hi-Tech Zone Sports Center Gymnasium in Chengdu, China.
