Another cheerleader hurt while competing in Chiang Mai

Despite assurances of safety, another cheerleader accident in Chiang Mai has resulted in injury. After a recent event in Chonburi, where a university student fell into a coma after an accident while practicing with her team, public concern has been growing. This time, Kanokwan Thitiwong, Faculty of Humanity third year student was competing at the To Be Number One Cheerleader Championship 2005, held on June 29 at Central Airport Plaza Department Store.

Doctor and nurses treat the injury.

The accident took place in the final competition while the Twister Cheer team from Chiang Mai Rajabhat University was performing. The performance had run for only three minutes when the student fell after trying for a higher level on a pyramid, resulting in a fracture of her right hand. Doctors and nurses immediately treated her but the Mac Media Company, the organizer of the competition, attempted to stop reporters taking photographs, as they were afraid of poor publicity.

Dr. ML Somchai Jakrapan, Department of Mental Health director general, who presided over the opening ceremony, said that all sports have some risks, and that this kind of sport is appropriate for youngsters as it is good exercise. However, they should be careful and be aware that accidents can happen. This competition did not allow athletes to perform risky acts and there were four persons supporting the pyramid, not just three as in the past.
