The women’s championship was a rematch of a Pool A meeting between the teams, which Thailand, the Asian Women’s Championship runnerup, also won via sweep.
Vietnam brought home the bronze medal in both the men’s and women’s competitions. The women edged the Philippines in four sets, while the men downed Myanmar in four.
