Cambodia scored 5 unanswered points with the attack of Ly Senghay and

some magical defense to come within 2 of Canada, down 10-12 during the game, above, on day 2 of the 2005 Men's World Cup Standing Volleyball in Regina Saskatchewan last week. Canada went on to win the set 25-13.

On day 4, Cambodia defeated Rwanda in straight sets, 3-0, 25-14, 25-14, 25-14. It was a slow start for both teams, but Cambodia finally broke through to take an 8-4 lead. Cambodia came out of a time-out and scored 8 consecutive points to take a huge 16-4 advantage. Rwanda would add to their total, but never get close, as Cambodia won 25-14. The remaining sets were similar, with Cambodia never looking like losing.

On day 5, Germany defeated Cambodia 3-1, 25-22, 21-25, 25-16, 26-24 and went on to face Canada for gold.

On the final day Slovakia took the bronze when it beat Cambodia 3-0, 25-21, 25-22, 25-12, leaving the Kingdom to take a respectable fourth place.
