Athletes compete at third CCC Aquathlon

Participants in the 2014 CCC Aquathlon splashed and dashed their way around the Cambodian Country Club on Saturday morning for the annual athletic competition’s third edition.

Hem Thon Ponleu and his niece Hem Thon Vithiny, both two-time Cambodian swimming representatives at the Olympics, topped the podiums in the men’s and women’s 18-30 years old classes.

Ponleu completed the six-lap course, which totaled a 350-metre swim and 4,800m run, in 26 minutes, 3.65 seconds, while Vithiny set a time of 33:16:73. Phon Phirum, stable-mate of Vithiny at Rithy Sen Club, won the male U18 division in 15:52:14, which involved a 150m swim and a 4,800 run.

Met Mariyan grabbed gold in the female U18 event over the same distance by finishing in 18:19:69. The over-35 category (250m swim, 4,000m run) saw Frenchman and CCC team member Patrick Cabaves triumph in 25:11:49.
