Athletics Committee is formed from local stars

The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC) has formed an Athletics Committee aimed at helping to best represent the interests of Cambodian athletes and funding future events, NOCC officials confirmed on Monday.

NOCC general secretary Vath Chamroeun, an accomplished wrestler in his youth who flew the flag for Cambodia at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, has been appointed as president of the committee.

His deputy has been named as Ket Sivan, a swimmer who competed in the women’s 50m freestyle event at the 2004 Athens Games.

Completing the committee is Chov Sotheara, the Kingdom’s gold medal-winning female wrestler from the 2009 SEA Games in Vientiane, who will act as secretary.

The Athletics Committee is the last of ten different committees to be formed by the NOCC which divide the workload of the sports governing body.
