Badminton duo head out to Asian Games

Cambodia’s delegation, comprised of badminton players Cheng Phearom and Kev Pech Chhorvy and headed by Tourism Minister and President of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia Thong Khon, set off for the 2nd Asian Youth Games in Nanjing, China, yesterday morning.

Prior to departure at Phnom Penh International Airport, the minister told reporters: “Despite there being 45 sports competed at this big event, we only send badminton players to participate as it is Cambodia’s most impressive discipline, and our best chance for good results.”

King Norodom Sihamoni and Queen Mother Norodom Monineath are now visiting China and are booked to attend today’s opening ceremony.
