Boat tourney races run on Tonle Bassac river

The 2012 Traditional Dragon Boat and Canoe/Kayak Championships wrapped up yesterday in Kandal province’s Takhmao district.

After a week of intense competition along the Tonle Bassac river, champions were found in the various disciplines featuring a total of 494 male and 130 female competitors.

In the C1 canoe class, Phnom Penh’s In Pheary won both 200 and 500 metres.

The Kayak K1 division saw Navy club’s Hun Rady take gold over 200 metres and Hun Radeth triumph over 500 metres.

K2 class for two-man kayaks had Krou Koulin and Morn Mao as winners over 200 metres and Hun Rady and Hun Radeth finish first over 500 metres.

Keeping with tradition in these dragon boat contests, Battambang province took a clean sweep of victories across all races.
