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.
