Bodybuilders primed for SEA Games assault

The Cambodian Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation aims to flex their might at this year’s SEA Games, with 20 athletes slated to be sent to Myanmar in December.

During a press conference held on Friday at the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia headquarters, CBBFF President Rasmey Sokmongkul told reporters that despite a lack of extensive training at the National Training Centre in the National Sports Centre, he expected his men to bring home medals from the 27th edition of the region’s biennial multi-sports showcase.

The president singled out two individuals in particular as medal hopes – brothers Sambo Nan and Sambo Noun, who have lived and competed in Thailand and sought after by the Thai federation.
