Brief: Cambodia wins gold in martial arts

A team of four Cambodians took home the Kingdom’s first gold medal in the martial art Vovinam during competition over the weekend at the third Asian Indoor Games, hosted by Vietnam. Cambodian athletes also scored four silver and four bronze medals, winning a total of nine of the 46 medals up for grabs in the tournament, which showcased a number of skills that make up Vovinam, from multiple weapon routines to displays of self-defence and fighting. Nuth Sreyroath, Tep Tem Mony, Nuth Serey Ratha and Prak Sovanny comprised the gold-winning team, beating out teams from India and Indonesia. Nuth Sreyroath and Nuth Serey Ratha also picked up bronzes in individual categories, along with Chan Rothna and Nang Vilay.

Cambodia won the silvers in team competition.
