Cambodia’s Chum Chivinn won the silver medal in the 120kg Greco-Roman wrestling.

VIENTIANE – After beating Thailand’s Puris Kaewkoed in his 120kg Greco-Roman wrestling semifinal Tuesday morning, Cambodia’s Chum Chivinn said: “I think I can go ahead to get the victory for the Kingdom.” However, his opponent, Khonekeo Thatthavong from Laos, had other ideas, and triumphed in the final later that evening to force the Cambodian into silver. The Kingdom also grabbed a bronze from the ring Tuesday through 74kg Greco-Roman wrestler Dorn Saov.
