Brief: Governor awards prizes

IN a meeting at municipal hall Wednesday evening, Phnom Penh Governor Kep Chuktema stated his pleasure with the Kingdom’s SEA Games athletes, who brought home 40 medals from the recent tournament in Vientiane. “I’m so proud as a Cambodian, and I’m so happy with the result. We reached this because of the leadership of Prime Minister Hun Sen,” the governor said. Kep Chuktema handed out US$500 to each of the three gold medallists, $300 to each of the ten silver medallists, and $200 to all 27 bronze medallists. He also shared a total of $1,000 among the coaches. As promised before their departure, the U23 national football team received $5,000 for scoring five goals in their event.
