Brief: No medals from event

A four-strong Cambodian delegation returned last Thursday without having won any medals at a French-speaking nations’ sporting event held from September 27 to October 6 in Lebanon. The athletes included marathon runner Hem Bunting and boxers Svay Ratha, Long Lamda and Chan Vibol. Hem Bunting, who won a silver medal in the marathon and bronze medal in the 5,000 metres at the 2007 SEA Games in Thailand, said he had not enough time to prepare for event. Svay Ratha and Long Lamda lost their fights by decision, and Chan Vibol was stopped by his Bulgarian opponent in the second round.
