Cambodia captures two more bronzes in Laos

Cambodia collected two more bronze medals in Vientiane at the 2012 ASEAN University Games before yesterday’s closing ceremony.

Judoka Sam Sothea, who won a bronze at the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore in 2010, grabbed another third place on the podium in the 45kg women’s competition after beating a Thai opponent in the preliminaries.

Van Ngoc Tu from Vietnam claimed the gold with Phetnida Syamphone from host nation Laos taking silver.

Another bronze medal was awarded to the Cambodian petanque women’s triples squad.

Dina Duong, Ratana May and Srey Pich Chhin took just one victory in a match against Malaysia, which was enough in the event that included only four nations and was won by Laos.

Cambodia ended up in ninth place on the medals table, above Brunei and East Timor.

Malaysia was by far the most successful country, with 178 medals including 60 golds.
