Cambodia makes waves at Malaysian boat races

A Cambodian crew of 18 brought home the silver medal from the 2012 Kedah Internat-ional Dragon Boat Festival, raced last weekend along a one-kilometre stretch of the Kedah river in the Malaysian state capital of Alor Star.

Cambodia finished second among a field of 10 at the event, held in conjunction with celebrat-ions for the 84th birthday of the Sultan of Kedah. Indonesia claimed top honours and the accompanying 10,000-ringgit (US$3,265) cash prize, ahead of Cambodia, who collected 5,000 ringgit.

Teams from Thailand, Brunei, Singapore and five from hosts Malaysia also competed.
