Cambodian players get boost ahead of games

A two-week technical course for basketball coaches, conducted by Australia’s Graham Neil Gliddon, concluded at the National Olympic Committte of Cambodia’s convention hall yesterday. As many as 25 coaches, 10 of them from various provinces, attended the course. “This is the first time we had a programme like this for basketball, and the results were very encouraging. Our aim is to popularise the game [in the Kingdom],” NOCC secretary-general Vath Chamroeun told the Post yesterday. “Cambodia will be taking part in SEA Games basketball [event]. It is difficult to form a good team from among the players in Cambodia. We are looking for Cambodians living abroad with basketball talent to fill in,” said Vath Chamroeun, adding that   he had already identified two players from the US and two from Europe.
