The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports has decided to send a 23-strong delegation from the Cambodia Vovinam Federation to Vietnam so they can receive expert training in professional facilities that they lack domestically. The team, which includes 14 male and 6 female athletes and lead by Federation President Roth Sokhorn, will practice the Vietnamese martial art for 11 weeks in the buildup to the 2nd World Vovinam Championships held in Ho Chi Minh City from July 27-30. The team are also looking forward to a regional competition to be held in Phnom Penh in October and the 26th SEA Games in Indonesia in November.
