Chinlone team bring home medal haul

The Cambodian national chinlone team kicked up a storm in Myanmar, winning two gold and four bronze medals at the 1st Asian Chinlone Championships held at Wunna Theikdi Stadium in Naypyidaw.

The kingdom had sent six male and six female athletes to the four-day competition, which wrapped up on Wednesday, taking one gold and one bronze in men’s team performance and a gold and three bronzes in women’s team performance.

The results saw the Kingdom finish in second place in the medals table behind hosts Myanmar, the birthplace of the artistic ball control sport, with Thailand in third.

The event was joined by players from 12 countries including Pakistan, Japan, Indonesia, India, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, and Brazil.
