Chov Sotheara grapples with disappointment

120328_22

Cambodian female wrestler Chov Sotheara returned home yesterday from an unsuccessful trip to Astana, Kazakhstan, where she participated in the Asian qualifiers for the London Olympics.

The 27-year-old fell at the first hurdle in her favoured 48kg weight class against an unnamed Vietnamese opponent who had also beaten her at last year’s SEA Games in Indonesia.

“I lost my bout [on Monday] . . . because of problems with my strength,” Chov Sotheara told the Post.

“When I arrived in Kazakhstan, I had to fight very quickly and I had no time to acclimatise to the cold conditions.”
