Cambodian gymnasts Sum Srorn (right) and Veas Rith practice their routine at Olympic Stadium Monday. The Cambodian National Aerobic Gymnastic Team will travel by bus to Bangkok today to compete at the 1st Aerobic Gymnastics Asian Championships from March 27 to 29. The team will comprise six athletes aged 12 to 21 - three females and three males.  The females will compete in the 12-14 year age-group Trio and Individual categories, and the males in the Senior Trio and Individual categories. Following two top-five placings at international competitions last year in Macau, Vietnam and Thailand, the team is hoping to repeat their success under national coach Nay Phonna. However, they face strong competition - most notably from China, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam and Thailand. All of the athletes come from Takeo province, where aerobic gymnastics has become a popular sport, and are sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, and the Cambodian Gymnastics Federation.
