Embassy, NOCC chiefs discuss 2012 Olympics

British Ambassador to Cambodia Andrew Stephen Mace met with Tourism Minister and National Olympic Committee of Cambodia President Thong Khon on Friday to discuss the participation of local athletes in the 2012 London Olympic Games. “The Royal Government [of Britain] and the Ministry of Sport in England want to make it easier for NOCC members to join [the 2012 Games] and assist Cambodian fans that would like to see the tournament in 2012 in their visa applications”, said the Ambassador. The British Embassy and the NOCC are set to celebrate the 500-day countdown this Saturday, while a public running race is also slated for June 18 to help promote the Olympic movement.
