A veritable peloton of 25 trainee cyclists and officials attended the first day of the Kingdom’s inaugural cycling coaching course at the National Olympics Committee of Cambodia headquarters yesterday.
The 10-day course, which is organised by the NOCC and sponsored by the International Olympics Committee and the Olympics Solidarity funding programme, will help train cyclists from the Cambodian Cycling Federation, Department of Physical Educational and Sports affiliated clubs and other provincial associations.
Houshang Amiri, a Canadian cycling coach boasting more than 37 years of experience, will head the sessions of both theory and practice around the grounds of the National Sports Complex.
NOCC General Secretary Vath Chamroeun, meanwhile, noted that the course was the third of six to be held this calendar year, following the successful hosting of basketball and police sports clubs seminars. A course on gymnastics and two on sports administration in Kmapot and Pailin provinces are also scheduled.
