Gold medallist Chov Sotheara talks women’s rights to kids

Chov Sotheara, Cambodia’s gold-medal-winning wrestler at both the 2009 and 2013 SEA Games, gave a special talk on women’s rights to students at Sihanoukville’s Samdech Euv Secondary School on Saturday.

In her address, which was part of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia’s annual tour to help promote gender equality, Sotheara discussed her own experiences as an elite athlete as well as her opinion on the keys to success during her career.

NOCC general secretary Vath Chamroeun said: “The main purpose of this tour is to encourage women, especially senior pupils, to be brave and participate in modern day sport.”
