Hun Sen to splash the cash for Games medals

Prime Minister Hun Sen gathered all twenty of Cambodia’s sports federations bound for the 26th SEA Games in Indonesia at the Peace Palace yesterday to announce even more incentives to bring home medals. In addition to the Government’s subdecree for rewarding sporting success at the biennial regional competition, as well as corporate sponsorship deals, the premier claimed he would donate cash from his own pocket to any athlete that grabbed glory for the Kingdom. A gold medallist would earn US$3,000 from Hun Sen, while silver medal winners would collect $2,000 and bronzes $1,000.
