International badminton comp concludes in Sihanoukville

The 2014 Sar Kheng Badminton Cup wrapped up in Sihanoukville’s Ministry of Interior Hall yesterday, featuring a smaller international field than originally planned.

Teams from Thailand and Laos were forced to withdraw from the three-day doubles competition due to the military coup in Bangkok, leaving only visitors from Vietnam to compete against Cambodian players.

Ha Ann and Tann from Hanoi won the men’s U30 division, while compatriots Thang and Mann triumphed in men’s 30-39.

Doubles partners known only as Da and Tam grabbed top spot in the 40-49 class, while Kong Phaly and Keo Bopha of the Ministry of Interior Club were best in the 50-59 section.

Khan Sovan and Lim Chav Eng from Sihanoukville were the over-60s champions, and Thuy and Hoa from Ho Chi Minh took the women’s title.
