Judo championships roll out to little fanfare

The 2013 National Judo Championship concluded its five days of competition on Sunday in the Dambol Touk indoor hall of the National Sports Complex, with organisers lamenting a lack of improvement in the standard of judokas domestically.

Pou Chumsery, the deputy general secretary of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, who co-hosted the tournament along with the Cambodian Judo Federation, told the Post that the same five clubs and one association had joined the past four editions with participating numbers failing to significantly increase.

Sixty-two male and 21 female judokas competed this year with the Ministry and Federation looking to find new talent for the national team, which is slated to attend inter-national events next year.  Translated by Cheng Seryrith
