Wrestling accounted for four golds, while taekwondo and petanque had one gold each as Cambodia garnered a record 48 medals, including 11 silver from the biennial Games.

The chief financial officer of NagaWorld, Philip Lee, distributed the cash prizes, which stemmed from the Go For Gold program.

A special award of $500 each for the eight gold medals won was presented to the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia via its secretary-general, Vath Chamroeun.

Two more bonanzas await the Games medallists, one from Angkor Beer and the other from the Ministry of Education under a special governmental sub-decree on cash incentives for sporting achievements.
