National team members drawn up for sporting year

The list of national team athletes for 2014 has been approved by the Education Minister Hang Chuon Naron, with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport also accepting two new sports of fencing and triathlon.

According to National Training Centre director Bun Sok, a total of 207 males, 64 females, 58 coaches and 22 officials have been confirmed as national team members for this year’s sporting calendar.

On the admittance of the two new sports, Bun Sok said: “Including [fencing and triathlon] in the national sports setup is one of our strategies to give them a chance to push teenagers towards participation in the 32nd SEA Games, which Cambodia will host [in 2023].”

The Football Federation of Cambodia is the only organisation yet to submit a list of national team players due to their current focus on domestic competitions.
