Ni Samnang gets her hands on cash bonuses

Cambodian wrestler Ni Samnang received numerous cash bonuses during a special ceremony at the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia headquarters on Sunday, following her bronze medal success at the fourth Asian Beach Games in Phuket last month.

The government subdecree on rewarding international sporting success granted the 19-year-old 24 million riel (US$5,907), an amount also given to her coach Thin Vichet. In addition, Samnang collected two cheques for $3,000 each from sponsors NagaWorld and Angkor Beer.

However, the 2013 SEA Games gold medalist said she was looking for more endorsements to further her wrestling career. “I really need the help from other companies . . . I can promote their products and get money to support my annual training program at home as well as abroad,” said Samnang.

“I set a target to win a gold medal at the Asian Beach Games, but in order to achieve that I need more sponsorship.”
