The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia is set to sign a memorandum of understanding with local beverage company Cambrew on Wednesday that will see medal winners at the 2013 SEA Games in Myanmar this December bank sizable cash bonuses.
NOCC president and tourism minister Thong Khon and Cambrew general director Saysana Phommasy will sign the agreement at a ceremony held at Beeline Arena. Gold medalists in Myanmar will be granted $6,000 from the company, whose major brand is Angkor Beer. Silver medals will earn $4,000 and bronze $2,000.
Teams will share identical amounts for corresponding podium places, while head coaches also receive the same cash as their successful athletes. All rewards are an increase on previous prizes offered by Cambrew for medals at the 2011 SEA Games in Indonesia. translated by Cheng Seryrith
