NOCC details prizes for SEA Games medalists

The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia held a presentation on Tuesday regarding the preparation of athletes for the 27th SEA Games, which begin on December 11 in Myanmar.

The NOCC told attending press and Cambodian sports federation members that in accordance with the government sub-decree on rewarding success
at international competitions, each gold medal-winning athlete would receive US$6,000, each silver winner $4,000 and each bronze $2,000.

Sponsor Angkor Beer will match these amounts to the podium finishers, and NagaWorld and Prime Minister Hun Sen have pledged cash bonuses that mean an athlete will collect $18,000 in total for a gold.

Coaches of medallists will also be rewarded. NOCC secretary-general Vath Chamroeun told reporters that events to be contested by Cambodian athletes would be decided by the end of this month.

The meeting on Tuesday also discussed the relocation of the NOCC headquarters to a newly completed, seven-storey office building on the perimeter of the National Sports Complex, in Prampi Makara district.

An official opening ceremony is expected to be held later this month.
