NOCC to fund incentives

The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC) has pledged to offer cash incentives to successful athletes at the upcoming Asian Indoor Games in Vietnam, revealed NOCC General Secretary Vath Chamroeun on Friday. The government usually provide monetary prizes to athletes for winning medals in sports events, but the NOCC have taken sole responsibility for organising the Cambodian contingent for the Games, and have promised to find funds to pay medalists. Cambodia has participated in both of the previous tournaments (in Thailand and China), attaining best results of fifth in aerobic gymnastics and fourth in Chinese chess.
