NOCC issues edict to SEA Games hopefuls

The secretary-general of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia, Vath Chamroeun, who is nearing the end of his first four-year term in office, has set out several guidelines for athletes, coaches and officials heading to December 11-22 SEA Games in Myanmar.

The directives from the NOCC’s top administrator are part of the pre-Games preparations which are likely to figure prominently during next month’s General Assembly, the date and venue for which have not yet been announced.

Prerequisites as outlined by the NOCC include checking the validity of passports, contacting the International Affairs Department of the NOCC in cases where participants have no passports and submission of Games participation application forms by all the general secretaries of the affiliated federations.

The fourth NOCC edict is directed towards Cambodian athletes living abroad, requiring them to submit before August 26 their CV’s and training records along with their passports.

Meanwhile, Tourism Minister and NOCC President Thong Khon has set the same deadline for all federations to register as members.

High on the agenda of the annual General Assembly will be the conclusion of the 2009-2013 mandate of the executive committee, leading to a fresh four-year term for the next administration.
