Old, new members elected onto NOCC’s Executive Committee

The two-day General Assembly of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia concluded at its headquarters on the periphery of the National Sports Complex on Tuesday with incumbent President Thong Khon re-elected for his third successive four-year term in office.

Three new members, Ouk Sethycheat (basketball), Sa Khon (table tennis) and Chhoun Leng (non-Olympic) were also voted in to join the Executive Committee of 10 headed by the president.

The other members of the committee are Nout Sa An (cycling), Sao Sokha (football), Ly Kosal (badminton), San Sopheoun (volleyball), Tem Meun (boxing) and Hem Thon (swimming).

Thong Khon later announced the re-appointment of Vath Chamroeun as the NOCC secretary general for his second term.

The assembly also passed the secretary general’s annual report and the Financial Statement for the year 2012-2013.

The morning session on the final day was dominated by a detailed discussion on the status of the SEA Games and Cambodia’s performance progression following a comprehensive presentation by the secretary general of the Cambodian Basketball Federation, Ouk Sethycheat.

Vath Chamroeun told the Post: “I am honoured to serve the NOCC for a second term. It gives me a great opportunity to build on several exciting projects we have launched in the last one year and also set in motion the process of creating a master plan for our SEA Games 2023 campaign.

“The roadmap Sieh Kok Chi of Malaysia presented to help us prepare for 2023 Games has been very helpful and an ideal starting point. But our focus will also be on enhancing the performances of our athletes in the coming years,” he added.
