Pak So-nam retires from Cambodia’s wrestling mats

Cambodia’s North Korean-born wrestling coach Pak So-nam is set to return home today, with the Cambodian Wresting Federation throwing a farewell party for the 58-year-old on Monday night at Pyongyang restaurant.

The coach, who has spent nearly a decade in the Kingdom instructing wrestling, received a Swatch watch gift from CWF president Chea Bunheng as well as plaudits from attendees such as National Olympic Committee of Cambodia general secretary Vath Chamroeun and federation benefactor Casey Barnett.

Chamroeun told the Post that the CWF would “of course” be appointing a new foreign coach to guide the national team, which grabbed four gold medals at last month’s SEA Games in Myanmar, but would wait until the build-up to the next major international competition.
