Running for Olympic Day

THE National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC) marked the 116th Olympic Day on Friday with a 5-kilometre run in Kampong Cham. Over 500 participants, including secondary school and university students, teachers and other civil servants, competed in the event, presided over by NOCC Secretary General Vath Chamroeun and other local dignitaries. The run was won by 25-year-old Min Daing, who finished in a time of 21 minutes 45 second in his 18-35 age category. 35-year-old Chim Sreyneich was the fastest women on the day. The 41-and-above category drew most applause, including impressive efforts from 75-year-old Luy Sokhon who finished the race in sixth place. Medals were awarded to podium placers, and the top eight in each division received certificates and cash prizes.
