Petanque ace Ke Leng was named the Female Athlete of the year, while Cambodia’s most medal-productive sport in the SEA Games also saw Sok Mong bag the best coach award. The winner of the men’s 400 metres (T46) at the ASEAN Para Games, Bong Hong, took the honours as the Male Para Athlete of the year.
