Shot put master Leam Veasna wins sixth title

Leam Veasna completed a remarkable sixth men’s shot put win in successive years at the Phnom Penh Regional Athletics Championships held at Olympic Stadium on Sunday, beating seven other competitors in the 7.25kg-shot event with a throw of 10.61 metres.

The 28–year-old, who represents Asia Europe University, was a clear 20 centimetres better than his nearest rival, Human Resource University’s Khon Kheang.

Thoeung Su Veasna, also of Asia Europe University, was way back in third on 8.62 metres.

Leam Veasna told the Post: “I think what I did today is as not good as what I’ve done before. Before I could throw 12.20 metres, but now only 10.61 metres because I’ve been busy with my job and not properly training for nearly a year. However, I will do better next year.”
