Sitting volleyball team set for ParaGames medal hunt

The National Paralympics Committee of Cambodia has decided to send a sitting volleyball team instead of the more prolific standing volleyball team to the upcoming 6th ASEAN Para-Games in Surakarta, Indonesia.

The December 12-22 event will feature athletes with disabilities from Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, East Timor, Malaysia as well as the host nation.

The team, who have been training for the past month together, will send a select seven from their 12-strong squad to compete in the event they hold firm hopes of a medal. According to their coach, Yim Vanna, the favourites are Myanmar while he noted a “70 per cent” improvement in the Cambodian line up’s standard.
