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.
