Smart Mobile sponsor for teams bound for SEA Games

Cambodian athletes were given yet further encouragement to achieve success at next month’s 26th SEA Games in Indonesia after local phone operator Smart Mobile signed an agreement with the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia on Tuesday to donate US$3,000 to the departing delegation. According to NOCC General Secretary Vath Chamroeun, Smart Mobile would also offer substantial phone credit prizes to SEA Games medalists, with a gold medal winner receiving a $50 voucher every month for a whole year, $20 per month for a silver medal and $10 for a bronze. NOCC President Thong Khon lauded the latest contribution to Cambodian sport, which saw Smart Mobile join NagaWorld and Angkor beer as main sponsors of the Indonesia-bound teams. Any Cambodian athlete capturing a gold medal should expect to receive around US$12,000 each through cash bonuses awarded by the government as well as corporate benefactors.
