Sovan clan cleans up at Shorinji Kempo event

It was a good day out for one particular family at the National Shorinji Kempo Championships, which wrapped up four days of competition on Saturday at the Olympic Stadium indoor hall.

Three offspring of Shorinji Kempo Federation of Cambodia president Lach Chan Sovan brought home a haul of 10 gold medals and two silvers from the competition.

Eldest son Sovan Kiri won four gold medals in Division A, including one in under-75kg combat fighting, one in individual and two in team performances (along with his sister Sovan Rachana and teammate Kit Hok Chei).

Rachana herself also won four golds and younger brother Rathanak took home a brace of titles. According to a report from the federation, the event featured 100 participants, including 22 females, from five clubs and associations.
