Sovan Kiri triple crown in Karetdo tournament

Sovan Kiri confirmed his dominance in karate by claiming three firsts at the 2011 National Karatedo Championships, which wrapped up its five days of competition at the National Sports Complex on Monday. The 25-year-old, who had also topped the podium during the two previous annual tournaments, won the men’s over-17 individual kata (performance) category, as well as the combative 65kg and freeweight classes. Sovan Kiri’s younger sisters also grabbed honour flags, with Ratanak triumphing in both the women’s over-17 individual kata event and the combative 48kg class, and Rachana winning the combative freeweight division. The Sovans’ club, Salakun Wadoryu, unsurprisingly collected the most flags over Youth Club, the National Team and Mekong University.
