Swimmers splashed with cash after Qatar

National team swimmers were yesterday rewarded for their exploits in June’s 12th FINA World Swimming Championship, which was held in Qatar, with cash prizes donated by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sar Kheng.

During a ceremony at the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia headquarters presided over by the Ministry’s Sports Club chief Chea Bunheng, female silver medalist Nen Somaly and male teammate Cheng Sopha, who came fourth in Qatar, collected $300 and $150 respectively, while coach Hem Kiry received $200.

“I and my fellow team-mates really appreciate the prizes from Deputy Prime Minister Sar Kheng, who always cares about us, and we pledge to make our results even better at [future competitions].”
