Swimming centre to be built in Kampong Cham

Cambodia’s second international-standard swimming centre is set to be built in Kampong Cham provincial town after being given the green light by authorities.

Eight months of proposed construction on the $1 million facility, to be named the Decho Sen Swimming Centre, is slated to begin early next month on a 1.25-hectare plot of land allocated by Kampong Cham governor Hun Neng.

Cambodian Swimming Federation president Sun Chanthol and National Olympic Committee of Cambodia president Thong Khon helped initiate the project, and the organisations are purported to be funding the building costs.

The centre will be primarily used for local and international swim meets and practice sessions, and will add to the Kingdom’s only other international-standard swimming pool at Olympic Stadium in Phnom Penh’s National Sports Complex.
