Taekwondo Association established at NOCC

The Phnom Penh Taekwondo Association was officially founded during a meeting on Tuesday at the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia head office. It will run its first administrative term from 2011 to 2015. According to Sam Sok Yi, vice-director of the National Sports Complex and President of the Cambodian Taekwondo Federation, the association has been formed to help share responsibilities with the feder-ation because of the sport’s overwhelming popularity in the Kingdom’s capital. Sam Sok Yi said there were 13 clubs in operation across in the city, with a total of 756 male and 157 female members. Following a vote at Tuesday’s meeting, Um Vanna was appointed president of the association, with Lim Rachana, Sin Bora and To Rithya taking the deputies’ posts. Phork Veasna was named general secretary. TRANSLATED BY PANN RETHEA
