Taekwondo stars head to Ho Chi Minh tourney

The Cambodian Taekwondo Federation is sending a nine-strong delegation to the 2012 Asian Taekwondo Championships, which kick off in Ho Chi Minh City today and run until May 12.

Six athletes, including London Olympics-bound female star Sorn Davin, will compete in various categories in Vietnam.

Sorn Davin and her younger sister, Sorn Sivmey, will be involved in combat discipline (Kyorugi) fights as well as male team-mates Chey Rithy and Buth Bunthoeun.

Meanwhile, male practitioners Phal Sovannat and Chhoeun Lina will vie in the performance competition (Poomsae).
