Taekwondo team brings back pair of bronze medals

A Cambodian delegation returned home from last weekend’s 2013 Francophone Taekwondo Championships in Ho Chi Minh City with bronze medals hanging round the necks of two of its athletes. So Narong, competing in the men’s under-81kg category, received a win by default in his opening round match after his Congolese opponent failed to show. He then lost to a Gabonese fighter to collect third place in the event. Meanwhile, Chhoeung Puthearim grabbed bronze in the women’s under-51kg class after beating a Cameroonian but losing to a Senegalese. 18 French-speaking nations took part in the tournament, now in its ninth edition.
