Verbal blows traded after wrestling course

Myanmar’s Turkish wrestling coach Mustafa Sahin has warned the Cambodian and Laos squads that they need to train harder to stand a chance at winning medals at the 27th SEA Games in Myanmar this December.

The coach was speaking on Tuesday after the conclusion of a five-day Friendship Training Course held at Dambol Touk indoor hall of the National Sports Complex, which was hosted by the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia with support from the Olympic Solidarity movement.

Laos coach Manolom Phinit downplayed his Myanmar counterpart’s concerns, saying “At the end of the training course, I can see we just have different tactics and we are almost the same [in standard].” Meanwhile, NOCC vice president Chea Bun Heng told the Post that the Cambodian team was better than those of the visiting nations.
