Volleyball 'dream team'

Cambodia’s national team for the World Organisation Volleyball for Disabled (WOVD) World Championships, to be held December 15-20 in Phnom Penh, was named last week, with organisers calling it their strongest side yet to be entered in competition. “Our best team yet. A dream team,” Chris Minko, secretary general of the Cambodian National Volleyball League (Disabled), said in an email. “I fully believe that Cambodia has the ability to reach No 1 in the world ... this is Cambodia’s best chance to secure [its] first-ever team sports No 1 in the world,” added Minko (pictured seated on right). Cambodia will be pitted against teams from Slovakia, Poland, Germany, India and Malaysia, with Vietnam and Laos also possibly attending, organisers said. Coach Christian Zepp is expected to return next week to guide the team through preparations for the WOVD championships. Cambodia has steadily climbed up the rankings in championship play, from a 6th-place finish in 2001 to a place on the podium at 3rd in the 2007 championships.
