The 2013 Cambodian National Wrestling Championships concluded its five days of competition on Friday at the Dambol Touk Indoor Hall of the National Sports Complex, with Cambodian Wrestling Federation General Secretary and national team coach Thin Vichet hailing “positive results” from the performances that saw 11 wrestlers handed places on the Cambodian squad bound for the SEA Games in Myanmar this December. The event, co-hosted by the CWF and the Ministry of Education, Youth & Sport, featured a field of 162 male and 15 female grapplers contesting for team prizes worth US$300 to the winner, $200 to runners-up and $100 for third. CamEd Business School rector Casey Barnett contributed $3,000 to the tournament’s running costs.
