Wrestling Federation confident of medal haul

The Cambodian wrestling squad will head to Yangon for a 10-day training course from tomorrow with Cambodian Wrestling Federation general secretary Thin Vichet claiming the grapplers have “enough ability to earn medals” at the 27th SEA Games in Myanmar next month.

Cambodia will send 14 wrestlers to vie for glory at the games, including 2009 female gold medalist Chov Sothea, 2011 male gold medalist Nout Sophal and Cambodian-American Sou Chusu.

As well as following the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport’s training program, the team conducted a course with athletes from Laos and Myanmar in September at the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia headquarters.

“The Vietnam team is our greatest rivals for medals – they are even more dangerous than Thailand,” added Thin Vichet, who is also the national team assistant coach.
