Welcome to LIFT issue 42

Sports have a different role in every society. In some countries sports stars are wildly popular and wealthy. In other countries, the best athletes are treated as quasi-gods. In Cambodia, athletes rarely rely on their sport to make a living, and most people see sports merely as games or another form of exercise.

In this issue we find out if sports can be a profitable career for athletes who commit themselves to being the best (page 4) and we identify the sports most likely to make a profit in the years to come.

We also look for new ways that people are staying fit in the Kingdom to give you some new exercising ideas (page 8).

After a week vacation, the Constructive Cambodian is back, and this time Tharum Bun wants our readers to understand the importance of continuing to learn after you leave the classroom (page 10). Also, don’t miss our youth of the week, whose work is operating computers around the world.
