What is the advantage of your favorite sport?

Son Sovichea, 28 years old, former member of the taekwondo national team
“Any kind of sport provides a great deal of advantages for our health. For instance, taekwondo is a sport that can help us release our anger and stress effectively. Futhermore, it is also a sport that we can use to protect ourselves when we are needed or in an emergency.”

Thai Sokheng, 22 years old, tennis lover
“Playing tennis does not require the hard running  thatother kinds of sport do. When the tennis ball comes to us, both hands and legs are moving at the same time, so that I do not have to run or hit so hard when I get into position. Playing tennis teaches us to better concentrate and be ready for anything at all times.”

Nget oudom, 20 years old, swimmer
“Swimming is different from other sports; all parts of the body are needed to move. Therefore, swimming makes the process of blood work smoothly and reduces stress that we get from work or other things in life. In addition, since swimming requires every part of our body to move, it also helps to redcue pains somewhere on our legs or hands that are sprained.” 

Kunheng Sivey, 22 years old, gym trainer
“If we are free enough and have an opportunity, it would be better to begin exercising at the gym when we are young. Exercising not only leads to a healthy lifestyle, it also results in a handsome and good-looking body. For those people who are a bit unhealthy, they should choose a gym to exercise due to the fact that they will reduce the cholesterol, fat and poisons from our body.”

Kheng Pisal, 24 years old, gym trainer

“Most of the women who come to my gym always think that doing exercise like running and weightlifting will lead them to have big muscles like men. In fact, that is completely wrong. Exercise is equally important for women as for men. By exercising, girls and women will be healthy, have strong bones, and will not easily get sick.”
