What advantages does your favourite sport have?


KosalPanha, 20 years old, a student at Royal University of Law and Economics
“Dancing can make me healthy and have a good body shape. Moreover, it can help me to forget my sadness or stress and become happier. Therefore, I always go to dance whenever I feel bored or full with stress from my work and study. ”


Lun Lunchanthavra, 22 years old, student at Norton University
“Playing football once a week has a lot of benefits for me: it reduces stress and makes me healthier. After a match I always feel tired, but this tiredness refreshes me and is good for my health.”


Reach Van, 16 years old, student studying Bokator
“I choose to learn Bokator because I think it has many benefits. It can help me to protect myself from my enemies – anyone who wants to attack me. Sports like that is good for studying too: when we work our bodies hard, blood is pushed up to the brain, making us smarter in some way. ”


Vong Sovannarum, 22 years old, student at Royal University of Law and Economics
“I like playing badminton because I think it can make me healthy and have a slim body. Every time I play it I have to jump up and down, and by doing so, it can make my body get slimmer and slimmer. It is not only keeping fit for me, but it works to burn up my calories.”


Khun Kolkosal, 20 years old, student at University of Health Sciences
“Swimming helps me a lot. I think it is a very healthy to way to burn up calories and get fit. It is a sport but you do not get sweaty as you’re already in the water. I like that, since I feel uncomfortable from sticky sweat when I do other sports. Moreover, it helps keeping me alert and sharp at all time. Lastly, I think swimming is the best sport for building up your body especially your shoulders. All in all, I get a lot of joy from this activity.”
