Badminton team smash to double of doubles bronzes

The Ministry of Interior badminton team made their debut at the Golden Star Friendly Tournament held in Ho Chi Minh City on Monday, and came away with two event bronzes.

The day-long event, now in its fourth edition, also featured seven other clubs and associations from Vietnam.

Van Chan Pisey was the star of the 14-strong Cambodian squad, taking bronze with his compatriot Chea Bunchanbol in men’s doubles and linking up with a Vietnamese woman to capture bronze in the mixed doubles.

The Cambodian Ministry also celebrated sporting success in Ho Chi Minh City yesterday when their National Police Commissary team secured the 2012 ASEAN Police-Eximbank Cup title after drawing 1-1 with Vietnam.
