Cambrew set to splash the cash for medallists

The Angkor Foundation, set up by local drinks company Cambrew Ltd in 2009 with the express purpose of supporting Cambodian sports, culture, education and trade, has come up with a cash incentive scheme for the Kingdom’s gold and silver medallists during the 26th SEA Games in Indonesia in November. Announcing the offer at a media conference yesterday, Cambrew’s Chief Operating Officer Saysana Phommasay said the initiative was meant to boost the morale of the Cambodian squad and inspire them to medal winning performances. “We are here to support Cambodian sports,” he said. “We will offer US$5,000 for team gold and $3000 for individual gold medals. A silver medal will be rewarded with $500 for an individual and $1,000 for a team.” The Cambrew scheme follows the Go For Gold incentives project unveiled by NagaWorld a couple of weeks ago.
