CCC brings thrills, spills of sumo to youngsters

The Cambodian Country Club hosted a fun sumo event on Saturday morning on the riverside opposite the Night Market as part of their youth development project.

Baggy plastic suits helped add bulk to the youngsters’ diminutive frames for friendly bouts of the traditional Japanese sport.

The CCC’s chief of public administration, Lan Rors, told the Post: “Our club also has many sports for the public to play including volleyball, soccer, table-tennis, badminton, horse-racing, skating and basketball. Sumo costumes are one of our new imports.”
