CNVLD unveil Cup logo

The Cambodian National Volleyball League (Disabled) has launched a new logo for the 2011 WOVD Standing Volleyball World Cup to be staged at the Olympic Stadium from July 21 to 26.

The design by graphic artist Keith Kelly features representations of Preah Vihear, one of the Kingdom’s world heritage sites, and a lotus flower, which is an important symbol in Buddhism.

CNVLD Secretary General Christopher Minko told The Post yesterday that preparations to host an unprecedented third successive World Cup in Phnom Penh had been proceeding at a “brisk pace”.

“We are determined to make this event the best ever and no effort will be spared to achieve this,” he said.

“As of now, Malaysia, Slovakia, Germany, Egypt, India, Poland and Sri Lanka have confirmed their participation. We are still awaiting word from USA, China, Thailand, Democratic Republic of Korea, Australia and Laos.

“Uzbekistan could be here as an exhibition team only,” Minko added.
