‘Engage in sport’ Olympic Day marked in Kampong Thom school

Hundreds of students took active part in Olympic Day celebrations on Sunday at Ban Dos Vichea Primary and Secondary School in Kampong Thom province’s Baray district.

Organised annually by the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia, the day marked the recognition of Olympic values and its impact on the younger generation.

The NOCC team of officials was led by adviser Ken Gadaffi (pictured), who drove home the vital importance of the Olympic Movement and encouraged youth to engage in sport to stay healthy and strong.

Marking the occasion, the NOCC presented the students sporting equipment.

Until last year, the NOCC had made Olympic Day celebrations part of the Phnom Penh International Half Marathon but broke away from that tradition by taking it to the students’ communities in different parts of the country.
