NagaWorld to reward Rio medals

Hotel and entertainment complex NagaWorld has announced cash rewards for Cambodian medallists at the Olympic Games in Rio.

As one of the sponsors of the Cambodian squad for the August 5-21 Summer Games, NagaWorld will be offering $20,000 for a gold medal winner, $12,000 for silver and $8,000 for bronze.

NagaWorld previously backed the Cambodian Olympic Team in London 2012 and has been a firm supporter of the Kingdom’s sporting missions at major events since the 2011 SEA Games in Indonesia. NagaWorld has sponsored a full range of training and competition attire for all athletes and officials.

Recently, NagaWorld supported 2014 Asia Games taekwondo gold medallist Sorn Seavmey with $10,000 for her Rio preparations.

As well as being the Kingdom’s first athlete to attain Olympic qualification, Seavmey was also voted the Most Popular Athlete of the Year at the inaugural Cambodian Sports Awards sponsored by the entertainment giants this year.

“The Rio Games is a perfect opportunity to showcase Cambodia on a global stage and we are proud to be involved as an associate and supporter of the NOCC,’’ said executive director Pern Chen

NagaWorld has already pledged its support for NOCC initiatives in the 2017 SEA Games in Malaysia and the Asian Games in Indonesia the following year.
