Nov Bopha to make a splash in Singapore

Ministry of Interior Swimming Club’s Nov Bopha will be the only Cambodian representative at the 38th SEA Age Group Swimming Championships, which is being held in Singapore over the weekend.

Hem Thon, vice general secretary of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia and general secretary of the Cambodian Swimming Federation, told the Post: “It’s the 38th edition of these youth games, but the first time the Kingdom will participate.”

National team star Nov Bopha was the sole swimmer selected to attend due to lack of funds. “We expect a positive result from Nov Bopha, who will compete in 100m butterfly and 50m freestyle events,” Hem Thon added.
