Police team grab third in Laos golf tourney of ASEANPOL

The General-Commissariat of the National Police proudly flew the Cambodian flag at the recent 31st Chiefs of Police Conference (ASEANAPOL) held in Vientiane by finishing third in a golf tournament. The annual meeting between police officers from the ASEAN nations requires each member to send a team of four representatives. The Kingdom’s squad, consisting of Moun Saron, Li Hong, Kam Bunna and Sen Vanna, finished the two-day event on 28 over par, four shots off winners Indonesia and tied with Thailand. However, the tournament committee awarded Thailand silver due to a superior number of birdies over their 36 holes. Cambodia’s Ly Hong also finished third in the individual tourney.  TRANSLATED BY IN SOPHENG
