The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia is set to host its three-day ‘Sport For All’ programme in Rattanakiri province starting this Sunday. The event, which was held last year in Preah Sihanouk province, is aimed at introducing and promoting sports in provincial Cambodia. “All programmes of the Olympic Movement in Cambodia relating to sports are supported and funded by the [International Olympic Committee] through the Olympic Solidarity Programme,” said NOCC President and Tourism Minister Thong Khon. Around 100 athletes and trainers will depart Phnom Penh for the trip to the north-east on Saturday to help participate in the event.
