Sovanaroth goes down to Tajik at Asian Games

Even as the Kingdom eagerly looked ahead to taekwondo star Sorn Seavmey’s return to top class competition at the 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia on Tuesday, one of the less experienced members of the squad, Ny Sovanaroth, went down to his rival from Tajikistan.

Sovanaroth lost 30-11 to Sunatov Mahmad Jon in the men’s section.

Cambodia also suffered a setback in the pool when Lim Keo Udom struggled to fifth in Heat 2 of the men’s 50m backstroke.

Udom’s time of 30.68 seconds was good enough for him to place 32nd out of 38 in the competition.

Meanwhile, female wrestler Chey Chan Raksmey lost 4-7 to Virangsa Jantima of Thailand in the 53 kg quarterfinals. Another Cambodian female wrestling hope, Dorn Sros, went down 4-0 in the 57kg class by Tissina Emma of Kazakhstan.
