The Khmer Swimming Federation will be sending a group of 19 swimmers for a week-long visit to Japan as part of a training and cultural exchange initiative.
According to Hem Kiry, the general secretary of the federation, the Japanese embassy facilitated the unique opportunity.
The group is a mix of seasoned and promising swimmers who are bound to benefit from exposure to Japan’s excellence in the sport. No date has been set for the departure of the group.
It may be recalled that the Cambodian Karate Do Federation benefited from a similar invitation to visit Japan at the end of last year.
