The Cambodian Swimming Federation is set to host a three-day competition at the Olympic Stadium pool of the National Sports Complex from October 17 to 19 as part of the national squad preparations for December’s SEA Games in Myanmar, as well as marking the one-year anniversary of the death of King Father Norodom Sihanouk.
The meet, which has received $5,000 from sponsors FTB Bank towards running costs, will feature 50 male and 31 female participants from eight swimming clubs and associations.
“It’s a good opportunity for our six national team swimmers, including two females, to warm up for the 27th SEA Games,” CSF vice president Hem Chan Ly told the Post. Events over 50 and 100 metres in freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly strokes will be competed by over 16-year-old male and females, 12-16 males and females and U12 males and females. There will also be 4x100m relay races.
