Tea Banh lauds success of Para Games

Minister of National Defence Tea Banh, who also heads the Cambodia ASEAN Para Games Organising Committee (CAMAPGOC), reiterated that Cambodia has made successful efforts to organise all sports pitches at the 12th ASEAN Para Games smoothly.

Tea Banh attended the Morodok Techo National Stadium to watch the games today.

“He noted that although organising the Paralympic Games presented some complex challenges, especially regarding specialised equipment, the Kingdom had done well, and the games have so far been considered a great success,” said a June 9 Ministry of Information press release.

He added that through its hosting of the SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games, Cambodia had gained many strategies and tactics that had enhanced its abilities to host such events.

Cambodia has learned a lot from the experiences, as have its athletes. Although the Kingdom may not have earned many medals, it has successfully hosted its first Para Games, he added.

“As hosts, we have won as many gold medals as our strategy indicated we would, and we were able to focus on our strongest athletes. At last year’s 11th ASEAN Para Games in Solo, Indonesia, we claimed seven gold medals, but this time around we won nine,” he concluded.
