Wrestling coaches grapple with special training course

Olympic Solidarity, a commission of the International Olympic Committee that helps fund programs for developing nations, has worked with the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia to launch a special training course for local wrestling coaches.

According to Thin Vichet, general secretary of the Cambodian Wresting Federation, the six-day course started on Tuesday with 26 coaches from various clubs and associations based around Phnom Penh in attendance.

Armenian wrestling instructor Stephen Kazarian, who also works as a specialist for Olympic Solidarity, will conduct both theory and practical seminars.

Yesterday morning at NOCC headquarters, Kazarian gave a lesson on the history of wrestling, which was interpreted by director of the CWF’s technical department, Hok Chheang Kim.
