The Cambodian Wrestling Federation hosts its Friendship Training course from today at the Dambol Touk indoor hall of the National Sports Complex.

The six-day course, funded by the Olympic Solidarity Commission and sanctioned by the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia, will tomorrow welcome 10 athletes from Laos and Myanmar to join the 20-strong Cambodian squad, who are vying for places in the delegation bound for December’s SEA Games in Myanmar.

“We’re all enthusiastic about promoting the sport of wrestling and glad to exchange our modest experience,” NOCC General Secretary Vath Chamroeun told the Post.

Sessions will be held from 9-11am and 4-6pm at the hall. Laos and Myanmar federations are covering the travel costs of their representatives, while the NOCC will cover food, accommodation and training costs during their stay.
