The 2014 Youth Wrestling Championship, hosted by the Cambodian Wrestling Federation and held at the Booyong Khmer Taekwondo Hall in the National Sports Complex, concluded three days of competition on Sunday featuring 125 aspiring grapplers.
CWF president Vath Chamroeun stated during his address at the closing ceremony that they had yet to decide on the number of junior candidates for the 2023 SEA Games, which Cambodia is set to host.
Cambodian wrestlers scooped four gold medals at the 2013 SEA Games in Myanmar. “We’ve selected number one to number three in each discipline but we cannot make a decision now because we’re not sure if they want to continue the training.
We also expect to find the candidates who are not yet skilled, but are interested in this sport,” he said. Moen Ek Wrestling Association topped the medals table in the competition with five golds, six silvers and six bronzes, while Phnom Penh Club grabbed five golds, two silvers and eight bronzes and Ministry of Interior Club took two golds, two silvers and a bronze.
