Four Cambodian Athletes to Participate in the Beijing Olympics

By Soy Sophea

Cambodia will send four athletes to participate in the Beijing Olympics this year, said Meas Sarin, Secretary General of Cambodia’s Olympic Committee.

Sarin told the Cambodia Weekly May 15 that Cambodian athletes will contend in two events this year, including swimming and sprinting. For each of these sports, Cambodia will send one male and one female contender.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen announced last month that King Norodom Sihamoni will take part in the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. This will mark the 50th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral links between China and Cambodia.
