A team of four Cambodians took home the Kingdom’s first gold medal in the martial art Vovinam during competition over the weekend at the third Asian Indoor Games, hosted by Vietnam. Cambodian athletes also scored four silver and four bronze medals, winning a total of nine of the 46 medals up for grabs in the tournament, which showcased a number of skills that make up Vovinam, from multiple weapon routines to displays of self-defence and fighting. Nuth Sreyroath, Tep Tem Mony, Nuth Serey Ratha and Prak Sovanny comprised the gold-winning team, beating out teams from India and Indonesia. Nuth Sreyroath and Nuth Serey Ratha also picked up bronzes in individual categories, along with Chan Rothna and Nang Vilay.
Cambodia won the silvers in team competition.
Brief: Gameweek 11 winner
Friday, 06 November 2009 15:00 DAN RILEY
The last weekend had an air of predictability, with many managers amassing some impressive points totals with their star men. Favourites such as Fabregas (11 points), Lampard (12) and Van Persie (15) had big games, while lesser known individuals such as Burnley’s brace bagging defender Graham Alexander (21) and Portsmouth’s hat trick hero Aruna Dindane (20) were dream choices. A hearty pat on the back, as well as US$20 phone credit and a T-shirt from Cellcard, goes to Long Seyha for his side Jun Pi Ka United with an outstanding 96 points. Seyha benefitted from fielding the awesome Alexander, along with Fabregas (captain), Van Persie, Anelka and Rooney. There was also a shakeup at top of the table, with Mick Wade finally being usurped by Art Nolen’s Smart Kick with a weekly score of 91. Next week’s deadline is the usual Saturday at 5:30pm, so pick your squad before then.
