The General Assembly of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC) was convened yesterday morning, with the committee reflecting on a successful 2016 and setting its sights on plans to boost Cambodian sport ahead of the 2023 SEA Games which will be hosted in in the kingdom.
NOCC president Thong Khon and secretary-general Vath Chamroeun both addressed media and dignitaries at the event and reflected on the 2016 National Games – the first such event in Cambodian history in which more than 2,700 athletes from across the kingdom competed on behalf of their provinces in 15 sporting disciplines.
Mr. Chamroeun said the drawing up of a five-point plan would help to maintain the good work and considerable achievements by Cambodian athletes and hoped this would accelerate ahead of the 2023 SEA Games.
The General Assembly aims to tackle key issues regarding sports reform in the kingdom. Mr. Chamrouen and Mr. Khon welcomed visiting delegates from the respective national sports federations, as well as those in the field of sports development.
A short video was also aired for delegates, highlighting the achievements of Cambodian athletes in 2016.
The conference was also attended by special invitee Kok Chi Sieh, deputy secretary-general of the Olympic Council of Malaysia.
