PHNOM PENH, March 19 (Vietnam News/ANN): Regional athletes are set to compete in 37 sports at the 2023 Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 32) in Cambodia this May.

Vath Chamroeun, Secretary-General of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia, said among the 37 sports, Cambodia has decided to include three traditional ones – Ouk Chaktrang (chess), and the two martial arts Bokator and Kun Khmer.

He noted that the three will be a golden opportunity for Cambodian to show these traditional sports to foreign audiences and will be expected to snatch more medals, reported the local newspaper Khmer Times.

According to Ou Dara, Deputy Secretary-General of Cambodia Kun Bokator Federation, at least five countries have registered to join Bokator events at the games – they are Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines and Indonesia.

Before the 32nd SEA Games in May, Cambodia plans to organise two events – the International Bokator Referee Training Course from March 24 to 28 and Cambodia Kun Bokator National Championship which runs from March 29 to April 3.

Cambodia will host the 32nd SEA Games from May 5 to 17, 2023 and 12th ASEAN Para Games from June 3 to 9, 2023.

Both games are combined and called “Cambodia 2023” to reflect unity, diversity, and equality. The slogan of Cambodia 2023 is “Sport: Live in Peace”. - Vietnam News/ANN
