    I have always loved Athletic especially running event from when I was very young, I enjoy competing and when every I can I always try to help others become better athletes. I believe it is very important to support the next generation of athletes so one day they can compete for Cambodia and Cambodia will be noticed by the world as a serious sporting nation.

    I would like it one day to be recognized by the people of Cambodia for all the hard work and dedication I have put in to become Cambodia’s fastest every runner. It would also be good that sports grows and becomes more popular so athletes like myself can get sponsorship so we can dedicate our time fully to becoming the best we are able.

    I do hope Cambodia follows me and my fellow athletes and wishes us the best as we compete for our country in this year’s Olympic Games

    Sorn Davin

    Sex: Female

    Age: 20

    Date of birth: 06-February-1992

    Place of Birth: Reu SeyKeo District, Phnom Penh Capital

    Current Address: Reu SeyKeo District, Phnom Penh Capital

    Disciplin: Taekwondo, Started in 2006

    Competition to date: 2007 Asian Game in Thailand. 2009 in Laos. 2010 Asian Games in China. 2011 in Indonesia.

    I took up Taekwondo because I love to compete. Each time I compete, I feel like a bold person and it makes me very proud and exciting to represent Cambodia in Olympic Games. I have met some very important people because of my Taekwondo such Prime Minister Som Dech Hun Sen. He gave me some very good words of advice, he said “That winning and losing is a natural part of sport, but it is how we win and lose shows who we are, our attitude towards others who compete and how we show ourselves as Khmer because we represent the Khmer people!”. These words have inspired me to do my very best every time I compete.
    I really want all Cambodian people to know what the sport is.

    Khom Ratanakmony

    judo fighter


    The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia was buzzing with excitement this morning after receiving news that judoka Khom Ratanakmony had been granted a Tripartite Commission Invitation Place to the 2012 Summer Olympics.

    The 29-year-old SEA Games silver medalist, who is based in the French northwestern port city of Brest, became the second Cambodian to be handed a ticket to London by the International Olympic Committee’s Tripartite Commission after taekwondo ace Sorn Davin.

    .

    ,

    Khom Ratanakmony grabbed a silver medal at the 2011 SEA Games held in Indonesia last November thanks to an impressive run in the men’s 50-55 kilogram judo competition.

    He lost the gold medal final match against host nation favourite Toni Iravan at the Kelapa Gading Judo Center in Jakarta.

    Ratanakmony, who started out as a wrestler before switching codes to the Japanese martial art of judo, will continue to train in France before joining up with the rest of the Cambodian delegation in London on July 23.
