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.

Cambodia will host the SEA Games this May and 12th ASEAN Para Games in June. Both games are combined and called “Cambodia 2023” to reflect unity, diversity, and equality.
