Sar Sith, undersecretary of state at the Ministry of Interior, has stepped up to a new challenge – spearheading the General Secretariat of the Sports Council.
He is now preparing to lead a team of 48 sports delegates from the ministry to a globally-renowned event in Canada, set to run from July 28 to August 6.
In a recent announcement, the ministry detailed that Sith held a successful strategy meeting on July 20, where he sat down with minister Sar Kheng, as well as the dedicated coaches and athletes of the Sports Council, who are poised to compete in the 20th World Police and Fire Games 2023 in Canada.
Sith said that the World Police and Fire Games offer an international platform for police forces to demonstrate their unity, capability and talent. With over 70 countries sending their sports delegations to each event, Cambodia is set to make its third appearance in the event’s 20-year history.
This year, the Kingdom’s athletes will put their skills to the test in an exciting array of 13 events.
They will be showcasing their talent in badminton, weightlifting, judo, jiu-jitsu, karate, swimming, table tennis, indoor volleyball, beach volleyball, wrestling, arm-wrestling, golf, bench press and push-pull lifting.
