Phnom Penh – Two Cambodians representing their country at the recent Asian Games in Indonesia brought home three medals in a marked improvement on past years’ performances.
Cambodian-American Jessa Khan, 16, won a gold medal in the Ju-Jitsu competition while Ou Moeut Saly also claimed gold and a bronze in the Jet Ski event.
Arriving at Phnom Penh International Airport on Monday last week the pair were given a hero’s welcome and met with a guard of honor which escorted them to the Peace Palace, where they were greeted by Prime Minister Hun Sen and other senior officials.
