Phnom Penh, December 08, 2023 --

Cambodia is hosting the SEA Wrestling Championship 2023 at the National Olympic Stadium from Dec. 6 to 9, 2023.

According to Mr. Casey Barnett, Vice President of the Wrestling Federation of Cambodia (WFC), Cambodia has hosted the SEA Wrestling Championship for two consecutive years, in 2022 and 2023, and SEA countries appreciate Cambodia for its well-organised hosting.

The SEA Wrestling Championship 2023 will help sharpen the capacity of Cambodian athletes for two up-coming international events, including the 33rd SEA Games 2025 in Thailand and the 5th Asian Youth Games to be hosted by Cambodia in 2029.

The tournament attracts the participation of 276 wrestlers from Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Singapore, the Philippines, and Indonesia, and representatives of the International Wrestling Federation will also join the event.

The championship will include three disciplines: U17 years old, U20 years old, and over 20 years old contests.

In 2022, Cambodia won 19 medals for such international sports at the SEA Wrestling Championship 2022, hosted by Cambodia.
