Aussie continues work in Cambodia

Posted by devo on August 1, 2009

Secretary general of CNVL(D), Australian-born Christopher Minko, revealed that the league is in its ninth season, and unlike the able-bodied sports in Cambodia that are still trying to find their feet, disabled sports are already flying.

The Cambodian National disabled volleyball team is currently ranked third in the world, with the majority of squad members chosen from previous CNVL(D) meetings. “Cambodia is number one in Asia-Pacific, and third in the world behind Germany and Slovakia,” Minko said. “We are hoping to push on until we reach the number one spot.”

The 52-year-old Australian, who has been in Cambodia for 16 years developing disabled volleyball, is confident that local players can attain an extremely high standard of playing by competing in the CNVL(D). “These players are very good,” Minko asserted. “They are not handicapped by their disabilities. They put in their best and are doing great.” more@Phnom Penh Post
