29 participants carefully selected by Cambodia Triathlon Federation took part in the one and half a day seminar to learn about ITU competition rules and Event Organizers Manual to organize and operate triathlon events from Melody Tan, ITU facilitator from Malaysia.

Melody Tan expressed her deep appreciation to Cambodia Triathlon Federation for all their efforts and support to make the seminar possible. “I am so happy to have this opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with candidates mostly from other sports. I hope the participants will share what they learnt here with their friends and colleagues who are interested in our sport and implement their skills to have safe and fair events in this country.” Said Melody. 

Participants expressed their satisfaction to learn about triathlon in an enjoyable seminar mood and thanked Melody who made the seminar interactive by showing many videos and inviting questions and feedback from participants.

Mr. Kong Rithy Chup, President of Cambodian Triathlon Federation, mentioned at the opening of the seminar that he really appreciates ITU and ASTC for the support to have the seminar. And he said that the seminar will put a huge impact on their technical officials’ development. To enhance triathlon development further in Cambodia, he requests for continuous support and assistance from ASTC and ITU.
