Cambodia on Saturday organized an event of Women and Sport Day Run in Phnom Penh to commemorate former Cambodian sportswomen and their achievements.

"This is the first time and a historic day for former Cambodian sportswomen and the event today is very important for making friendship and solidarity among sport people," Thong Khon, President of National Olympic Committee of Cambodia and Minister of Tourism, told participants.

The Cambodian government is trying to encourage and promote women to participate and help develop the sport field, he said.

The event was attended by nearly 500 women runners including foreigners, said Hem Thon Vithiny, a national swimmer who won the group for youth in the run.

"I am very happy to get some gifts and know our old sports people," she said.

Madam Chhit Sokuntheary won the group of old people in the Women and Sport Day Run.
