Sports in Cambodia

Hello everyone,

The Olympic Games are now just a few days away and we would like to talk about sports.

What sports are the most popular and/or unusual in Cambodia?

Are sports facilities easily accessible there? Where and how can one find sports clubs in the region?

Are there sports events regularly held in the country?

And you? What is your favourite sport? Which one(s) do you practice in Cambodia?

Thank you in advance,


The sporting infrastructure is not very good though that is changing with more fitness studios, football pitches and the like; at least in the cities.

I like running and whilst not very popular, there are some great events: Angkor Empire Marathon in Siem Reap next Sunday, the Angkor Half Marathon in December, the Bokor Half in October and a couple more.
