17 national karate delegates, coaches and athletes left Cambodia to take part in the WKF Championships Series A 2022 in Indonesia.
National karate coach Heng Pheng said that the Karate event in Indonesia is very important as there will be many countries taking part in this international karate event.
It will be a great challenge for the national karate athletes to compete at high level to gain more experience ahead of the 32nd South East Asian (SEA) Games in Cambodia in 2023.
Prior to the WKF Championships Series A 2022, the national karate athletes had a 3-month training camp in Japan.
“Our target at SEA Games 2023 is winning around 4 gold medals, so we are pushing hard to achieve our goal,” said Pheng.
“Our karate athletes had a 3-month training camp in Japan, and they show us good progress.
“We are looking forward to the WKF Championships Series A 2022, where they will face many tough opponents. With this experience, we hope our national karate athletes can make a huge improvement ahead of SEA Games 2023.”
Pheng said that the national karate athletes are set to take part in several more events such as Asian and Southeast Asian levels as parts of their SEA Games 2023 preparation.
With experience they will get at the international karate events, the national karate athletes are expected to make a huge improvement and get ready for SEA Games 2023.
