Cambodia will host the world disabled volleyball in 2011
Disabled volleyball will be on the menu again midway through next year, as Cambodia will once again host the World Volleyball for Disabled competition, in July 23-30, 2011. They have hosted it twice already, the last time in 2009 when Cambodia finished 4th. This time around Germany, Slovakia, Poland, Malaysia, India and hosts Cambodia may be joined by USA, Vietnam and Rwanda. It's always an exciting event to watch these talented individuals giving their all. Talking of sports, the Asian Games have come to a close in Guangzhou, China and unfortunately Cambodia's atheletes failed to get on the medal board. China topped the medal table with 199 golds, for the 8th successive games. Thirty-six out of the 45 participating countries medaled in the 16-day competition.
A reminder that the Tini Tinou circus will be in town on Sunday and Monday before moving up to Battambang. The fun starts on Saturday night in Phnom Penh with a parade through the city streets and then shows at Chaktomuk and the French Cultural Center on successive nights. Did you hear that those wonderful circus folks at Phare Ponleu Selpak in Battambang are adding Monday nights to their weekly schedule from 1 January? Great news for visitors to Battambang as they can now see the shows on Monday and Thursday nights. And I must insist that you get along to the National Museum in Phnom Penh on any Thursday evening to enjoy the Children of Bassac performances throughout the high season. This is a must-see.
Whilst I enjoy a good photo like the next man, I haven't really got into the Photo Phnom Penh event that has kicked off in the city this week. Lots of exhibitions, events and stuff going on with local and international photographers and if you want to find out more, click here.
