Action from Monday's Cambodia v Germany volleyball match
Rain stopped play. A leaky roof held up the disabled volleyball World Cup
tonight at the Olympic Stadium when the presence of a bucket on the indoor volleyball court signalled a problem before the Cambodia v Slovakia match could begin at 6pm. I waited an hour for the drips from the ceiling to subside but they didn't so I left the indoor arena, annoyed that the organisers hadn't foreseen this problem before the WOVD competition began. Anyone who has played on the court during the current rainy season will have been aware of the leaky roof, so my question is why weren't the WOVD organisers and why didn't they fix the problem before this prestigious event began. Frankly, its embarrassing that this important game between two of the fancied teams was so badly affected. It had promised to be a tight game between two evenly-matched teams and I was prepared to play my part with another flag-waving session, but to no avail. Black mark for the competition officials, especially as thousands were tuned into the live television coverage on Bayon TV. One of them was Prime Minister Hun Sen who immediately ordered local authorities to fix the problem.
