Beauty and the beast

The lovely Meas Soksophea next to what looks like a drowned rat. My excuse - heavy rain!
Despite a thunderous downpour that threatened to wash out the afternoon's proceedings, the National Girls U-15 football festival was a roaring success in every way at the Army Stadium yesterday. Not only did 150 girls from all over the country have a great time playing football to the best of their ability, but they also got to rub shoulders with the country's biggest female singing star Meas Soksophea, hear her sing and dance on stage and then get their medals presented by her too. For them it doesn't get much better than this. The twinkle in their eyes when they got up close to her was as big a reward as their medal. Though her on-stage performance was held up by the deluge, the darling of the crowd is a seasoned trooper and waited her time before the rain ceased and she performed twice, either side of the festival final, which the Mighty Girls from Battambang deservedly won. Also on hand was CTN's popular MC Khieu Sansana, another crowd favourite. Both star guests mingled freely with the girls and refused no request for photos throughout the afternoon.
