The National Paralympic Committee of Cambodia has prepared athletes in 11 sports disciplines for the 11th ASEAN Paralympic Games 2022 in Solo city, Indonesia.

The 11 sports disciplines include athletics, swimming, men’s and women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s wheelchair basketball, blind basketball, seven-a-side football, table tennis, badminton, weightlifting, chess and boccia.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen and Chairman of the National Paralympic Committee of Cambodia have exclusively sponsored all Cambodian sports athletes to join the 2022 ASEAN Paralympic Games.

According to the secretary-general, Indonesia volunteered to take on the role of host of the 11th ASEAN Paralympic Games after Vietnam decided to drop it.

As planned, the games will take place from July 30 to August 6, featuring 14 sports disciplines, and more than 2,000 athletes, delegates and coaches from across the region are expected to join the event.
