Siem Reap (FN), Aug. 4 - A Romanian marathoner has been amazed at the development of all sectors in Cambodia, speaking on the occasion of the 6th Khmer Empire Marathon in the morning of 4 August 2019 in front of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap.

Chris expressed his delight and pride to attend this marathon.

“My name is Christ. I was born in Romania. I am very happy to be in Siem Reap. I think Cambodia and Cambodian Events Organizer Team has done a good job organizing this adventure marathon. I hope that there can be more marathons in Battambang and in Phnom Penh,” he said.

The opening of the 42-kilometer international event, started with a torch, began at 4:30 am. It was presided over by Dr. Thong Khon, Minister of Tourism and chairman of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC); Hang Pov, director-general of Apsara, and deputy governor of Siem Reap, and attended by 3,500 national and international athletes, including 1,600 foreigners from 50 countries, an increase of 15% compared to 2018.

The 42-km marathon also includes a 21-km half-marathon, 10-km, and a 3-km Family Fun Run. The 24th Angkor International Half Marathon will take place on Sunday, 8 December 2019 in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
