Late yesterday night, Myanmar announced its first confirmed cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). It was previously the world’s largest country by population not to report a single case of the pandemic. At World Lethwei Championship, our priority has always been health and safety, hence the decision to postpone scheduled for April 3 WLC: Khmer Kingdom a month ago. We are still committed to hosting an event in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and we look forward to treating our fans in Cambodia to a night of culture and entertainment.
This is not an ideal time for any organisation, sporting or otherwise, but adversity creates opportunity. I urge all business owners to take the down time to innovate, and even though this will not be the best year economically, we can still change the world by making what we do better.
