(KPL) Lao national boxers training for the 25th SEA Games 2009 would be going for a training stint in Thailand and then go to Vietnam for the Indoor Games 2009. With all the preparations the coach of the boxing team said he expected them to bag four gold medals from the SEA Games.

As the 25th SEA Games will be held in just about three months many local sports bodies here, including the Lao National Boxing Federation are doing all they can to get their athletes in top condition.

The General Secretary of the Lao National Boxing Federation, Mr Phonekeo Chomsy told reporters on Sunday that the Lao Olympic Committee received grant aids from the Olympic Committee of Thailand to fund the expenses of the 14 national boxers of Laos when they train for nearly three weeks in September.

According to the national coach, Mr Kampanath Kounlavong, Laos has a good track record in boxing and this is clearly seen in the country bagging one gold, three silver and four bronze medals from the 24th SEA Games in Korat, Thailand in 2007.
