The stranded athletes, some of whom say they have been living in Kenya for more than a year, are seeking help evacuating their homes in Vientiane, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

He said he sent Laotian athlete Lodkeo Inthakoumman, who is also a police officer, to check on Chepkwony. It's the athletes who need professional advice, "said Kigen, who competed in the Nong Khai Marathon in Thailand.
Unfortunately, there are not many open groups, but it is possible to find partners on the Facebook page of Vientiane Sports & Fitness.

The team also participated in several tournaments in Laos and Thailand and met at the World Indoor Championships, the Asian Games and the London Olympics.
While Thai kickboxing and Muay Thai are known worldwide, far fewer people are aware that derivatives of these sports are widespread in Indochina, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar. The subsequent events of the Southeast Asian Games have a sizeable following in Southeast Asia, but the fact is that only one of them has been provisionally recognized as an Olympic sport. Olympic sport, and the team has travelled to Thailand to take part in rugby and is recognised as one of the most popular sports in the country, alongside football, basketball and rugby union.
If you want to get the people of Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar to fight, you only have to ask where they came from for Southeast Asian-style kickboxing. Various kickboxing skills are believed to have developed in the region as different tribes migrated to mainland Southeast Asia, which is controversial in some countries, while others claim that kickboxing was originally conceived in Cambodia. While the name "Muay Thai" has been used several times on the mainland of Southeast Asia, not everyone is happy to compete under the names "Muay" and "Thai." The idea that Muay Lao is identical to "Muay Thai" originates in Indochina, with some claiming that it originates from Thailand and Laos and others from Myanmar, while others claim that it was "invented" in Cambodia.
Although this popular martial art in Vietnam has not a long history compared to the others on this list, Vovinam is a popular sport in the country, as it was founded in Vietnam.
The martial art was introduced at the SEA Games in Jakarta and Palembang in 2011 and returned during the SEA Games 2013 in Naypyidaw, Myanmar. Billiards was represented at the 25th edition of the Southeast Asian Games, which were held in Vientiane, the capital of Laos, in December 2009.
Next year, the Lao Amateur Athletics Federation will support the 11th National Games, which will be hosted by Xieng Khuang Province. Three Laotian athletes have been selected by wildcard for the athletics and swimming teams, all of which have qualified. The Lao athletics team will consist of four athletes from the national team, two from each of the three provinces competing in the SEA Games in Naypyidaw, Myanmar in August and September 2014.
Pha Luang is the most important Buddhist monument of Laos and is called the Great Stupa or Golden Stupsa. It is located on a small road called Phai Nam and locals say it has been around for a few hundred years. The Phas Lueng, a gold-covered, 1.50 metre high, 3 metre high, 2 metre wide, 5 kilometre long, 4 metre deep, 6 tonne bronze and gold-covered StUPA, is one of the most important religious monuments in Laos, which also serves as a religious centre for religious ceremonies such as weddings, funerals, weddings of saints and memorials as well as religious gatherings.
The name is even a combination of the Malaysian word sepak, which means "kick," and the Thai word takraw, which refers to the woven ball used in the game. The match starts with a serve and a kick, and each side is allowed three shots from the same volley before it is put into the net by the other team. Sepak tackraw is played at various venues such as gym, tennis court, volleyball hall and basketball court.
This is where much of the power of a kickboxer is generated, and that sets it apart from other martial arts. Although the word also refers to the bullets used in badminton, I find the badminton puzzling and is the official name chosen for the sport. I prefer to call the game "Footbath Minton" because you can immediately imagine how it works.
The Khmer influence on the people of Laos is strongest in the south, but Myanmar and Thai influences are easily discernible in the north. Silat is one of the various martial arts that have been developed in the area known today as the area. Sepak Takraw was influenced by the combination of two different martial arts: Sepa Takaw, in Thai "Takraw," and Sepat, the "Silat" of Cambodia.
