Cameroonian Sambo athlete fondly called Bob Sim died on June 25, after receiving a kick during a training session in Yaounde.
Bob Sim was involved in a test match with his team, in a training camp at the Camair neighborhood in preparation for the African Sambo Championship,slated for July 16 to 17, when the unfortunate ordeal that led to his demise took place.
The young athlete was rapidly rushed to the Yaounde Central Hospital, where the latter gave up the ghost after a short while.
Bob is described as a devoted and hard working Sambo athlete. With a strong desire to defend his nation’s colours. His team mates are yet to believe he’s not to be seen again, after his remains was deposited at the mortuary of the Central Hospital pending burial arrangements.
The Sambo Federation is one of those rare federations, yet to receive a favourable treatment from the Cameroonian sports authorities, despite their numerous participation in international events.
