Remember, though, that the Cambodian government formally refused the organisers permission for the contest to go ahead and banned all the women from travelling to Phnom Penh to take part.
So Yeu is 37 years old and has three children. She lost her leg to a People's Republic of China manufactured landmine in 1991.
She has ambitions of raising cattle and fish.
Thou Chorn is 32 years old and single. She lost both her legs to a Russian produced landmine in 1998.
Currently she works from home selling cakes but her real ambition is to have a steady job.
Dos Sopheap is an 18 year old student who has ambitions to qualify as an accountant. In 1996 she lost her leg to a landmine that had been manufactured in what was previously Yugoslavia.
First prize was a custom-made prosthetic leg, worth approx USD 20 000 and $500, which Sopheap plans to use to further her studies. The second and third place-getters received $300 each. Both women plan to put this money into starting a business. Wish them luck!
