Myanmar sports team to compete in SEA Games, Asian Games


Myanmar sports teams will compete in two international tourneys including the Southeast Asian and Asian Games this year.
The SEA Games, the highest sporting event in Southeast Asia, has been rescheduled for this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the SEA Games and the Asian Games will be held for the first time in 2022 amidst the COVID-19.
The 31st SEA Games, postponed by the epidemic, will be held in Vietnam from 12 to 23 May, and the 19th Asian Games will be held in Hangzhou, China from 10 to 25 September.
The 31st SEA Games will feature 40 sports, and the Myanmar team has previously planned to compete in 18 sports but is working to add more sports.
Myanmar sports teams have been training since the beginning of last year, and some sports teams are on overseas training trips.
The Asian Games will feature 40 sports but no sport has been selected yet by Myanmar teams.
The SEA Games are held every two years and the Asian Games are held every four years.
The Myanmar teams won four gold medals, 18 silver and 52 bronze medals in the last Philippine Games in 2019 and two bronze medals in the 2018 Asian Games. — Ko Nyi Lay /GNLM
