Postponed SEA Games scheduled to resume in May 2022


The XXXI SEA Games, postponed amidst the COVID-19 pandemic surge, is scheduled to resume in May 2022, said officials from the SEA Games organizing committee.
Vietnam’s Olympic Committee has previously scheduled for the SEA Games to be held in late April but plans to do so in May, taking into account the pandemic conditions.
The Vietnam Olympic Committee is expected to approve fixtures for the SEA Games later this month, with several other international sports events to be held next year, including the Asian Games.
Vietnam SEA Games Organizing Committee will not change the sports categories to be included in the tourney and will include 40 sports as previously scheduled.
Myanmar plans to compete in 18 sports, most of which are already prepared.
In addition, some Myanmar sports teams are training abroad.
The SEA Games have been held regularly every two years since 1959, and the XXXI SEA Games will be the first postponed event in the competition’s history. — Ko Nyi Lay/GNLM
