  1. Tokyo 2020 Asia and Oceania boxing qualifier moved to Amman after virus outbreak
  2. 2020 Asian Olympic qualifying tournament in Wuhan, China has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The IOC will announce a new competition host and schedule once a decision has been made. Olympic boxing qualifiers in China cancelled due to virus outbreak
  3. There will be presidential and legislative elections in the Republic of China aka Taiwan too. On January 11.
  4. I suspect India will be bringing back the pairs events as an opportunity to boost their medal tally at the 2022 Games.
  5. From this article, it looks like there was a difference of opinion between the FIG representative and the interpretation of the technical handbook on whether or not to award two gold medals. Gymnastics: Malaysia’s chef de mission lodges official complaint over decision to strip Izzah’s gold medal in ribbon event | The Star Online
  6. I think what happened is that the technical handbook included rules to break ties during the qualification stage. But there were no rules about breaking ties during the finals. So the Malaysians had a reason to feel aggrieved
  7. It looks like the organisers changed their minds and decided to make women’s breaking a medal event even though there were only two athletes entered. Same with water polo for women. Initially, they weren’t going to award bronze medals because there were only three teams entered but now the official website shows the bronze medals awarded to the Philippines. Canoeing. I’m confused with what’s showing on the official website as well. It seems like there were six events held instead of seven. Looks like the kayak singles got cancelled.
  8. They've reinstated the gold medal after the Malaysians appealed to the organizing committee. Gymnastics: M'sia's Izzah has gold medal reinstated in ribbon event in SEA Games | The Star Online
  9. Agree. It’s a great story. Sadly, it was ignored by the local media
  10. Why do I get the feeling the official website is still a work in progress even though the Games are at the halfway point?
  11. Up until the 1980 Summer Olympics, they used to hold swimming and diving simultaneously at the same venue.
  12. Singapore wins the first two gold medals in the debut of underwater hockey SEA Games: Singapore win first two golds in underwater hockey debut, Sport News & Top Stories - The Straits Times
  13. The swimming competition has finally begun.
  14. Forgive them for they know not what they do.
  15. The Games website has been practically inaccessible the whole day. And a complete list of results are hard to come by.
  16. They included Arnis with 20 events and Dance Sport with 13 events so that the host country can jack up their medal haul. It’s the usual trick the host country pulls at the Southeast Asian Games.
  17. The Philippines win their first medals of the Games with a 1-2 finish in the men’s triathlon.
  18. Actually PTV not winning the rights here wasn’t a big deal. They haven’t really covered sports in recent years and there’s nothing worth watching on that channel anyway except for the daily lottery draws. We’ll probably be able to watch the Games here on four sports channels - two belonging to TV5 and two belonging to ABS-CBN
  19. These Games will really be a disaster if the President comes late to the opening ceremonies and/or delivers a rambling speech to the athletes before he declares the Games open.
  20. I watched the live swimming competitions at the last two Southeast Asian Games on a Singapore Youtube channel. Don't know if it will still be available this year
  21. The Games are being broadcast on all our major TV channels. For maximum exposure I guess
