Southeast Asian Games 2019

Oh, when I looked up the games yesterday when looking for some news and interviews every single story was the organizing committee defending the cost of the cauldron, the stadiums, and athletes complaining about a lack of funds (the media made the games look like quite the farce to be honest). 

Of course the media will always blow up the sensational news. But hey we don't even know the price of Asian Games cauldron, it is actually good to see some transparency.

 

Honestly the Games is expected to be minimalist since Philippines decided to host again after their withdrawal. However what they did is very confusing. They have the biggest sports program ever and now spending big on unrelated stuff. It's like serving a bad quality meat on the most expensive plate ever :lol

Exactly what I’ve been thinking. Hey were too poor to host right now, but if you give us the green light for lavish spending we can make happen :mumble:

Here’s the the ever-present scourge of multi-sports games; the less than ideal results system: https://rs.2019seagames.com/RS2019/GamesSchedule

Just found out Short Track is back on the program (or at least the results system says it is) :clap::thumbup:

I think construction will be finished in time, but these are very worrying pictures a few days out from the games :yikes:. I’m not sure as to the validity of reporting, but from my understanding Rappler is a good source. https://www.rappler.com/sports/specials/sea-games/245619-rizal-memorial-under-construction-before-2019

Hello. I'm new here. How did you find the results system? I can't access it through the SEA Games homepage. Thanks

It’s under the schedule tab (or at least it was). You can find it at that link too. :yes

 

Also welcome to forum! Always nice to gain a new member. By your username, I would imagine you’re very excited for these games :p

They are reliable (the Indonesian version is also quite popular too).

 

Don't worry about the venues, I think they can't be worse than us in 2011, where all venues finished exactly a day before the opening ;)

If it were Indonesia I would have suspected foul play, but I’d imagine this is just a sad mistake.
