  1. World Archery proposes compound for the 2028 Olympic Games 

     

     

    Compound is officially being considered for inclusion alongside the current recurve events on the sports programme of the LA28 Olympic Games.

     

    The proposal from World Archery is for an additional indoor archery competition for men, women and mixed teams that would last approximately three days, shorter than the current nine-day Olympic schedule.

     

    Competing over 18 metres and indoors, in comparison to the 70-metre outdoor recurve format, would clearly differentiate the two events while building on the successful professional indoor archery circuit that is already well-established in the USA, the host nation of the next Games after Paris 2024.

    Yes there are live streams on the official Youtube channel or just type the Vietnamese phrase “SEA Games 31 truc tiep” on the search box

     

    But the website is quite awful in term of results, I don’t think it will be informative nor having the real time result update

    I find following the Games on Wikipedia a better alternative to the hard to follow results section of the official website.

  3. Singapore bidding to host the 2025 World Athletics Championships 

     

    Sport Singapore has officially announced the country’s bid to stage the World Athletics Championships in 2025.

     

    The national sports agency has confirmed that Singapore is aiming to become the first Southeast Asian country to host World Athletics’ flagship event.

     

    The 2025 edition will also mark Singapore’s 60th year of independence with Sport Singapore claiming it "would be a fitting addition to the nation’s celebrations".

     

    Sport Singapore has revealed that it will partner with Singapore-based Malaysian billionaire businessman Ong Beng Seng to help turn its bid into reality.

    Basketball player Brittney Griner reportedly detained in Russia; WNBA, representatives working 'to get her home'

     

     

    WNBA player Brittney Griner is being detained in Russia after customs officials said they found hashish oil in her luggage at an airport near Moscow in February, according to a report in the New York Times on Saturday.

     

    The Russian Federal Customs Service on Saturday alleged it searched luggage believed to belong to Griner and found vape cartridges that contained oil derived from cannabis -- a crime that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. While Griner was not mentioned by name, the customs service identified the detained person as a player for the U.S. women's team but did not specify the date of her detainment.

  6. Winter Olympics: Valieva failed drug test confirmed

     

    The International Testing Agency has confirmed teenage Russian Olympic Committee figure skater Kamila Valieva failed a drugs test in December.

     

    The 15-year-old was part of the team which claimed figure skating gold on Monday but the medals were not awarded because of a "legal issue".

     

    The Russian Anti-doping Agency lifted her suspension, enabling her to compete at the Beijing Winter Olympics.

    But the International Olympic Committee has now appealed against that decision.
