In the history of the SEA Games, most of the games did not have all the subjects and contents competing at the Olympics. This often brings some disagreements because the host often just wants to organize strong sports, cut many sets of opponent’s medals to ensure the top position of the whole team.
Remember, at the 27th SEA Games organized by Myanmar, up to 30% of the competitions have local and regional characteristics, many Olympic sports and contents were removed, bringing a lot of grievances. Recently, the host country of the 32nd SEA Games, Cambodia, has also removed the names of two Olympic sports, shooting and archery. The Southeast Asian Sports Federation is trying to intervene to solve this problem.
Unlike other congresses, the organizing committee (BTC) of the 31st SEA Games is committed to making efforts to organize many Olympic sports, even though it is not a strong sport of Vietnam. Among the 40 sports at SEA Games 31, most of them are in the Olympic system such as swimming, shooting, archery, cycling, boxing, gymnastics, fencing… The Vietnamese delegation faces difficulties, but it will be an opportunity for athletes to improve their skills and head to big arenas such as ASIAD and the Olympics.
Host Vietnam prioritizes the organization of Olympic sports
Deputy Director General in charge of the General Department of Sports and Sports Tran Duc Phan shared: “In previous congresses, many Olympic sports were eliminated by the host country because it was not a strength. But this year, we determined the organization. the fairest 31st SEA Games, must organize all Olympic sports.This has received much support.Every year, when attending the delegation meetings, many people have “argued” because of disagreements. in choosing the subject of organization, but this year there is absolutely no. That is the great effort of the BTC. There will be many difficulties and shortcomings, but I hope everyone will support and join hands to have the great event. successful association.
Vietnam will take the lead in directing not to win a medal at all costs, that is, not to use any techniques that affect the organization of the match, including the refereeing work.
