Sports list announced for 27th SEA Games

The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia has received a list of 36 sports from the 27th SEA Games Organising Committee in Myanmar that is set to make up the general competition schedule for the tournament, which gets under way on December 11.

Confirmed disciplines include athletics, diving, swimming, water polo, archery, basketball, badminton, billiards and snooker, boxing, canoeing, cycling, equestrianism, football, futsal, golf, hockey, judo, karate, rowing, sepak takraw, traditional chinlone (cane ball), shooting, sailing, table tennis, taekwondo, volleyball, weightlifting, wrestling, wushu, body building, traditional boat racing, chess, pencak silat, vovinam, petanque, muay thai and kempo.

The cities of Yangon, Naypyidaw and Mandalay will host the events. The exclusion of tennis appears to be at odds with the technical director of Myanmar Tennis, Robert Davis, who told the Tennis Federation of Cambodia that they planned to hold a few categories, albeit a reduced schedule to previous editions, during this year’s SEA Games.

Myanmar will also be hosting Davis Cup Asia/Oceania Zone Group III and IV competitions between April 22 and May 5.
