The Southeast Asian Games owes its origins to the Southeast Asian Peninsular Games or SEAP Games. On 22 May 1958, delegates from the countries in Southeast Asian peninsula attending the 3rd Asian Games in Tokyo, Japan had a meeting and agreed to establish a sport organization.

Thailand, Burma (now Myanmar), Malaya (now Malaysia), Laos, South Vietnam  and Cambodia (with Singapore included thereafter) were the founding members. These countries agreed to hold the Games biannually. The SEAP Games Federation Committee was formed.

The first SEAP Games were held in Bangkok from 12–17 December 1959 comprising more than 527 athletes and officials from Thailand, Burma, Malaya (now Malaysia), Singapore, South Vietnam and Laos participating in 12 sports.

The last game held was the 2009 Southeast Asian Games (running from 9–18 December) which was the first time Laos has ever held a Southeast Asian Games. It has also commemorated the 50 years of the SEA Games, held in Vientiane, Laos. The next host for the 2011 Southeast Asian Games is Indonesia.

Indonesia Aims to Succeed at the 26 th SEA Games

COUNTRIES

 


Indonesia has every reason to succeed at the 26 th edition of the Southeast Asian Games slated Nov, 11-25. Hosting the Games in 1997, Indonesia came away with the outstanding achievement of winning 194 gold medals, 101 silvers and 115 bronzes. That was the last time Indonesia topped the medal standings before showing a continuously disappointing performance, at least until 2007.

Having improved its ranking from fifth place in the 2005 Games in Manila to third in the 2009 Games , Indonesia hopes to bring back its old time glory in the upcoming event to be held in Palembang and Jakarta. “The SEA Games will be a milestone of the awakening of our sports. Let’s work together to win back what we used to have, the overall champion title,” said Rita Subowo, Chairwoman of the Indonesia SEA Games Organizing Committee (Inasoc).


Indonesia's road to redemption was started with selecting the events that Indonesia feels they are competitive.


For that, the Indonesia SEA Games Organizing Committee (Inasoc) will propose a list of 536 events in 43 sports for approval to the other ten participating countries during a two-day SEA Games Council Meeting in Bali, Feb.25-26.


If approved, the Games is believed to be the biggest ever since 1997, when 490 events were held in Jakarta.


Palembang, the main hub, and Jakarta will each host 22 sports, with men’s football matches to be split between both cities. Indonesia must win more than 30 percents or roughly 160 gold medals to ensure a first place finish .


The Games is also hoped to help boost both cities economy through trade and tourism.


Sports to be played in Jakarta : archery, badminton, basketball, bowling, canoeing, cycling, dragon boat, equestrian, golf, fencing, judo, football, futsal, karate, kempo, paragliding, pencak silat, sailing, table tennis, taekwondo, vovinam, wushu.


Sports to be played in Palembang : athletics, aquatic (diving, swimming, synchronized swimming, water polo), baseball, boxing, bridge, fin swimming, football, gymnastic (artistic, ritmic, aerobic), petanque, roller skate, sepaktakraw, softball, shooting, volleyball (indoor and beach), wall climbing, water ski.

Palembang. High-ranking government officials defended local Southeast Asian Games organizers here, saying there was still time to remedy delays in the construction of Games facilities.

Amid fears that the South Sumatra administration was behind schedule, Vice President Boediono concluded Friday’s inspection of SEA Games construction projects still confident they would be finished on time.

Should Palembang fail to deliver, however, Boediono said the national government was ready to step in and offer alternatives to prevent “a Commonwealth Games type scenario from happening”— referring to the controversy-ridden Games held in India last year.

“We have this plan already and if the delays persist we will take action. Still, we will not make drastic changes at this point,” Boediono said on Saturday.

Youth and Sports Affairs Minister Andi Mallarangeng said he was open to transferring events from Palembang to Jakarta, and revealed that he had been instructed to monitor developments “closely.”

A team from the Ministry of Public Works has also been assigned to share technical expertise in Palembang.

“The vice president wants us to work with the Ministry of Public Works and the Palembang city government and make sure all steps are taken to ensure preparations for the SEA Games will run smoothly,” Andi said on Friday.

According to Andi, Boediono said he didn’t want the country to commit the same mistakes made by Indian authorities, who were criticized for a below-par running of the Commonwealth Games last October.

“We were reminded of the lessons that we need to learn from India’s hosting of the Games, which got a lot of media attention,” Andi said. “We don’t want that to happen to us.”
