40 sports disputed in Jakarta SEA Games

By Eddie Alinea
05 Jun 2010

Forty sports, 15 more than those contested last year in Laos, have been initially approved by the Southeast Asian Games Federation to be included in the calendar of events to be disputed in the 26th edition of the biennial conclave next year in Jakarta.

This was reported yesterday by athletics president Go Teng Kok, who represented the Philippine Olympic Committee in the SEA Games Federation meeting held May 29 in Jakarta during the SCOOP Sa Kamayan weekly session at the Kamayan Restaurant-Padre Faura.
“There actually 42 sports that was recommended and approved by the assembly, but futsal was placed under football and soft tennis under lawn tennis, thus reducing the number to 40,” the controversial sports leader said during the public service form.
As in the past Games, disciplines to be contested have been categorized into three – compulsory sports athletics and swimming under Category I, other sports played in the Olympic Games and Asian Games under Category II, those not played in the Olympics and Asiad under Category III and those indigenous events but played in several countries in the region.
Bodybuilding, which was listed under Category III, was also approved for inclusion although on condition that all the cases brought to the Federation for settlement because of rampant drug abuses perpetrated by many athletes.

“In other words, body building can only be officially included upon positive reports on the investigations that are on-going,” Go said, adding that the total number of sports can still be increased as host Indonesia intimated it wants as many sports as possible,” he said.
“This is expected because, you know, the SEA Games, as it has been, is more on friendship that actual competition. That’s why member countries have always given in to what the host of a particular edition for as along as it (host) can afford it,” he explained.
Besides athletics and swimming in Category I, sports played both in the Olympics and Asian Games under Category II are archery, badminton, baseball, basketball, billiards and snooker, bowling, boxing, canoeing, cycling, equestrian, fencing, football, gymnastics, judo, karatedo, rowing, sailing, sepak takraw, softball, soft tennis, shooting, taekwondo, table tennis lawn tennis, volleyball, weightlifting, wrestling and wushu.
Baseball and softball, sports the Filipinos have been dominating have been reinstated along with soft tennis.
Besides bodybuilding, other sports under Category III are chess, fin swimming, kempo, pencat silat, traditional boat race, water skiing, petanque, muay and arnis.
Approval on the proposal to include, too, bridge, wall-climbing, roller skating and paragliding, according to Go was held in abeyance until the next meeting in November.

Driven by the experience the last time the Games was held in the Philippines five years ago, the Federation also accepted host Indonesia’s proposal to spread the sports to be disputed in several parts of the country – Jakarta, Bandung in West Java, Semarang in Central Java, and Palembang in South Sumatera.
For the first time in the Games’ history, compulsory sports athletics and aquatics will not be played in the same venue. Running, throwing and jumping events will be held in Palembang, while swimming, and diving will be contested in Bandung
Only pencat silat, a martial arts sport originated and very popular in Indonesia, badminton, sailing, fencing, football, tennis, futsal, judo, basketball, table tennis, kempo, track events in cycling, wushu, karatedo and bowling are scheduled to be competed in the premier city of Jakarta.

Cycling’s road race, softball, baseball, taekwondo, equestrian, chess, rowing, traditional boat race, canoeing, volleyball and paragliding will be held in Bandung along with aquatics.
Also to be held in Palembang, besides athletics, are football, wrestling, gymnastics, weightlifting, bodybuilding, fin swimming, water ski, water polo, sychronze swimming, shooting and wall climbing, while archery, billiards and snooker, sepak takraw, boxing, soft tennis, bridge and roller skate will be held in Semarang.
