Korat Sea Games

Yes, it is official now. Malaysia ended our campaign at Korat with 68 Golds, 52 Silver and 96 Bronze to finish number 2 on the Medal Tally for the 24th Korat Sea Games. This is definitely our 2nd best achievements for Sea Games, with the exception of 2001 21st Sea Games in Kuala Lumpur, where we won 111 gold medals.

This is the best achieved Sea Games outside of Kuala Lumpur for us.

To the Malaysian contingent, Syabas!

There have been quite a few sports that have been doing very well, like Diving, Karate, Bowling, Equestrian, Rhythemic Gymnastic, Polo, Swimming, Lawn Bowls etc

And of course, some sports have been a letdown. Badminton definitely counts as one, with only 4 Bronze medals to show. Silat did badly as well, so do taekwando, shooting, sailing, weightlifting, bodybuilding, football etc.

We would hopefully be more ready by the 25th Sea Games at Laos in 2009.
