Cambodia remove multiple familiar sports from SEA Games 32

Many Olympic sports like shooting, rowing and archery have been removed by Cambodia from SEA Games 32 next year.

Cambodia held the 32nd SEA Games conference in its capital Phnom Penh from July 11 to 13. At the conference, the host country proposed 40 sports for SEA Games 32. Of these, 15 sports at SEA Games 31 in Vietnam were crossed out of the list, including many Olympic sports like shooting, archery and rowing.

The host explained that they removed these sports because they didn’t have the athletes as well as facilities to meet organizational requirements. According to Deputy Director of the General Department of Physical Education and Sports Tran Duc Phan, these are the sports that Vietnam are strong at, so this will greatly affect the number of gold medals the country could earn.
