Vietnam SEA Games to push through mid-2022
An official announcement will be made in a week, according to Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) President Abraham ‘Bambol’ Tolentino.
The Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in Thailand, meanwhile, is expected to be pushed back one year.
Originally scheduled for March 10 to 20 next year, the sixth edition of the Aimag is being moved due to health and safety considerations.
Officials of several sports events included in the AIMAG calendar already confirmed the postponement of the event held once every four years.
