The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia's determined bid to get petanque, tennis and vovinam, left out of the initial list of disciplines, included in the competitive programme for the 2019 SEA Games in the Philippines has met with partial success, with Southeast Asian Games Federation (SEAGF
) Sport and Rules Committee now adding them to the list of 56 sports to be presented for final approval by the Council on November 24.
Chairman of the SEAGF
Executive Committee Dr Celso L Dayrit called on the council to approve the list with immediate effect, even as the Olympic Council of Malaysia joined Cambodia in calling for the restoration of several sports axed from the previous edition, one the host country dominated with an all-time high of 145 gold medals.
