[15 May 2014] BREAKING NEWS: No Contest in The Sea Games 2015 Singapore

Rasip Isnin, the SEACF's President, inform recently that our beloved sport will not contest in the Sea Games 2015 in Singapore. The bad news for us has taken during SEA Games Fed Meeting end of April this year held in Raffles City Convention Centre, Singapore.

The fact behind the decision: Indonesia's NOC proposed  to include the sport climbing, but not enough support from other member to include it the Games (must be supported minimum by 4 other countries including host country to include any sport to be in the Games).

ASEAN sport climbing community lead by SEACF will have to work harder in make our sport inclusion in the next SEA Games, the jobs to be done could be increase popularity of the sport within young generation and develop more event (recreational or competitional) every year in all ASEAN countries. If possible, the stakeholders could held any special big events during SEA Games 2015, like they have done in Quizon City in the 2005 SEA Games Manila, Phi.

We keep hoping, with all of our effort, that the 'success' of 2011 Sea Games in Palembang (Indonesia) will not the first and the final contest of sport climbing in the SEA Games.
