[06 Feb 2009] SEA Games Dream is Still Alive

Since our first meeting in 2004 in Jakarta we have a dream to make our sport as one of competed event in SEA Games. We have chase the dream accordingly where we attend many meeting of SEA Games Federation in Manila before 2005 SEA Games Manila, and fortunately we could held climbing competition in the Quizon City during the SEA Games. We got very big support from our friend in SCAPI who has been local government aware of our event.

Now, we are approaching the next 2009 SEA Games in Jakarta, could our dream be realised in the city where we put our dream in 2004? The answer of the question relies much on all of our hand where we have to make necessary efforts in our own country to get a strong support from national sport council (NSC)or national olympic committee (NOC) or other agency such as ministry of sport. In addition to the effort, of course we have to improve our own sport in front of them such as increase climbing competitions or events. Good luck for all ASEAN climbing community.
