Singapore drops karate from Southeast Asian Games

Reuters, Singapore

Cambodia are due to host the SEA Games in 2023, which would leave East Timor as the only member not to stage an edition, with Tan and Chan both stating the need to ensure the SEA Games was affordable for all members.

“Singapore is setting the way we want to do things more professionally,” Tan said.

“We hope we can set this trend. With Malaysia following us [as hosts] in 2017 we have a good chance to continue this standard,” he added.
