The five sports that were dropped by the Malaysian Olympics Council (MOM) to be contested at the 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games still have a chance to be re-listed.
According to Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, the relevant parties are having several discussions to resolve this issue before making a final decision.
“We are still in the process of discussions with the MOM, and I request for nothing to be officially announced as of yet,” he said, according to Harian Metro.
“There are a few sports that can be considered for the event, which might get them re-listed or not at all,” he added.
The MOM announced that 34 sports with 342 events have been confirmed for next year’s SEA Games, with the exception of triathlon, bodybuilding, canoeing, fencing and judo.
