Singapore plans to bid for the 2015 SEA Games

In the news this morning: Singapore will make a bid for the SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games in 2015, the year in which Singapore will mark 50 years of independence.

"If successful, it will be the first time Singapore will host the region's biggest multi-sport showpiece since 1993 when its athletes won 50 gold medals." Indeed, I was a volunteer in 1993 at the SEA games. It was a huge event, and it was really neat to be a part of it. I still have a commemorative coin and a "certificate of participation" from the 1993 SEA Games!
