  1. https://www.2017.taipei/home Since it's only a couple of weeks to go, I felt we should start a thread already about the upcoming Universiade.

  2. 2017 SEA Games Kuala Lumpur From the Minister of Youth and Sports Malaysia and Chairman of the Malaysian SEA Games Organising Committee,YB Khairy Jamaluddin. After 16 years, Malaysia is once again hosting the SEA Games. Back then, we had just hosted a highly successful Commonwealth Games in 1998, and managed to become overall champion at the 2001 SEA Games. Since then, Malaysian sports has seen its ups and downs. Despite that, it has never lost its vibrancy and excitement, especially among sports fans who always support their local sporting heroes. The year 2017 will also mark Malaysia’s 60th year of independence - an important milestone in our young nation’s history. I am sure that on the sporting front, the 29th chapter of the SEA Games will also be a landmark occasion and a source of pride for all Malaysians in many years to come. Most importantly, we promise to put on a good show for all the athletes, officials and most importantly, sports fans and enthusiasts like yourself. See you in 29th Sea Games Kuala Lumpur 2017! Official Website: http://www.seagames2017.com.my/default.asp The theme of the Games is "Rising Together", signifying the coming of age for Southeast Asia as a community. The region has come a long way in making its mark on the global stage and this is a time for us to come together to write the next chapter in our collective journey of peace, progress, and prosperity. With Kuala Lumpur 2017 being the first SEA Games after the formation of the ASEAN Community, sports will play a big role in bringing all the citizens of Southeast Asia together in celebrating our achievements and commitment towards sportsmanship, as well as uplifting and inspiring the entire region. The logo is based on the famous Malaysian symbol which is the Wau Bulan, a type of moon-kite synonymous with the east coast states of the country. Graceful, beautiful, powerful and rising high above, the Wau establishes itself as something that could uniquely represent the transcendent power of sports. The system of a combination of stripes and shards of colour is collated from the flags of all Southeast Asian countries to create the Kuala Lumpur 2017 identity. To personify and embody the spirit of the Games, there needs to be a mascot which is memorable and eye-catching. For Kuala Lumpur 2017, our mascot is a graceful and powerful Malayan Tiger. He is gracious, friendly, competitive and athletic. Most importantly, he is a true athlete. His name is RIMAU. Which stands for Respect ,Integrity, Move, Attitude & Unity. Respect Respect your opponents , the officials and the fans. Uphold the virtues of the games. Integrity Honesty in respecting the code of ethics of the games and the values that embodies it. Move Faster , higher , stronger. Push the limit and break new barriers. Attitude Positivity, sportsmanship and friendship. Compete to win but win with honor. Unity Come together as one celebrating the true spirit of the games. THE COMMITTEE The Malaysian SEA Games Organising Committee (MASOC) for the Kuala Lumpur 2017 will be headed by Prime Minister, Dato' Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak, as its advisor. Minister of Youth and Sports, YB Khairy Jamaluddin and OCM President Y.A.M Tunku Tan Sri Imran Tuanku Jaafar are the Chairman and Deputy Chairman respectively. As the Chairman, Khairy will oversee the entire organisation of the Games. The Chief Executive Officer of the Committee is Dato’ Seri Zolkples Embong. MASOC will be supported by 14 sub-committees which were formed earlier in 2015. http://seagames2017.com.my/v1/committee.html HISTORY OF THE GAMES Formerly known as the SEAP (South East Asian Peninsular) Games, the inaugural event was first held in 1959. The countries which took part were Thailand, Burma, Malaysia, Singapore, South Vietnam and Laos with just 12 sports being competed. Based on the recently-introduced system of rotation, the next host of the SEA Games in 2017 should have been Brunei with Malaysia scheduled for 2019. However, Brunei stated recently that they are not ready to host as yet for the next several editions. And it is because of this request that the SEA GF (South East Asian Games Federation) made an offer to Malaysia on 14 July 2012 to be the hosts in 2017 to which Malaysia acquiesced. In 2019, the biennial games will head to the Philippines and Vietnam in 2021. Cambodia will be hosts for the first time ever in 2023. The ASEAN Para Games were first held in 2001 when Malaysia was the hosts, followed by Vietnam (2003), Philippines (2005), Thailand (2007), Laos (2009), Jakarta (2011) and then Myanmar (2013). The hosting of this biennial championship for the physically-challenged athletes in the region is aimed at promoting friendship, the development of sports as well as integrating para-athletes into ASEAN society. With these factors in mind, the ASEAN Paralympic Sports Federation (APSF) has made the decision tohold the ASEAN Para Games immediately after each SEA Games – in tandem with the practices of the Olympic Games and Asian Games. Malaysia first hosted the SEA Games or SEAP Games back in 1965 and up until the Singapore edition in 2015, Malaysia had hosted for a total of five times. Malaysia was also a host in 1965, 1971, 1977, 1989 and 2001. The last time Malaysia played host to the SEA Games was back in 2001 when they emerged as overall champions with 111 gold medals, to be followed by Thailand (103) and Indonesia (72). After 16 years, Malaysia will once again play host to the biggest multi-sports event of Southeast Asia, equalling Thailand’s record for hosting a total of six SEA Games.
