They officialy start next wednesday, but some of the competitions like Chinlone, football and weightlifting already started some days ago (mainly the competitions on which Myanmar wins more medals. They're currently leadign the medal tally but that will change for sure once the "real thing" starts in a few days).

In fact, the whole thing of not including sports like tennis and gymnastics while including native sports like Chinlone and Sittuyin have been widely criticized during these last months as an effort of the host nation to boost their medal chances.

oh i'm forget to say that i heard that the opening ceremony for myanmar 2013 is majorly inspired by the previous sea games opening which held in indonesia 2011 and so i hoped that singapore can do a better opening in 2015.....

I heard that Myanmar is strengthening football. I do not know this SEA games. I first thought "SEA" is literally sea and athletes do some swimming,sailboat,canoe....whatever water concerns.

Hahahaha, you are so funny Palette86-san, SEA is an acronym from South East Asia, regarding that Myanmar's National Football team becomes stronger, i don't know whether the Burmese really become stronger, or my country that become weaker :)
