The SEA Games are a colorful weeklong sports championship for Southeast Asian countries, attracting more than 5,000 athletes from the best teams in 11 countries:  Brunei, Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

There are about 30 sports being played in the Games, among them athletics, aquatics, badminton, boxing, canoeing, futsal, field hockey, judo, pétanque, shooting, table tennis and wrestling. Golf is also a medal sport at the Games. The golf competition takes places at the Naypyidaw golf course.

Until 1975, the SEA Games were called the South East Asian Peninsular Games. When Indonesia and the Philippines were accepted as members, the name changed to South East Asian Games.
