May 24, 2022

It’s that time again when we all huddle together in front of our screen with our hearts clenched as we watch our heroes dominate the games. Except this time, it’s way better because we can finally watch it live together at our favourite mamak 😎 Limau Ais satu, pls!

 

To get into the SEA Games spirit, we thought it’d be good to share some fun facts about our athletes this time round. ‘Cause honestly, we’ve got an awesome line up of heroes who we’re so proud of!

We sent a total of 612 athletes

They’re competing in a total of 37 sports including mountain biking, eSports and martial arts like Pencak Silat, Jujitsu, Wushu, and Taekwondo! 

We have a 146-medal target

…And we’re crushing it! As of this publication, our heroes have already accumulated 173 medals 🥳 39 Gold, 45 Silver and 89 Bronze, baby!

Hear them ROAR in their new TruVapor apparel

Only the best threads for the best! Did you spot their swanky new gear? Eye-catching, comfy and full of Malaysian pride. They were all sponsored by Yonex-Sunrise btw (thanks guys!).

Our flag bearer bagged the FIRST gold medal

She’s done it before and she did it again! Nur Dhabitah won gold in the women’s individual one-metre springboard event. (you go, girl!) 😎
