The 27th Southeast Asian Games is underway in Naypyidaw, Myanmar until 22 Dec. This is the third time Myanmar is hosting the SEA Games after 1961 and 1969. There are over 1,550 medals up for grabs - across 460 events in 33 sports - of which 460 are gold. Who among the Singapore contingent are likeliest to achieve that most coveted colour?

Kudos to our men's water polo team, who have already done it even before today's opening ceremony. Having never experienced finishing elsewhere besides the top spot, they continued their proud tradition by beating Myanmar 21-13 in the final match on 10 Dec at the Zayar Thiri Aquatic Centre. Twenty-five - that's how many gold medals the kingpins of Southeast Asia have won consecutively.

Elsewhere, our wushu team also took home the gold in the women's barehand duilian event that saw duo Valerie Wee and Vera Tan beat their opponents from host nation Myanmar as well as Indonesia.
