Laser Run and Triathle promoted to Southeast Asian Games participants
A delegation from the Asian Modern Pentathlon Confederation (AMPC) attended the 38th General Assembly of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) in order to raise awareness of the 2019 Southeast Asia Games in the Philippines.
Laser Run and Triathle are on the programme for the first time and AMPC Secretary General Namdev Shirgaonkar and Coordinator Sangkeong Yeo joined in the assembly in Bangkok (THA) on March 3. They arranged special meetings with the Presidents and Secretaries General of ASEAN (Southeast Asia) nations that are not currently UIPM members, such as Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Brunei and East Timor.
Mr Yeo said: “We took an opportunity to introduce our sport, who we are and what we do for the development of Modern Pentathlon. Considering potential members from those countries, it was a great opportunity to get to know each other and we are looking forward to seeing them as our members in the future.”
