The countdown to the 2015 Singapore SEA Games started on Saturday evening, at a launch party held at Gardens by the Bay.

Said Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong in his address: "There's much to look forward to. Our athletes will compete with the best in the region, and will strive to improve on their performances in Myanmar.

"Many have told me that they are making a special effort for the Games, because they are competing here at home, in front of our home crowd."
