The finals of the Muaythai competitions were one of the highlights of the 31st SEA Games. There was not an empty chair in the stadium, the atmosphere electrifying and the contests world class.
There had been so many surprises with Vietnam upsetting the Motherland of Muaythai, Thailand, in the Female 54kg, 60kg, 63.5kg and Male 60kg divisions and topping the medal table with 4 gold medals, Thailand taking 3, Philippines (who already won the Mae Muaythai competition) taking 2 and Cambodia and Malaysia with 1.
There were so many moments of friendship, fair play.
