Indonesia’s win in the breaking girls competition in dancesport at the 30th Southeast Asian Games on Sunday did not add to the country’s medal tally as the event was treated as an exhibition due to the limited number of participating nations.
The competition only saw the participation of Indonesia and the Philippines. It ended with Dwi Cindy Desyana of Indonesia defeating Debbie Mahinay of the Philippines 3-2 in points.
Information circulated late Sunday saying that the breaking girls competition would not be listed as a medal event as only two nations participated in the competition.
“Prior to a general assembly, [the organizers] made a report on a list of sports with two to three participating nations each.
“As per regulation, a sport with less than four participating nations is not to be [officially] competed in. In breaking girls dancesport, it only featured two competing nations. The assembly decided to treat the sporting event as an exhibition,” chief of the Indonesian contingent Harry Warganegara said on Sunday.
