受台风北冕的影响,正在菲律宾举办的东南亚赛事主办方不得不延期了将近一半原定于昨天(周二)进行的比赛。

大多数室外运动项目延期至周四进行,台风北冕预计也将在当天离开菲律宾。

台风北冕风速高达155千米每小时,最高时速可达235千米,已造成一人死亡,超过20万人流离失所。由于连日暴雨,菲律宾已经洪水泛滥。马尼拉国际机场在当地时间早上11点关闭,并取消了周二接下来12小时的航班。

菲律宾东南亚赛事组委会发布了一项声明称:“请相信我们为这次比赛做好了防暴风雨的准备,我们还有几个候补计划来确保此次两年一届的赛事不会超过原定的闭幕时间,也就是12月11日。”

“我们希望每个留在此地的人都能讲安全置于首位,并且继续本着真正的体育精神来享受第三十届东南亚赛事。”

一些网球比赛运动员对赛事糟糕的管理提出了抱怨,尽管他们在上午7点就到达了体育场,但是直到下午2点晚些时候才被通知他们的比赛推迟了。新加坡网球选手Ng原定于在黎刹纪念体育场馆早上九点进行男单四分之一决赛,他告诉《海峡时报》:“这太混乱了,赛事监督方较早取消比赛的做法并不十分明智。”

菲律宾东南亚赛事组委会首席运营官拉蒙·苏萨拉向运动员们道歉称由于一些变故,他们等待了数个小时,但他同时也袒护了那些做出取消比赛决定的技术代表,说道:“技术代表的重要作用便是确保赛场能安全比赛,以及设施与运动员们的安全。”
