The 24th Southeast Asian Games (also known as SEA Games) was held in Nakhon Ratchasimamarker (Korat), Thailandmarker from December 6 to December 15 2007.

The Thai Olympic Committee planned the event to coincide with the commemoration of 80th birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Officials studied the possibility of doing the events in multiple venues like what was done in Vietnam and the Philippines.It was the sixth time Thailand has hosted the SEA Games. Thailand had hosted the 1959 (inaugural games), 1967, 1975, 1985 and 1995 SEA Games. The 2007 games were to be hosted in Singaporemarker, but the city-state gave up the chance in 2004 as the National Stadiummarker was slated for demolition in around that time to build the Singapore Sports Hubmarker.

Aside from Nakhon Ratchasima, events were held at Bangkokmarker and at Chonburimarker.

Preparations

On February 24, 2006, northeast Thailand's Nakhon Ratchasima Provincemarker authorities met to discuss the 2007 SEA Games schedule, and progress on the province's under-construction US$65 million sports complex. Presided over by governor Somboon Ngamlak, the meeting provided an overview of facilities, and ended with reassurances that facilities would be ready for SEA Games in 2007.

Can you hear it,Voice that’s calling from your spirit.

Voice that cheers and excites us all to this mantra.

To be right here, dancing strong moving along with our pride.

Each to try with all the best he can for the world to witness him.

Shining bright with a dedication, growing stronger even if you don’t win.

Everybody shares the very same rhythm in his heart.

Sharing rhythm of the winner that is yours and is mine.

Sharing rhythm of the winner that wakes us up all to share this dance.

Hold our hands doesn’t matter where you may come from.

Celebrate together out loud the victory of our sports.

Criticisms

2007 Southeast Asian Games was so far the worst SEA Games for the team Philippines due to some reasons like level of training for the athletes, Philippine crisis and coaching problems. But, aside from those, another reason was that many games were influenced by Thailand just to get bunches of gold medals like in the sports of sepak takraw (Malaysia did not join the sport because of the reason that Thailand changed the takraw ball), athletics (a Thai gave a bottle of water to the opponent of Julius Sermona while they were having the battle - the said act of giving a bottle of water was indeed a violation), boxing (only one gold medal for the Philippine team because of bias and prejudiced judging) and taekwondo (the gold medal that was supposed to be won by Mary Antoinette Rivero was given to her Thai opponent due to bias judging. In fact, she had many knock-outs against her Thai opponent but the judges did not give a point to Rivero and at the end of the game, Rivero's score was deducted by a point for an irrational reason of the referee).
