On Day 9 of the SEA Games 2019, the country scripted history by recording its best-ever overall medal haul in the history of the SEA Games. They bested their own numbers from the SEA Games held in 2005, when they had won 290 medals overall.

In 2005, the Philippines were the overall champions of the SEA Games hosted by themselves – and as mentioned earlier, they had won 290 medals overall – 112 gold, 85 silver and 93 bronze.

The SEA Games 2005 featured 40 sports – the highest number of sporting events in the entire history of the Games at that time, with more events than even the Asian Games and the Olympic Games.

And as of right now, at the time of writing, the Philippines have won 322 medals overall – including 127 gold, 95 silver and 100 bronze – in the SEA Games 2019 hosted by themselves once again.

With three more days to go in the 2019 edition of the Games, it is safe to say that the hosts will set a much higher record this time, as almost two hundred more medal events are set to be held in the coming days.

The overall medals tally at the time of writing, was as follows:

Country Gold Silver Bronze Total
Philippines 127 95 100 322
Indonesia 74 73 86 233
Vietnam 72 88 99 259
Thailand 69 72 91 232
Malaysia 49 39 57 145
Singapore 48 48 63 159
Myanmar 3 16 41 60
Cambodia 4 6 26 36
Brunei 2 5 6 13
Laos 0 5 21 26
Timor-Leste 0 0 2 2
