Suara.com – There are many things that attract attention from the 2023 Sea Games sports event that is being held in Cambodia. Not only the achievements of athletes, this viral moment of medals without a single light has also become a topic of conversation. This video was first uploaded by the Instagram account @dhika.dr.
Quoted from TikTok @antaranews, it can be seen that the medals for the 20km fast walking event which was held at the Angkor Wat Temple had to be carried out in the dark. To anticipate this, the committee was creative to use the lights from three cars.
According to information, this was done because of the extreme weather that had occurred in the area since noon. The temperature was too hot and the match was postponed for the comfort and safety of the athletes.
Due to the postponement of the schedule, the race ended at sunset. Unfortunately, the committee did not prepare any lighting at the venue, so in the end the medal ceremony was carried out with the lights from three cars.

“Even several athletes collapsed and could not finish the race. The Indonesian athlete, Hendro Yap, immediately collapsed as soon as he crossed the finish tape and had to be supported by Indonesian officials,” reads the statement in the video.
Even so, the medal ceremony was still held solemnly, where Hendro Yap won the gold medal in the men’s category and the Diamond Puspita Violin for the women’s category in these sports.
This moment has also caught the attention of many netizens, including from Indonesia. After being shared by me @bungabdur, this video has even been viewed up to 7 million times.
