Tuesday is the last major day of competition at the SEA Games which has seen thousands of athletes from 11 countries compete in a record 56 sports in venues across Clark, Manila and Subic.

According to the National Sports Development Fund's (NSDF) bonus scheme for the SEA Games, a champion gets 300,000 baht, a silver medallist 150,000 baht and a bronze victor 75,000 baht.

The NSDF said on Wednesday the Thai athletes, coaches and associations will receive a total of 226,150,500 baht in bonuses.

In the bronze medal match, Myanmar were forced to go through a penalty shoot-out against Cambodia after both were tied 2-2 with the former finishing third after securing a 5-4 win via the spot.

That is because of the high number of athletes in each discipline in the sport. The national martial art sport of the Philippines uses weapons-based fighting, hand to hand combat, grappling and weapon disarming methods.

During the send-off of Team Indonesia to the Games late last month, the President had asked the athletes to finish in the top two and bring home at least 60 gold medals.

And what a way to close what is now etched in sports history as the biggest SEA Games ever and more important, the best performance ever by Team Philippines.

But the Philippines is only following a trend at the biennial Games, where eight of the last 12 editions have finished with the hosts on top of the medals table.

The next edition will be held in Vietnam in 2021.

Jessa Khan won gold in jiu-jitsu at the 2019 Sea Games in the Philippines on Monday.

The top contributor to the Philippines' gold haul was arnis, the little-known, stick-wielding martial art, with 14 out of the 20 golds available. While Vietnam's women have won gold six times, including this year after beating Thailand 1-0 on Sunday, their men often fell at the final hurdle.

She won bronze at lightweight (57-62kg) at the 2011 Sea Games in Jakarta at the age of 16 before taking home continental honours at the Asian Games in 2014 in Incheon, South Korea at middleweight.
