SEA GAMES ORGANIZERS REJECT PHILIPPINES CALL FOR GENDER TEST FOR INDONESIAN VOLLEYBALL PLAYER

The Singapore Southeast Asian Games Organising Committee (SINGSOC) has rejected the demands of the Philippines volleyball coach for a gender test for Indonesian volleyball player Aprilia Santini Manganang. Yesterday, the Philippines delegation had asked SINGSOC to carry out tests on Aprilia because they suspected she was a man given her physique and powerful strikes.

SINGSOC says that the rejection was announced after the committee consulted the South East Asian Games Federation (SEAF) Medical committee. SEAF had reviewed the documents submitted by the Indonesians and found nothing suspicious.

In their match today, Indonesia defeated the Philippines 3-0. Manganang played in all 3 sets for the game, and scored the highest number of points for her team.

SINGSOC says that both teams from Indonesia and the Philippines have been informed.
