Please note in some events such as Mens & Womens Marathon the standard was very low compared to previous years due to weather. So several SEA Athletes are already below the gold medal standard.
As per the prediction of PATAFA, i read in the Manila Bulletin (article by Nico Giongco) 14.10.16. Juico had predicted 12 golds in Athletics.
Based on my data the maximum we will win is 8 Golds.
The Highlights indicate if an athlete made the standard from 2015 July up until the present. This includes existing medalists who due to age and new younger athletes from other SEA Nations possibly could not place this high.
