The 16th Southeast Asian Games were held in Manila, the Philippines from 24 November - 3 December 1991. This was the second time that the country hosted the biennial regional sporting event. It was officially opened by President Corazon Aquino at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila through a colorful opening ceremony. It was the only SEA Games where the overall championship was heavily contested. The deciding medal came from the last sporting event - women's marathon where Indonesia got the gold medal.
Kiko Labuyo, a colourful mountain-dwelling fighting cock, was the official mascot of the XVI SEA Games.
Reduction of gold medals
The Philippines should have tallied a total of 91 gold medals but one of the gold medals from boxing was proclaimed unofficial. The said gold medal should have been fought by a Filipino boxer against a Thai boxer but the latter was found positive in the doping tests. The gold medal was, at first, given to the Philippines but after a few days, the SEAG Organizing Committee declared that there will be no gold and silver medalists for the said event in boxing because there was no battle fought. They had forgiven the Thai boxer.
