This is a record number of medals in SEA Games history, surpassing the number of 530 medal sets at the 30th SEA Games held in the Philippines. In the list of 38 sports, the host Cambodia has omitted many Olympic sports such as shooting, archery, rowing and canoeing.

This is not the strength of the host country but the "gold mine" of Vietnam. These sports brought home 28 Gold medals for the Vietnamese sports delegation at SEA Games 31.

Instead, Cambodia has added many local sports such as Kun Bukator, and Khmer martial arts at SEA Games 32. The SEA Games 32 will be held from May 5 to May 17, 2023, at five locations in Cambodia, including Phnom Penh capital, Siem Reap province, Preah Sihanouk, Kampot and Kep.
