Some remarks about these rankings, compared to the 2009 SEA Games in Vientiane, Laos:
If this ranking would be confirmed, then it would be a massive change to the medal tables
(for athletics) at the 2009 SEA Games, where Thailand won 48 medals (including 14 Golds) and other countries were far behind with;
22 medals / 7 Gold for Vietnam
20 medals / 7 Gold for Indonesia
16 medals / 6 Gold for Malaysia
15 medals / 7 Gold for the Philippines.

Top runner Triyaningsih
However, one thing that should be considered is that some athletes are NOT YET placed in the rankings, because they have yet to compete during this season (I.e Yuan Yufang MAS 20km Walk). Also important to note that, Indonesia would gain lots of advantage as the host and will definitely show excellent performances. They likely to dominate the following events;

Men -  All running events !!, however they will encounter a great problem in Field events.

Women -  Sprint Hurdles, Long Distances (3 Golds is within the reach of Asian class runner, Triyaningsih)

Meanwhile, it is of interest to point that Vietnam, a country of over 70 millions population and is very fast developing in their sports, having assisted by expert and scientist from Germany, other European coaches, and some from China as well as educated local coaches, and as you see on table above, they will surely produce the best result (mainly in womens) in the history of their SEA Games appearance.

Just do not forget the Thailand team, the powerhouse of athletics in Southeast Asia for a long time and have been produced huge number of prominent athletes. But the likelihood to loss the dominance is obvious. Nevertheless they could rely on jumping events, throwing events, and relays as well as sprints (but a bit difficult!!).
Jironi leads 800m 1:50.21

Two countries, Malaysia and the Philippines would place all the hopes on experienced athletes as usual (I'm not a fan to say veteran). In this edition, Malaysia team seems to have better chance to bag over 6 Gold medals, and I don't see the Philippines to repeat the 7 Golds achieved in Laos 2009. Two Golds is achievable by Singapore and perhaps one for Myanmar, however let us pray for the others to win a bronze.

Finally, I hope that this Pre-Rankings is useful for readers of AdrianSprints.com as a reference during athletics events in SEA Games, Palembang 2011.
