Malaysia’s fourth SEA Games gold was a surprise pulled off by synchronised swimmer Gan Hua Wei at the National Aquatics Centre in Bukit Jalil yesterday.
With an impressive routine, the 18-year-old came out tops in a field of nine participants in the solo technical event.
Two Singaporeans – Debbie Soh and Miya Yong Hsing – took the silver and bronze respectively.
Malaysia won its first gold, which was also the first Kuala Lumpur 2017 SEA Games gold medal, from chinlone linking on Wednesday.
The second and third golds came from the men’s and women’s compound archery teams.
