Tuesday, 22 August 2017 : On a day where three new Games records were set, Malaysia continue to pull away from its rivals, amassing another eight gold medals on Monday (Aug 21) to remain at the top of the overall tally of the 29th SEA Games.
Malaysia now have 24 gold medals in the bag after two days of competition proper, leaving closest rival Singapore on second spot with 13 gold medals.
Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand have yet to breach the 10-gold mark but the medal chart is expected to change as the first day of athletics programme gets underway with eight finals events to be contested at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium tomorrow.
However, it was Malaysia’s Welson Sim, Indonesia’s Gede Simon Sudartawa and Olympic star Joseph Schooling of Singapore who grabbed the headlines following their Games record-breaking exploits at the pool.
