SEA Games 29: Petanque athlete brings home gold

Tan Ing Yueh

Joseph Schooling, Darren Lim, Danny Yeo and Quah Zheng Wen made it a night to remember for Team Singapore in the pool when they outclassed the rest of the field to win the SEA Games 4x100m freestyle relay in a stunning new record time.

Although his time was a tad slower than his own 22.95 Asian Record set last month at the 2017 FINA World Championships in Budapest, Schooling's result tonight was enough to overtake his own SEA Games Record of 23.49 set at the 2015 edition of the meet.

Ho delivered Malaysia's fifth wushu gold.

The Philippines also won its second and third gold medals on Monday morning after Nikko Huelgas and Marion Kim Mangrobang respectively ruled men's and women's triathlon.

"That is critical to ensuring the global food system remains safe for all", Yiannas said. IBM's Blockchain Platform will form the basis for much of the work within the project.

Singapore's decision to start off with its two fastest swimmers, Ting Wen and Amanda Lim, paid off as the duo combined to give the Republic a body length's lead before Natasha Ong dived in.

Huelgas was followed by his compatriot John Chicano who won the silver medal.

In the end, Singapore finished more than two seconds faster than nearest rivals Thailand who took silver in 3:46.46.

Vien clocked 1:01:89, breaking the previous SEA Games record of 1:02:11. Her time tonight marks the first occasion she's ever dipped under the 1:02 threshold in the event.

So superior was Singapore to the rest of the field that their nearest rivals Malaysia finished nearly four seconds behind in second spot in 3:21.79.
