Indonesian swimmer I Gede Siman Sudartawa clocked in at 25.20 seconds in the men's 50-meter backstroke at the 2017 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in Kuala Lumpur, breaking the biennial event's previous record set by Quah Zheng Wen of Singapore in the last edition.

Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said the Philippine government was pleased by the Filipino athletes' dedication to bring honor to the country, especially now that the Philippines has earned "three gold medals, four silver medals, and four bronze medals". "So to break the SEA Games mark was a pleasant surprise". "It's partly because it's a new relay team with two new fresh faces (Ong and Jing Wen)".

"I was just so happy". Touching in 4:10.96, Nguyễn added a 3rd gold to her 2017 haul.

And that was precisely what ensured as the Singapore supporters in the capacity crowd at the National Aquatic Centre yelled and cheered the 20-year-old on.

Loh Jack Chang (pic) won his second SEA Games gold medal and the sixth for Malaysia in the wushu competition on Tuesday.

The Republic led from start to finish, with lead swimmer Ting Wen establishing the buffer, while Amanda Lim and Natasha Ong maintained the advantage before Jing Wen powered home.

"We were a bit unlucky as we didn't get any medal in the evening session but that is how it is, we win some and lose some but what is important now is to look ahead to the next game", he told reporters after the event.
