It seems that the home advantage that our athletes have are coming into effect so far. Our Malaysian contingent had a strong start at the KL 2017 Sea Games after the sepak takraw
team took home the first gold medal in the chinlone
As of Thursday night, Malaysia is the overall leader in the medal standings with four golds, three silvers, and three bronze medals followed by Indonesia and Myanmar.
And on Friday, it seems that our victorious streak shows no signs of slowing down.
It’s not even noon yet but we’ve managed to clinch three more gold medals, thanks to open water swimming and archery.
The first gold of the day was contributed by Kevin Yeap
in the men's 10km open water swimming
event while Heidi Gan
won the second gold in the women’s category, as reported by The Star
The archery team continued their amazing feat after a very solid performance on Thursday by contributing another gold on Friday via the mixed team compound category
. Our Malaysian archers beat out Myanmar 152-142
We’ve got a few more sporting events happening today so let’s wish our Malaysian athletes the best of luck! #MalaysiaBoleh
