The SEA Games in Indonesia might be almost over but the competitive instincts of Team Singapore athletes remained strong as they clinched more medals today (21 Nov), with wushu’s Tao Yijun, Tay Yu Juan and Emily Sin leading the way.
Competing in the women’s duilian team event at the Senayan Indoor Tennis Stadium in Jakarta, the girls clinched gold with a score of 9.71, ahead of Brunei (9.70) and the Philippines (9.68). Their team mates Fung Jin Jie, Jaryl Tay and Samuel Seah also did well with their bronze in the men’s duilian team event.
There were also medals from Palembang. The bridge players held their own well against regional rivals, winning a silver and bronze in the mixed pairs event. Loo Choon Chou and Tan Yoke Lan finished second with a score of 374 while Lam Ze Ying and Kelvin Ng (356) were third. Both pairs tried but found Indonesia’s Lusje Olha Bojoh and Taufik Gautama Asbi (407) too strong.
Meanwhile, the synchronised swimmers won yet another medal to end their SEA Games campaign in Palembang on a high note. Stephanie Chen, Crystal Yap, Lee Mei Shuang, Krishnan Mei Shan, Zhang Hui, Elisabeth Tan, Tay Aik Ping, Geraldine Chew, Samantha Chen and Priscilla Sung won a silver in the free combination event, scoring 73.101 points. Malaysia won the gold while silver went to Indonesia.
