Kuala Lumpur
– Malaysia overtook Indonesia to top the medals board , picking up three gold today from archery and synchronised swimming to raise their overall tally to four as the 29th SEA Games readies for its official opening on Saturday.

The national archery squad returned to grab the men’s and women’s team compound titles to make up for their stumbling start overnight. The hosts are now the team to watch in the last compound event tomorrow when they defend the mixed team title won by Fatin Nurfatehah Mat Salleh and Mohd Juwaidi Mazuki in Singapore.

The duo who anchored the team competitions will again pair up for the mixed team in which they will start the quarterfinals shoot against Singapore’s Ang Han Teng and Madeleine Ong Xue Li .

Gan Hua Wei, 18, became the proud owner of a gold by a whisker in the synchronised swimming solo technical routine, thwarting fierce competition from Singapore which took the silver and bronze. – Bernama
