SEA Games 29: Karate, athletics add golds for Vietnam

"I'm glad we could get a new record and win".

The three bronze came from men's daoshu/gunshu, men's nandao/nangun and women's taijijian categories.

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 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.

Among the Pinoy campaigners to watch is two-time SEA Games silver medalist Harlene Raguin, who narrowly missed bagging the gold in the women's epee battle in the previous SEA Games in Singapore.

Jafri Firdaus Chew has not had a satisfying time for Malaysia U22 so far in the SEA Games.

Post Mittal's resignation, Ashwani Lohani appointed as new Railway Board chairman
A Mechanical engineer by training, Ashwani Lohani belongs to the Indian Railways Services of Mechanical Engineering (1980 batch). The head of India's railways has quit after a series of deadly accidents on the crumbling network, an official said Wednesday.

The remaining events went to Singaporean swimmers, who struck gold across the women's 50m butterfly, men's 200m backstroke, women's 100m freestyle, as well as the women's 4x200m freestyle relay. This was That's second individual gold medal after the first one in the women's criterium category.

Rifda was declared the gold victor in the balance beam with 13.125 points following a protest over the scoring by Indonesia.

Having made eight changes to the line-up, Malaysia lacked the fluidity they showed against Myanmar on Monday and it certainly did not look like some players were fighting for a place in the starting line-up.

Thailand beat Singapore 3-1 to advance to the final scheduled at 9am tonmorrow.

Squash is set to add a gold tomorrow from the all-Malaysia mixed final between Ryan Neville Pasqual and Andrea Lee Jia Qi squaring off against Sanjay Singh Chal and S. Sivasangari.
