Schooling snaps up butterfly gold

Schooling snaps up butterfly gold”

Schooling, blowing hard after his race, said he was feeling the pace halfway through the meet, with three gold medals in the bag. Most recently at the World Championships in Budapest, Schooling notched 50.83 for bronze behind America's Caeleb Dressel and Hungary's Kristof Milak who earned gold and silver, respectively.

He fought his way to the men's jianshu gold with a score of 9.67 points, upsetting compatriot and World Cup victor Wong Weng Son who took the silver.

Another Singaporean gold medal came courtesy of Roanne Ho Ru'en, who won the women's 50m breaststroke in a Games record time of 31.29. The former UCLA swimmer was able to out-touch Vietnam's Nguyen Thi Anh Vien who finished just.01 behind in 55.75 for silver.

For Vien Nguyen, tonight's silver marks her 4th individual medal for these games after she already collected gold medals across the 100m backstroke, 200m backstroke and 400m freestyle events.

Zheng Wen Quah cruised to victory in the men's 200m butterfly event in 1:57.95.

The quartet led from start to finish in the final event of the second day of the swimming competition, steadily increasing the distance between them and their rivals with each 100m leg before touching home in 3min 17.85sec to smash the previous SEA Games mark of 3:19.59.

This was also Jing Wen's second gold medal of the night.

The win means the hosts will be the only team in the semi-finals with a ideal record, which will be something the other sides will be wary of.

Hosts Malaysia won three gold medals today in karate with Celine Lee Xin Yi, Lim Chee Wei and S. Senthil Kumaran all prevailing at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. This total would match the nation's result from back in 2001 when Malaysia last hosted the Southeast Asian Games.
