Team Singapore SEA Games 2013 results Sat Dec 21: Singapore captured a total of 10 medals on the penultimate day at the SEA Games 2013 in Myanmar – three gold, two silver, and five bronze.
The good day gives team Singapore a total of 34 gold, 29 silver, and 45 bronze for the Games, good enough for sixth place in the medal standings.
In the Bronze medal men’s football match, Singapore earned a hard-fought 2-1 win over Malaysia at Zeyar Thiri Stadium in Naypyitaw.
The win took some of the sting out of Singapore’s close loss to Thailand in the semi-finals. The Malaysian team did not look to be at the top of their game, perhaps still reeling from their loss to Indonesia in the other semi-final match.
Singapore’s Harris Harun scored two first half goals, one at the 11th minute, and one at the 14th minute, to put Singapore up 2-0. Both goals appeared to come on some poor defending on the part of Malaysia.
Malaysia didn’t score until A. Thamil Arasu finally broke through in the 69th minute.
Singapore won two gold from the men’s and women’s table tennis singles, with Zhan Jian winning the men’s final and Yu Mengyu taking the women’s final by defeating teammate Isabelle Li, who took the silver. Clarence Chew got a joint bronze after falling in the semi-finals.
In diving, Singapore twins Mark and Timothy Lee took the bronze in the 10m synchronised platform.
In judo, Singapore won three medals on Saturday, with Ho Han Boon taking the gold by defeating Malaysian Abdul Razak in the men’s over 100kg.
Gabriel Yang and Timothy Low both settled for a joint bronze after losing in the men’s under-100kg and under 90kg events.
The Singapore hockey team settled for silver following a 5-0 loss to Malaysia in the men’s gold medal match.
The closing ceremony of the 27th SEA Games 2013 is on Sunday.
