Malaysia won its fifth wushu SEA Games gold medal after Ho Mun Hua triumphed in the Nanqua event at KLCC Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur Tuesday.
Mun Hua posted 9.67 points in men’s nanquan event to clinch his first-ever SEA Games gold medal, after failing in the four previous campaigns.
Pham Quoc Khanh of Vietnam won silver with 9.66 while Brunei’s Sufi Shayiran Roslan won bronze with 9.65.
Malaysia’s earlier gold medals came from Yeap Wai Kin, who delivered two from the men’s jianshu and qiangshu events while with one each from Diana Bong (women’s nanquan) and Loh Jack Chang (men’s taijijian).
At the last SEA Games in Singapore two years ago, Malaysia only managed to claim two gold medals. (Courtesy The Star)
