Gold rush seals SEA Games
medals victory for Malaysia
Malaysia clinched victory on the Southeast Games medals table yesterday as a rush of victories took the home nation to a record total -- and nearly one-third of the tournament's golds.
On a bumper penultimate day, with 60 gold medals up for grabs, Malaysia snared 22 to reach 133 for the tournament, putting an unbridgeable distance between them and the chasing pack.
Malaysia already have about one-third of the 404 gold medals at the mini-Olympics, smashing their previous record of 111 and sealing top spot for the first time in 16 years.
