SINGAPORE: Singapore's swimmers won medals in five out of seven events on day two of SEA Games in Myanmar.
The highlight of the night came as Joseph Schooling ended Singapore's 28-year gold-medal drought in the 200-metre individual medley.
And he did it in style, shaving about two seconds off the SEA Games record with his time of two minutes and 00.82 seconds.
Vietnam's Duy Khoi Tran finished second while Nuttapong Ketin of Thailand came in third.
But there was disappointment in a re-swim of the women's 100-metre freestyle.
A technical glitch in the race on Thursday meant that Singapore's Amanda Lim had to settle for fourth in the re-swim after initially taking bronze.
Singapore's Quah Ting Wen repeated her earlier silver, finishing behind Thailand's Natthanan Junkrajang.
Elsewhere in the men's 100-metre freestyle, Singapore's Danny Yeo picked up bronze after being beaten by Indonesia's Fauzi Triady and Vietnam's Hoang Quy Phuoc.
Triady's time of 49.99 seconds is a new SEA Games record, as well as the fastest ever by a South East Asian swimmer.
There was a shocker for Singapore's women in the 4X100m freestyle relay.
Singapore led for three quarters of the race, only to finish with silver after being overhauled by Thailand in the last lap.
In the women's 400-metre freestyle, Lynette Lim could only manage a bronze.
She failed to match the pace set by Thailand's Benjaporn Sriphanomthorn and Nguyen Thi Anh Vien of Vietnam.
Singapore's other representative in this race, Rachel Tseng, finished fourth but managed a personal best of four minutes and 22.17 seconds.
