SINGAPORE: Singapore swimmers kick-started their SEA Games campaign at the Wunna Theikdi Swimming Pool in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar with three gold medals on day one.
Quah Zheng Wen got the golden spree in the pool going in the men's 400m individual medley.
Quah won his and the Republic's first gold in swimming with a time of 4 minutes, 23.45 seconds. The defending champion edged out Thailand's Ketin Nuttapong, while Vietnam was third.
The men's 4-by-200-metre relay turned out to be a thrilling fight between neighbours Singapore and Malaysia.
Singapore seized the lead by the second leg.
But Malaysia's 200-metre SEA Games record holder Daniel Bego pulled his team to within a whisker of the lead.
That set up a blockbuster finish, as Singapore's Quah Zheng Wen sealed his and the Republic's second gold in the pool.
Singapore took gold in a new Games' record of 7-minutes and 26.67 seconds.
Singapore's women also took gold in the 4-by-200 metres relay.
