SINGAPORE: Team Singapore's female swimmers provided the only gold sparkle in the pool on Sunday evening at the Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar.
The team of Tao Li, Samantha Yeo, Quah Ting Wen and Amanda Lim were supreme in the four by 100 women's medley relay.
Tao Li opened by giving them a commanding lead in the backstroke and they never looked back, holding their advantage throughout the race.
The four finished the event with a time of four minutes and 13.02 seconds.
Thailand took silver while Malaysia picked up bronze.
Earlier, Quah Ting Wen and Lynette Lim failed to usurp Natthanan Junkrajang's hold on the gold in the 200-metre breaststroke.
Lim led after three laps but was eventually overtaken by Quah and Natthanan, who defended her title.
In the women's 200-metre breaststroke, Samantha Yeo earned a credible bronze, with Malaysia getting a firm victory.
Yeo's time of two minutes, 34.27 seconds barely behind that of her second-place opponent from Thailand.
And finally, Singapore's Russell Ong narrowly missed out gold in the men's 50-metre freestyle.
Ong led for about half the race before Indonesia's Fauzi Triady came back with a strong finish.
The Indonesian ended up just 0.02 seconds ahead of Ong to take home the gold.
Thailand took bronze.
