SEA Games: Singapore capture historic Twenty20 cricket gold

Myanmar Sweeps Way to SEA Games Semifinals Spot

The home side, who have surpassed their target of 111 gold medals at the 2017 SEA Games, were looking to put the icing on the cake with the highly coveted gold in men's football.

Thailand broke Malaysian hearts when they beat the hosts 1-0 in the football final of the 29th SEA Games at the Shah Alam Stadium tonight. The Thais chipped in a corner which should have been routine catch for Haziq, but the Johor Darul Ta'zim goalkeeper attempted to punch the ball away. Malaysia is ranked 12th in the world while Myanmar is ranked 85th.

At the 2011 Jakarta SEA Games, Indonesia won 182 gold medals to become the overall champions, but it was the Malaysians who spoilt their party by defeating them in the football final after a penalty shoot-out.

As Azizulhasni celebrated with his wife and children, the National Velodrome in Nilai went wild as it was confirmed that Malaysia had matched their 2001 national record of 111 gold medals.

Indonesia's Yolla Primadona Jumpil and Hendy, the defending champions, were reportedly enraged after coming second in the competition with 554 points, behind the Malaysian team's 582.

Every so often, a rare but important song and video come along that lets us know how true that is. OK, so the title's not exactly catchy, but the point is for it to catch on.

Thailand's delegation chief Thana Chaiprasit also took aim at the hosts when he said: "They organise sports they are good at and do not organise sports other countries are good at".

But Malaysia's haul of gold medals isn't outlandish for the SEA Games.

This is the first time the national hockey squad has made it to final of the SEA Games, although the team returned with bronze from the last two editions of the Games. Two years ago in Singapore they won 62, finishing fourth.

On Tuesday the home team had wins in badminton, sailing, diving, pencak silat, muay kick-boxing, speed skating and water ski and wakeboarding. The games, which is being held in Kuala Lumpur, will end on Wednesday. Malaysia's polo team, which features the country's sports minister, also won gold.
