Action from the Southeast Asian Games

  • Intro:

    Malaysia's 18 year-old Muhammad Irfan Shamshuddin claimed his nation's first athletics gold of 27th SEA Games in Myanmar on Sunday.

    While Singapore and Malaysia drew in the football tournament.


    Athletics kicked off Sunday as the 27th South East Asian Games continued in Myanmar.

    Malaysia claimed the first gold at the Wunna Theikdi Stadium when Muhammad Irfan Shamshuddin won the men's discus on his final throw with a throw of 53.16 meters.

    It's a new Malaysian national record for the 18-year-old as he breaks the previous mark of 49.90 he set at the Brunei Open last month.

    There was controversy in the men's 45-50 kilogram final when Myanmar's Zay Yar slammed his knee into the gut of Indonesia's Awaluddin Nur, sending him crashing to the mat in pain.

    The Indonesia corner screamed for a foul, but instead the referee counted Nur out as he lays on the mat. Zay Yar was given the victory as hosts Myanmar win another gold medal, while Indonesia's Awaluddin Nur was left licking his wounds.

    A victory over arch-rivals Malaysia would give Singapore the Group A title in Southeast Asian Games men's football on Sunday.

    In the 61st minute Singapore's Faris Ramli's lofted a free kick into the box which was headed against the post by Safuwan Baharudin, but Afiq Yunos knocked in the rebound to give Singapore the lead.

    It ended 1-1 as Malaysia, the defending Games champions, struck late and can now win Group A with a victory in their final match against Vietnam on Tuesday.

    Having already clinched their tenth successive SEA Games gold in men's basketball, the Philippines looked to finish undefeated as they faced Malaysia in their final game on Sunday.

    Since 1977 the Philippines have lost only once, an upset in the final to Malaysia in 1989.
