Dinah Chan ended Singapore's 16-year wait for SEA Games cycling gold on Sunday, as she won the women's 30km time trial event in Naypyidaw, Myanmar.

The 27-year-old clocked 46min 30.125sec to take the title 33 seconds ahead of Thailand's Chanpeng Nontasin.

The success marked a remarkable comeback for Chan, who was hurt in a collision with a car while training in September.

She had previously won bronze in the road race at the 2011 Games in Palembang, Indonesia.
