SEA Games: Wushu women's duilian duo win Singapore's first gold of the SEA Games
Team Singapore won their first gold at the 2013 SEA Games after a brilliant display from the Republic's female wushu exponents.
Valerie Wee and Vera Tan came out tops in the three-team women's duilian (barehand) at the Wunna Theikdi Indoor Stadium on Tuesday morning. The duo scored 9.63, finishing ahead of Myanmar and Indonesia in second and third spots.
Emily Sin, Zoe Mui and Fung Hui Xin picked up a silver in the women's duilian (weapons) and taijijian exponent Lee Tze Yuan bagged a bronze, adding to Singapore's final wushu medal tally of one gold, two silver and two bronze. In 2011, the Republic picked up one gold and two bronze.
Singapore's waterpolo team are poised to win their 25th consecutive SEA Games water polo title later today, needing a win over minnows Myanmar to confirm gold.
