Swimmer Theresa Goh notched her second gold in as many days at the Asean Para Games on Thursday, with an imperious showing in the 200m freestyle (S5) race in Naypyidaw, Myanmar.

The 26-year-old came home in 3min 51.38s at the Wunna Theikdi Swimming Complex on Thursday, more than a minute ahead of second-placed Nguyen Thi Den of Vietnam (5:06:91).

Her compatriots also put in good showings on Thursday. Swimmer Benson Tan claimed Singapore's second gold of the day, setting a Games record time of 1:02:88 in the 100m freestyle (S14) race.

The two golds gave the Republic a total of four golds won so far at the Asean Para Games.
