Singapore's equestrian rider Janine Khoo clinched a SEA Games gold medal in the individual show-jumping competition on Wednesday.

The 16-year-old had two flawless, no-penalties rounds riding CP Safari to clinch top spot ahead of Thailand's Jaruporn Limpichati and Indonesia's Jendry Palandeng.

It was Singapore's first equestrian gold since the 1995 Chiang Mai Games, when R. Sumama, James Ng, Catherine Oh and Peter Abisheganaden won the three-day team event gold.
