Singapore won its 32nd and 33rd golds at the SEA Games in Naypyidaw on Saturday, when Zhan Jian and Yu Mengyu won the men's and women's table tennis singles golds respectively.

Zhan beat Vietnam's Le Tien Da 4-0 in the men's final, while Yu beat compatriot Isabelle Li in the women's final, also by the same scoreline.
