Singapore clinched its 34th and final gold medal on Saturday afternoon at the Zayyathiri Indoor Stadium, as judoka Ho Han Boon emerged triumphant in the men's over-100kg category.

The 1.91m-tall, 195kg giant defeated Thailand's Saknarin Kaewpakdee to clinch the Republic's first judo gold in 24 years. Malaysia's Abdul Razak won the bronze.

The last time Singapore won a judo gold was in 1989, when Edmund Tan (men's lightweight) and Tang Soon Oon (extra lightweight) won in Kuala Lumpur.
