Peter Gilchrist captured Singapore's first cue sports gold medal at the 2013 SEA Games on Friday, winning the men's billiards singles title.

His 3-2, come-from-behind victory over Myanmar's Nay Thway Oo in Naypyidaw meant that the Republic bagged its sixth gold of the day, its biggest single one-day haul in this edition of the biennial event.

Singapore's sailors had snared five golds earlier in the day.
