KUALA LUMPUR - Singapore's short track speed skaters won four silvers on the final day of the 29th SEA Games competition on Wednesday (Aug 30).

This takes the sport's overall tally to four silvers and one bronze.

It also means Team Singapore's 568-strong contingent ended the 12-day affair with 57 gold, 58 silver and 73 bronze medals to finish fourth in the 11-nation table.

Lucas Ng and Cheyenne Goh were both second in their respective 1,000m races at the Empire City Mall, where the speed skating competition was held.

Skating in the first of two heats earlier that day, Ng posted 2min 06.858sec to finish second in his heat, behind Thailand's Triphop Thongnam (2:06.822).

Chong, who skated in the second heat, was also second with his time of 1:43.780.

The top two finishers from each heat qualify for the A final.
