Strapping Wong gave himself a belated birthday gift with the hammer throw gold and shouted with delight as his fourth throw soared over the SEA Games mark to a record 65.90m in his tussle against Thailand's silver placed Kittipong Boonmawan who cleared 65.49m.

Jantan clocked a time of 10.38sec to beat the Philippines' Eric Shawn Cray by a margin of 0.05sec at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium. This repeats the same result from the 2015 edition of these Games, but 2 years ago, Ting Wen's time was 55.93, while Vien Nguyen's was 56.05, so both women made improvements this time around.

Quah finished overall 5th out of nine swimmers in the 200m butterfly in a time of 2:05.56s, while compatriot Ong Jung Yi finished 7th in a time of 2:08.32s to qualify for the evening finals.
