AGU Media, DOHA (QAT): Malaysia’s Koi Sie Yan emerged as the top star in rhythmic gymnast, winning four gold and two silver medals and helped the hosts make a clean sweep of all the six gold medals at the 29th SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Yan won the hoop and clubs final, adding to the team and individual all-around gold which she won on Sunday.
“Winning at home in front of family and friends means a lot to me,” said the Kuantan-born gymnast. “I’m happy with my performance and contribute to my country’s medal haul. It wasn’t easy as I had to compete against my own team-mates.”
Team-mate Izzah Amzan came second while Thailand’s Thanyaphat Sungvornyothin took bronze.
However, Yan had to settle for a silver in ball apparatus, which was won by Amzan while Indonesian Nabila Evandestiera finished third.
The 18-year-old also picked up a silver in ribbon final, won by her team-mate Amy Kwan Dict Weng while Thailand’s Panjarat Prawatyotin came third.
