Team Singapore’s J80 open match racing team won all three of their round-robin matches on Sunday to take command at the top of the rankings ahead of Monday’s action. Skippered by Maximilian Soh, the crew of Andrew Paul Chan, Russell Kan, Christopher Lim and Justin Wong continued their good form so far at the Wangsan Sailing Marina in Incheon, raising hopes they can go on to medal glory.
In the final round of the Men’s Individual Golf competition, Johnson Poh shot an impressive three under-par round of 69 at the Dream Park Country Club to finish the competition tied in 16th place, five under for the tournament. Jonathan Woo also carded a 69 to rise up the leaderboard and finish in T26, one under-par for the tournament, level with fellow Singaporean Marc Ong, who shot 73 on Sunday. Gregory Raymund Foo’s 73 left him in T29. The combined results of Singapore’s Men’s golfers were good enough to earn them a seventh placed ranking in the team competition.
In the Men’s 100m Semifinals at the Incheon Asiad Stadium, Singapore’s Muhammad Amirudin Bin Jamal rewrote his season best record time of 10.61 yesterday by shaving off 0.01 seconds, but that was not enough for him to earn a place in the final as he finished 16th.
