National archers Khambeswaran Mohanaraja, Mohd Juwaidi Mazuki and Zulfadhli Ruslan won a gold medal in the men’s compound event at the SEA Games yesterday.
The trio claimed the men’s team compound title by defeating Vietnam’s Nguyen Van Day, Nguyen Tien Cuong and Thach Phi Hung 224-216 at the Clark Parade Grounds, New Clark City.
This marks the third win in three years for Malaysia, we also took home golds in the 2015 Singapore SEA Games and the 2017 KL SEA Games.
20-year-old Khambeswaran substituted Syahrizan Jaafar in the team event. The Penangite made headlines earlier this year when he made our nation proud at the Asian Archery Championships in Bangkok in November. He didn’t disappoint in the SEA Games.
Well done, Khambeswaran!
