The gold medal-winning Malaysian archers.
Malaysian archers hit double gold


21 Aug 2017
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, August 21, 2017: As the archers marched out for battle, the background music was the inspirational “Eye of the Tiger”. Maybe “Eye of the Needle” would have been more appropriate – considering the unerring accuracy of the best archers from South East Asia.

Two finals - women’s and men’s recurve team - were contested in glorious sunny conditions on Monday at the National Sports Centre in Bukit Jalil. The competition venue and atmosphere was a credit to the organisers, and once again the fans were out in force, creating a noisy, flag-waving backdrop to the swift-moving action.

In the end, Malaysia added two more gold medals to their overall tally, leaving their regional rivals trailing after a blistering start in the race for SEA Games supremacy. The women were up first, and it was a close duel between Malaysia and Indonesia, whose three archers included the individual recurve champion, Diananda Choirunisa.

Malaysia dominated the first set, winning 58-50 to take the maximum two points, but the next two sets were shared 55-55 and 50-50 to leave the hosts the winners by 4-2. The gold medal-winning Malaysian trio was Nur Afisa Abdul Halil, Nur Aliya Ghapar and Nuramalia Haneesha Mazlan.

The Philippines, including 15-year-old women’s recurve individual silver medallist Nicole Tagle, claimed the bronze medal. The men’s team recurve featured Malaysia and Thailand in the final, with the Philippines already having won the bronze medal.

The Malaysian men showed much greater consistency than the Thais, after the first set had been shared 56-56 for one point each. Malaysia won the second set 55-49 and the third 53-50 to take the title 5-1 on points. The three members of the gold medal-winning Malaysian men’s team were Kamaruddin Haziq, Mohamad Khairul Anuar and Muhammad Akmal Nor Hasrin.
