Thailand (72-86-88) and Vietnam (58-50-60) remained as steady performers as second- and third placers, respectively, Singapore couldn't be sneezed at with a 57-58-73 tally while Indonesia (38-63-90) finished with a comfortable lead over the Philippines at fifth.

He said full support should be given to the athletes because they were Malaysians. The Red-and-White squad's gold medal tally is lower than the targeted 55 gold medals and even below the achievement of the 2015 SEA Games, when Indonesia bagged 47 golds.

"We must be well prepared with a special effort".

He said that the 20-minute cultural presentation prepared by a noted organizer and funded by the Department of Tourism wouldn't matter as the Malaysian Southeast Asian Organizers Committee (MASOC) already finalized the program long before the Games started as it also coincided with the Malaysia's Independence Day celebration.
