Malaysia made it four gold medals out of four at the 2021 SEA Games in Hanoi, Vietnam, after the national diving team emerged victorious on Monday.
Firstly, Ooi Tze Liang, who already bagged one gold medal in the men's synchronised three-metre springboard final with Chew Yi Wei yesterday, scored an impressive 377.70 points from six dives to take home the win in the men's one-metre springboard event.
Fellow Malaysian diver Bertrand Rhodict Anak Lises initially finished fourth, but upon review, he was promoted to third place with 284.90 points to join Ooi on the podium.
He narrowly missed out on silver with Singapore's Avvir Tham Pac Lun recording 286.40 points.

Later in the day, Ng Yan Yee and Ong Ker Ying finished ahead of Vietnam and Singapore with 276.39 points to bag a gold medal in the women's synchronised three-metre springboard event.
Diving, one of Malaysia's dominant sports, was the first sport at Hanoi 2021 to offer medal chances.
Malaysia also picked up gold and silver medals in the women's individual one-metre springboard final thanks to Nur Dhabitah Sabri and Kimberly Bong.
