Singapore's Jonathan Au Eong wins historic gold in men's individual foil
National fencer Jonathan Au Eong won a historic gold medal in the men's individual foil at the SEA Games on Sunday (May 15) after beating Filipino Nathaniel Perez 15-7 in the final at Hanoi's My Dinh Indoor Games Gymnasium.
To book his spot in the final, the 21-year-old had beaten Malaysia's 2019 silver medallist Hans Yoong 15-11 in the semi-final.
Before these Games, Singapore's best-ever result in the event had been a silver medal.
Teammate Jessica Ong clinched the silver in the women's sabre individual event earlier on Sunday after losing to Vietnam's Bui Thi Thu Ha 15-11 in the final.
