SEA Games: Singapore’s Fong Kay Yian and Mira Dewan finish fifth and sixth in women’s 1m springboard finals

HANOI: The face mask she wore did little to hide the disappointment etched across Fong Kay Yian’s face as she spoke to reporters after finishing fifth at the SEA Games in the women’s 1m springboard finals on Sunday (May 8).

The event, held at the Aquatics Sports Palace in Hanoi, Vietnam, was won by Malaysia’s Nur Dhabitah Sabri, with compatriot Kimberly Bong taking silver. Vietnam’s Ngo Phuong Mai clinched bronze.

Nur Dhabitah’s gold is Malaysia’s first in this edition of the Games.

“Honestly, I think I could have done a lot better. In terms of trying to get used to the environment here, it was quite a big change for us,” Fong said. 

She acknowledged there was room for improvement in her dives, which saw her score a total of 204.25.

“In general, I feel like all the dives could have been much, much better. Because actually leading up Games and even training over here, my dives were not this standard, I would say. It could be a lot better than this.”

Fong’s compatriot Mira Dewan sixth in the event (181.65). The 20-year-old was making her Games debut.This is Fong’s fifth Games. She has a total of one gold, two silvers and two bronzes to her name, all across 3m springboard events.
