Natthaphong Phonoppharat and Audrey Yong have claimed the RS:X windsurfing gold medals at the 28th South East Asian Games, held in Singapore.

In the last day of competition, the pressure was on and the breeze up. The RS:X Men's medal race was a two-way battle for silver, as Thailand's Natthaphong Phonoppharat already had gold in the bag.

Therefore, the medal race was all about smart decision-making, with the points difference giving all to play for. Leonard Ong, from Singapore, excelled under the pressure and managed the fleet skillfully, to seize the medal race win and celebrate silver medal success. Sulaksana Oka wrapped up bronze.

Another great spectacle in the RS:X Women's medal race, as an epic clash unfolded between Singapore and Thailand, who went into the race a mere one point apart.

Audrey Yong dug deep, giving everything on the race track, to claim the medal race win and gold under the eyes of home fans. Ever present in attack, Siripon Kaewduang-Ngam couldn't exploit the medal race opportunity and secured silver. Bronze went to Hoiriyah.
