First chess medal at 27th SEA Games

Malaysia got the first medal in the Traditional Team event. The team members are IM Mok Tze Meng,  Genkeswaran Muniyan and Kughan Ravindran. As there were only four countries for this rapid event, Malaysia only had to defeat the Laos team (which is hardly a chess nation) to obtain the bronze medals.

In the girls event, the Malaysian girls lost out to Myanmar, Thailand and Indonesia.

There will be more results coming up later and ASEAN chess is also being played right now.
