Although Malaysia finished third in men's 4x200m freestyle relay at the 2017 SEA Games on Thursday, Welson Sim swam away with yet another record.
Just a day after matching Joseph Schooling's time (1:47.79s) in 200m freestyle
, he claimed the record outright when he clocked 1:47.36s as the first swimmer, which gave Malaysia a temporary 1.20s lead.
Unfortunately for the 20-year-old, he could not celebrate his new record with a gold medal as Singapore pulled away in the remaining legs to win in 7:18.94s, more than six seconds ahead of Vietnam (7:25.32s) and Malaysia (7:26.91s).
Malaysia's other swimmers in the race were Yeap Zheng Yang, Lim Ching Hwang and Keith Lim Kit Sern.
