KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia have won a gold medal in the women’s team recurve event in the SEA Games, ending a 12-year drought in the archery competition.

The trio of Nur Aliya Ghapar, Nuramalia Haneesha Mazlan and Nur Afisa Abdul Halil beat defending champions Indonesia 5-1 in the final at the National Archery Range in Bukit Jalil on Monday.
