Malaysia is not doing well even a poor country with little resources like Vietnam has a better medal tally.

It was simply a day of disappointment as the Malaysian contingent who started the medal quest in impressive style, picking up five of the 15 gold medals at stake Sunday, managed only a paltry two gold medals from the 49 on offer Monday.

Host Philippines remained at the top of the heap with 16 gold medals, followed by 2003 overall champions Vietnam with 13, Thailand and Malaysia have seven each while Indonesia and Singapore have five and two respectively

Malaysia's 10 silvers won Monday could have easily been gold if not for some unexpected results in Cebu, the venue for karate-do, the diving pool in Laguna, wushu and taekwondo arenas in Manila.

Wushu exponent Ho Robin, who was expected to deliver a gold Monday, only saw silver in the men's Nanquan event while Yeoh Ken Nee and Rossharisham Roslan who were strongly favoured to win the men's 3m Synchronised Springboard also suffered a similar fate.

Brian Nickson Lomas and James Sandayu were left in tears when the results of the 10m Synchronised Platform relegated them to silver medal winners although both were hoping to clinch the gold.

Elaine Teo who was tipped to lead the medal quest in taekwondo, was surprisingly shown the exit door in the first round of the 51-55kg Bantamweight category.

Karate-do exponents in Cebu where the men's and women's Kata teams were in action, also finished second best with four silver medals

The same story over and over again of disapointments and misses..anyway there is till a long way to go.
What is the latest medal tally?

Despite the millions poured into the sport and youth ministry over the years and having a "young and agressive" lawyer minister, a close relative of you-know-who, the Malaysian sport remains a goner, gone with the "win". What has gone wrong with our sports men n women? anyone has a clue or the balls to tell us, the tax payers.

Now, even the Viet is better than us. They have got a lot of medals in shooting, I guess?
