The bronze went to Sarawak’s Edison Wong Sing Yen with a score of 9.5130.
“It has been a great experience for me at the SUKMA where yesterday, I defended my title in the Taijichuan for three consecutive editions (2016, 2018 and 2022),” said the 2021 SEA Games gold medallist.
“And today, I won gold in the men’s Taijijian. It is a great feeling to win two gold medals for sure.”
