Here We 'Gold' Again At The 2021 Hanoi SEA Games!

Another day, Another slay by our APU Athletes! Go Team Malaysia!

The diving camp continued their gold medal hunt yesterday (9 May 2022), with Ong Ker Ying (APU student) making a grand entry into the SEA Games stage by harvesting another Gold Medal with her partner Wendy Ng Yan Yee with their outstanding performance which dominates the women’s 3m springboard synchronised event at My Dinh Aquatic Centre.

Ker Ying-Yan Yee, who are partnering for the first time on international stage, dived into victory with 276.30 points to hand Malaysia its fourth diving gold medal at the Hanoi SEA Games.

The 20-year-old Ker Ying, who is currently our degree level 1 student in Accounting and Finance, was over the moon to make it to the top despite this being only her first competition after three years.

Ker Ying was roped into the national elite squad after attaining gold in the 3m springboard synchro with Loh Zhiayi at the Asian Diving Cup in KL back in 2019.

She had also snagged a gold in the 1m springboard individual at the same championship, however the pandemic put a stop to any chance of more international exposure.

Ker Ying has another chance to claim another gold when she competes in the women’s individual 3m springboard today.

A Huge Congratulation to Ong Ker Ying and Ng Yan Yee and wishing them best of luck for their upcoming game! Go Team Malaysia!
