Bishan Stadium, Wednesday, June 10, 2015 — Timothy Tay and Gregory Gan emerged 6th and 7th out of eight competitors in the 28th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games men’s parallel bars final.
Timothy Tay scored 13.433 while Gregory Gan was 0.167 behind him with a 13.266 showing. Although both men did not finish on the podium for this event, they were part of the team that clinched a bronze medal in the men’s team event on the first day of the artistic gymnastics competition.
On his performance, Gregory commented, “I think it was all right. It was as per usual. Although I couldn’t compete with the other competitors because they have much higher start values and more complicated skills than I do, for me, it’s my own personal best. I try to beat my own previous record.”
Vietnam’s Phuong Thanh Dinh and Phuoc Hung Pham emerged champion and third respectively while Thailand’s Rartchawat Kaewpanya came in second.
