NILAI: Fatehah Mustapa smashed her national record to bag the women's 500m time trial gold medal at the Nilai Velodrome here.

She clocked 34.542 sec to erase her previous national mark of 34.667 sec set at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.

It was the third gold medal for Fatehah after winning the team sprint and sprint titles earlier.

Meanwhile, Mohd Fadhil Mohd Zonis clinched his second SEA Games track cycling gold medal after winning the men's 1km time trial final.

Fadhil posted 1:01.889 min to deny Melbourne-based cyclist Muhd Shah Firdaus Sahrom.

Shah Firdaus, who finished second behind Azizulhasni Awang in the men's sprint on Monday, posted 1:02.356 min.

Malaysia has raked in eight out of 10 gold medals on offer in track cycling so far.
