MANILA: National swimmer Phee Jinq En set a new national and SEA Games record en route to winning her second swimming gold medal at the Philippines SEA Games.

The United States-based swimmer clocked 1:08.50 to dip under her own SEA Games record of 1:09.00 when she won the women's 100m breaststroke event at the 2017 SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur.

Jinq En also went under her own national record of 1:08.65 set at the Malaysian Open in KL in 2016.

Christie Chue of Singapore got the silver in 1:09.06 while Thailand's Nisha Kukanakorn won bronze in 1:10.70.

Jinq En won the 50m breaststroke gold last week and this is the 48th gold medal for Malaysia at the SEA Games in the Philippines.
