The Indonesian pair fought back brilliantly with 442 in their sixth and final game to seal victory with 2561. Lim and Tan suffered a poor 333 in their final game to drop out of contention. Singapore's first pair of Singles gold medallist, Cherie Tan and New Hui Fen stormed home to snatch the silver medal with 2490.

The third Singapore pair of Daphne Tan and Shayna Ng clinched the bronze medal with 2464. The first Malaysian pair of Siti Safiyah Amirah and Shalin Zulkifli tought they had overhauled one of the Singapore pairs to snatch the bronze only to be disppointed to find out they in fact tied fourth position with Lim and Tan on 2456.

"We have been training very hard back in Indonesia under our new coach, Purvis (Granger) and were advised to just concetrate on making good shots," said the 26-year-old Tannya Roumimper in her third SEA Games appearance.

"We missed the gold at the last games and we were determined to do better this time round. We're so happy to have won the first gold medal for our country after a disappointing first day."

"We kept pushing each other and encouraging each other throughout the six games and we never gave up our hope of winning the gold," said the 32-year-old Limansantoso, who is also making her third SEA Games appearance.

"There are many more events to come and we'll continue to put in our whole-hearted effort in the hope of take home more medals."
