VIENTIANE – Singapore stormed to a predictable sweep of the men’s and women’s teams table tennis golds, smashing Thailand 3-0 in both finals Thursday at the Convention Hall of the National University in Vientiane. The men’s team had been worked hard by the Vietnamese in their semifinal earlier in the day, but won the tie 3-2. The women’s team had no such troubles, brushing past Malaysia 3-0 to make their semifinals. The players have a day’s rest before the doubles competitions begin Saturday, followed by the singles rounds Sunday. Singapore are on course to equal their perfect seven golds from seven events at the 2007 SEA Games.
