Looks like Penang is on course to dump Defending Champion Selangor to win the Overall title. Will KL do Selangor a big favour in Round 5 battle since KL is paired against Penang in several categories. While, KL has an outside chance in the Overall title race but their representatives in some Individual categories who are not performing up to expectation must win the remaining 2 rounds.
The medal analysis listed above is based solely on the current position after completing this morning round. It should not be misconstrued as my personal analysis or opinion on the medal standing in the ongoing MSSM 2011. May the best performing state collectively be the Overall Champion!
