More woes for Wan Nin as she is kneed out of Games

PETALING JAYA: Misfortune continues to dog top rhythmic gymnast Lee Wan Nin as she has been ruled out of the SEA Games.

Yesterday, the 16-year dislocated her knee cap during a training session and will be out of action for at least 10 days.

It is certainly a big blow for gymnastics as Wan Nin, who is making a comeback after a back injury picked up at the World Championships in Paris in September, had a chance to challenge for a gold medal in her first SEA Games.

With her withdrawal, Malaysia will not have any representative in the rhythmic gymnastics.

Team manager Petrina Low said that Wan Nin would now concentrate on her preparation for the Test Series in London in January. The top five in London will get a ticket to represent the country at the Olympic Games next year.

”It is unfortunate that this has happened to Wan Nin. She certainly cannot compete in the Games in this condition. But it is all right as the Test Series is more important,” said Petrina.

”She has time to recover and get back into top shape to mount a creditable showing in the Test Series.
“We hope she will not be bugged by injuries again.”
