Shooter Nur Suryani Resolves To Improve Performance At SEA Games

PETALING JAYA, Nov 9 (Bernama) -- After a one-year layoff national shooter Nur Suryani Mohd Taibi tries not to think so much of winning medals in the Myanmar SEA Games but more importantly to improve her performance.

Hailed from Perak, Nur Suryani, who stayed away from the sport after giving birth in September last year, was placed 34th out of 56th in the women's 10-meter air rifle competition in the London Olympics 2012 while in her eight-month pregnancy.

"As in the last SEA Games, I'm making preparation as usual to ensure that I'll be in top form for the challenge," he told reporters at the National Shooting Range in Subang, Saturday.

Nur Suryani, 30, clinched two gold medals through women's 50m rifle three-positions and 10m air rifle events at the 26th SEA Games in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, Nur Suryani, who took part in the 37th Southeast Asian Shooting Championship at the National Shooting Range here, described the competition as a warm up before the SEA Games.

"Thank God, until today I managed to collect four gold medals and I hope it is a good start before going to Myanmar," she said.

The navy officer today bagged two golds from women's 50m rifle pron individual and team (along with Haslisa Hamed and Muslifah Zulkifli) events.

The trio created a record by collecting 1,764 points, eight points more that the marks earned by Nur Suryani and her partners, Haslisa and Nur'Ain Ibrahim in the 2007 championship.

Yesterday, Nur Suryani collected two golds from women's 10m air rifle individual and team events.
