Misplaced jacket forces gold medallist shooter out of CWG
Malaysia suffered a huge blow as its Commonwealth Games shooting gold medallist Nur Ayuni Farhana Abdul Halim was not allowed to compete in Glasgow Games as her jacket was lost en route to Scotland.
Ayuni, who won the gold medal with Nur Suryani Taibi in the 10m air rifle doubles event in New Delhi four years ago, was to compete in the 10m air rifle and 50m rifle prone events.
"She was a gold medallist last time and now she won't even get a chance to compete. It is really painful for her. I just feel so sorry for her," team manager Musa Omar was quoted as saying by Malaysian media Tuesday.
"We made a report when her bag did not arrive with the other luggage. We waited for three days... (Tuesday) is the last day for us to confirm the names."
"The rules clearly state that a rifle shooter must wear a jacket. We tried to borrow one but it did not fit her. We tried to make a new one but she said that she would need two months to get used to it," Musa lamented.
Musa said the Malaysian gold winner was inconsolable.
"This is all so unfortunate. She's taking it badly. She is sad, we are all sad."
