PETALING JAYA: Malaysia’s recurve trio of Khairul Anuar Mohamad, Atiq Bazil Bakri and Haziq Kamaruddin bounced back from their disastrous individual showing to reach the team semi-finals in the World Cup in Antalya, Turkey.
It was Malaysia’s best showing this season, having lost in quarter-finals at the season-opening leg in Shanghai followed by a first-round exit in Medellin, Colombia, last month.
Malaysia opened their first-round campaign by scoring an upset 5-3 (52-58, 57-52, 54-54, 54-53) win over London Olympics gold medallists Italy. They then went on to beat Asian Games rivals China 5-3 (56-57, 54-54, 58-54, 58-54) to book their spot in the last four.
But the Malaysians’ fine run came to an end when they succumbed 0-6 (54-59, 52-56, 52-58) to South Korea, led by world No. 1 Oh Jin-hyek.
Malaysia will face Japan, who lost 4-5 in the semi-finals to Russia, in the bronze medal playoff tomorrow.
