PETALING JAYA: It was a perfect day for Selangor’s Low Jia Huai in the MSSM (national schools) rhythmic gymnastics championship in Port Dickson.
The 16-year-old won both the golds – ball (12.733) and hoop (12.900) – contested in the senior category at the Dewan Wawasan, Port Dickson Polytechnic, on Tuesday.
Team-mate Alice Masdewi Cheah made it a 1-2 finish for Selangor by amassing 12.050 points (ball) and 11.467 (hoop).
Federal Territory (FT) ended the day with two bronzes, courtesy of Yong Wei Theng in the ball (11.833) and Yang Dina Khistina Kamarul Bahrin in the hoop (11.450).
Meanwhile, Youth Olympic Games-bound Olivia Tai Qing Tong got off to a decent start by finishing first in the hoop in the preliminary rounds of the junior category.
Representing FT, Olivia scored 14.600 points to finish ahead of team-mate Shasangari Sivaneswary Nagarajan (14.050) and Pahang’s Koi Sie Yan (12.850).
In the ball event, both Shasangari and Olivia posted identical 14.750 points. Fifteen-year-old Shasangari, however, managed to pip Olivia to the top spot by virtue of scoring a higher execution mark of 8.45 compared to Olivia’s 8.35.
