KUALA LUMPUR: National junior gymnast Shasangari Sivaneswary clinched two golds and a silver to emerge the big winner in the juniors category at the Gymnastics Carnival Intercity Rhythmic Gymnastics Competition at Gym 1 in Bukit Jalil.
Shasangari’s haul on Sunday included the all-important individual all-around title which she easily wrapped up with a combined score of 53.649 ahead of Japan’s Akari Dozono (50.233) and fellow Malaysian Izzah Amzan (49.750).
Shasangari, 14, picked up where she left off on Saturday when she won the gold medal in the clubs event with a score of 13.200, ahead of team-mate Koi Sei Yan (12.800) and Izzah Amzan (12.750).
However, the diminutive Izzah was not to be discounted as she pipped Shasangari to the gold in the ribbon event after scoring 12.750 to the latter’s 12.700. Sei Yan was third with a 12.450 total.
In the seniors category, Amy Kwan Dict Weng was on fire, landing both the clubs and ribbon titles in style.
The 19-year-old was in her element in the ribbon, scoring 15.150 to finish well ahead of team-mate Wong Poh San (12.750) and Fatin Zakirah Jalany Zain Jalany (11.950).
Amy’s two wins on Sunday and in the hoop event on Saturday saw her stroll away with the individual all-around title with a combined score of 56.383 points. It was an all-Malaysian affair again as Poh San (51.816) and Fatin (50.416) completed the podium.
