Tiny Izzah sweeps four golds at SportExcel meet

PETALING JAYA: Sometimes little things can pack a big punch. 

And petite Izzah Amzan proved just that when she almost made it a clean sweep of the medals in the junior category at the SportExcel Rhythmic Gymnastics Champ­ionships Circuit 1 with four golds and one silver. 

Izzah of the Federal Territories did enough to land the gold in the ball (14.750), hoop (13.600), ribbon (14.350) at Gym 1, National Sports Council in Bukit Jalil. 

However, the 13-year-old national development gymnast who won gold (team) and silver (ball) at the recent Sukma in Perlis earlier this month had to settle for silver in the clubs with 13.300.

Selangor’s Shak Yuki took the gold with 13.800 while her compatriot Chong Lok Yi took third with 13.250. Izzah’s scores put her in top spot to clinch the all-around individual title with a four apparatus total of 56.000.
