GLASGOW: Shooter Nur Suryani Taibi showed that she is still a force to be reckoned with after winning a bronze medal in the women’s 10m air rifle event at the Barry Buddon Shooting Range.
The other Malaysian who made it to the top-eight final was Johnathan Wong but he was the second one to be eliminated from the race.
There were no medals in the 25m pistol event although Malaysia had two qualifiers – Bibiana Ng and Alia Sazana Azahari – in the final.
Bibiana was eliminated early but debutant Alia gave rousing performances and went on until the bronze medal playoff before losing 10-9 to Australia’s Lalita Yauhleuskaya in a tie-break after both were tied at 13-13.
