PETALING JAYA: Chances are slim but not zero for national recurve archer Mohd Zarif Syahiir Zolkepeli to try and qualify for the Paris Olympics.

Opportunities to earn a ticket to Paris are dwindling, but the 25-year-old Zarif remains hopeful that he, along with teammates Mohd Syafiq Mohd Arifin, Mohd Haiqal Danish Syamsul Affandi, and Mohd Firdaus Rusmadi, can still pull off a last-minute miracle.
