Youth Olympic Games target for gymnasts

KUALA LUMPUR: The National Sports Council (NSC) have challenged Malaysian gymnasts to bring back the glory days and start a new era when the 13th Junior Rhythmic Gymnastics Asian Championships begin on Friday.

There is a lot riding at the championships, which will be held at Stadium Putra in Bukit Jalil from Feb 21-24. Apart from the 24 medals (9-9-9) at stake, the competition will also double up as the 2014 Nanjing Youth Olympic Games (Aug 16-28) qualifiers.
