Farah can be hopeful about qualifying for 2020 Olympics

Well done: Farah Ann Abdul Hadi bowed out of the Asiad with a creditable fifth place in the uneven bars final at the JI Expo in Kemayoran yesterday.

ARTISTIC gymnast Farah Ann Abdul Hadi has every reason to be optimistic about her bid to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games after a successful outing at the Asian Games.

The 24-year-old Farah bowed out of the Asiad with a creditable fifth place in the uneven bars final after a solid show without any flaws that earned her 13.200 points at the JI Expo in Kemayoran yesterday.

Farah qualified in last place for the eight-woman final but managed to improve by three spots to her delight.

“I think I have done well and I’m very pleased with that,” said Farah.

“My results are so much better compared to the Games in Incheon four years ago.

“A fifth-place finish is good considering I did not even qualify for this apparatus last time.

“I made the floor final in Incheon and finished seventh.

“I just couldn’t have asked for a better campaign. The team finished sixth and I kept my seventh place in the individual all-around, but with an improved score.

“These are all positive signs as I’m aiming to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics, where the qualification period will begin soon.”
