KUALA LUMPUR: A childhood dream to win a medal at the Asian Games for artistic gymnast Mohd Sharul Aimy may turn into reality in the absence of several top class rivals in Hangzhou.

Sharul qualified for his first Asiad after finishing sixth in the men’s vault final at the Asian Championships in Singapore in June under category B and having seen his competitors, the 22-year-old is up for the mission impossible in the competition at the Huanglong Sports Centre Gymnasium from Sept 24-29.
