SUBANG: Junior shooter Leong Jia Chyuan outdid the seniors in the National Shooting Championships but there was little joy for the Selangor shooter. He will still not be considered for the Vietnam SEA Games in December.
Yesterday, the 20-year-old captured the gold medal in the air pistol individual, scoring 661.4 total. National shooters Hasli Izwan Amir Hasan of Perak came in second while Kelantan's Baharuddin Hashim came in third.
Jia Chyuan also bagged a gold in the team event to bring his medal tally to four in the national meet.
He also sizzled in the SportExcel-NSC-Milo national junior circuit, which is held concurrently with the national meet.
Yesterday, he broke the junior record en route to winning the air pistol individual.
He shot 563, one point better than his previous record set at the Malaysian Games (Sukma) in Sabah.
Although Jia Chyuan has been in sizzling form, the National Shooting Association of Malaysia (NSAM) have decided not to send juniors for the biennial Games.
NSAM executive secretary Jasni Shaari said: “We have decided not to send juniors for the SEA Games. Jia Chyuan is young and has many more SEA Games to look forward to. Besides, he has not met the SEA Games qualifying mark.”
