Two silvers in the bag for teens in muay thai

MALAYSIA are assured of at least two silver medals when two national teenage muay thai exponents marched into the finals that will take place tomorrow.

In the semi-final action at the Vinh Phuc Sports Centre yesterday, Nur Amisha Azrilrizal advanced to the final of the women’s elite below 51kg category after downing Cambodia’s Soeng Moeuy 30-27.

The 19-year-old Amisha, who won a bronze in the 2019 edition in the Philippines, will face Srila Oo Wansawang after the Thai girl defeated Vietnam’s Thuy Phuong Thi Trieu 29-28.

Meanwhile, Ahmad Nor Iman Aliff Rakib confirmed his spot in the final after eliminating Filipino Ariel Lee Lampacan 30-27 in the men’s elite below 54kg semi-finals.

The 18-year-old Malaysian will take on Huynh Hoang Phi in the title showdown after the Vietnamese exponent ousted Thailand’s Sakchai Chamchit 30-27. — Bernama
