To All,

As we are basking in the comfort of our homes (and offices), several (to be exact) youngsters have gone to Australia to polish our nation's future and hopes, by competing in the AYOF. Let's pray that they come home in good (and full with medals) hands, as they had made our country proud! Go Malaysia!

The Malaysian team consists of:
Men -Haziq Kamaruddin
-Muhamad Amirulfaiz Khairul
-Mohamed Faiz Farhan Abd Wahab

Women - Nur Amirah Mohamed
-Nurul Amanina Rosmay
-Fepriyentia Anuar

As for me, I shall strive my best to provide all of you with updates, and scores.

Day 3, 16 Jan 2009 - Mixed Team Events

Post  Admin on Fri Jan 16, 2009 4:38 pm

Hi,


Here's the latest update on the Mixed Team (new category) events. This is taken from the Australian Olympics Council webpage:

16th January 2009

The Chinese Taipei archery team got off to a strong start, beating Malaysia 205-202 in the men’s team semi-finals, placing them in a gold medal face-off with Great Britain tomorrow.

Team Australia, who lost to Great Britain 196-184 will now have to scramble for a bronze medal in tomorrow’s finals.

Othman Abd Wattab, coach for team Malaysia said, “They are very young. They are still new in this kind of event and will be quite nervous tomorrow.”

The three female teams from Australia, Great Britain and Malaysia have a bye today and will automatically enter the finals tomorrow due to the lack of teams available for today’s semi-finals.

Chinese Taipei continues to surpass expectations by winning the gold medal match in the mixed team match play today, with Australian archers filling the silver and bronze positions.
Taipei pair, Ya-Ting Tan and Yuan-Hsiang Ku overrode the Australian teammates Ryan Tyack and Ashley Sim, after winning 20-14 after 36 arrows. In the bronze match, Australia beat Malaysia 13-11.

“It’s pretty cool actually,” said silver medallist Ashley Sim. “I’ve never done it in a team before so it’s very interesting to win a medal with somebody else.”

This is the first year mixed pairs match play has been introduced in AYOF archery competitions.

Christina Zhou,
AOC


Although Malaysia faced a little bit of slack, losing by 3 points against powerhouses Chinese Taipei, yet I am convinced that Malaysia gave their best, today.. Let's hope they do better tomorrow! Malaysia boleh!

Day 4, 17 Jan 2009 - Individual Eliminations (Bronze and Gold)

Post  Admin on Sat Jan 17, 2009 2:07 pm

Hi,


Today's events are the most exciting yet. Although several Malaysian athletes (only Nur Amirah made it to Bronze Medal Match) missed out on the events today, I believe it's my duty to keep all of us informed. Here are the results of the latest events for today.


MEN'S GOLD MEDAL MATCH

Mark Nesbitt (GBR) bt. Ryan Tyack (AUS) : 99-98

Mark edged Ryan out by a single point, when he hit the bull's-eye, despite windy conditions. Mark was looking slightly nervous as he was in a one point deficit in the final end. Windy conditions also made things a little complicated, but Mark executed the shot well and gained himself a gold medal.

MEN'S BRONZE MEDAL MATCH

Alexander Wheeler (GBR) bt. Hsiu-Yu Hu (TPE) : 104-104 (10-9 in shoot-off)

Mark's fellow teammate Alex found himself in a stalemate, when tied with Hu 104-104 after the last arrow. All the tension was dissolved, when Alex shot a perfect 10, against Hu's 9.

WOMEN'S GOLD MEDAL MATCH

Shih-Chia Lin (TPE) bt. Ya-Ting Tan (TPE) : (100-96)

Things were less intense in this match, where Chinese-Taipei's Lin shot against fellow teammate Tan. Both of them gave the spectators a good game to watch, however, until Lin won against Tan. Congratulations Chinese-Taipei.

WOMEN'S BRONZE MEDAL MATCH

Alice Ingley (AUS) bt. Nur Amirah Mohamed (MAS) : 91-77

Nur Amirah, the only Malaysian archer left standing, was forced to work hard, after having to face Alice Ingley, in front of the home crowd. Nur Amirah gave a good fight, but however was forced to bow down to Alice, as she shot an incredible 91, to Nur Amirah's 77.


Now the archers are awaiting their next, and final event of the competition, which is the Team Eimination events, for both the Men and Women. Let's hope the Malaysian archers bring back Gold!

Day 4, 17 Jan 2009 - Team Eliminations (Bronze and Gold)

Post  Admin on Sat Jan 17, 2009 3:51 pm

Hi,


I now bring you the update of the Team Eliminations, for the Gold and Bronze medal matches.

MEN'S TEAM ELIMINATIONS (GOLD)


Wheeler/Wood/Nesbitt (GBR) bt. Hu\Ku\Yu (TPE) 195-190


MEN'S TEAM ELIMINATIONS (BRONZE)

Worth/Tyack/James (AUS) bt. Abd Wahab\Khairul\Kamaruddin (MAS) 190-175



WOMEN'S TEAM ELIMINATIONS (GOLD)

INGLEY/SIM/BARNARD (AUS) bt. Mohamed/Anuar/Rosmay (MAS) 191-161


WOMEN'S TEAM ELIMINATIONS (BRONZE)

Mohamed/Anuar/Rosmay (MAS) bt. Stewart/Nesbitt/Wood (GBR) 153-130


From what we could see here, the slightly under-performed Malaysian men faced defeat at the hands of Australia, in the Bronze medal match, leaving the men with nothing but souvenirs to come home with. But to mend theirs, and perhaps Malaysian coach Othman Wahab's tears are the success of the women, defeating Great Britain, to advance to the finals to meet hosts Australia at the team finals. They put up a good fight, but they could only be satisfied with the silver medal. At least there is a medal (and perhaps, plush toys) to bring home, as the Archery event comes to a close, today. Congratulations, Malaysia, and we shall all hope that they will be the catalysts of more Malaysian youngsters to excel in archery. Majulah Sukan Untuk Malaysia!

Congratulations

Post  Rain on Mon Jan 19, 2009 6:49 pm

My congratulations go to the Malaysian archers who had put aside their fear to compete against world-class athletes, of the same age as theirs, and producing positive, and promising results.. my hope is to see that archers take a more positive stand, look into themselves, not placing blames on others, and excel!
