Farah remained grateful despite the failure

Her dream to advance to the finals in the all -around individual event was not achieved but the queen of national gymnasts, Farah Ann Abdul Hadi was satisfied with what she did.

At least the desire to compete in the Olympics was successfully realized, this time in Tokyo with a mesmerizing action at the Ariake Gymnastics Center.

However, the 27 -year -old athlete admitted that the untidy landing in the crossbar event was not in line a bit hampering the eye collection.

Farah finished the competition in 68th position out of 98 participants after collecting 48,565 points with only the best 25 gymnasts advancing to the finals.

He who shed tears right after the end of the competition thanked everyone for the support and it meant so much to him.

“I’m grateful to be able to compete here. I’ve done my best and am satisfied with this performance. But I admit I’m a little disappointed in the non -aligned crossbar action when the landing isn’t that good. Anyway I’m grateful,” he said.

In the action that took place yesterday, Farah started the action in the non -aligned cross discipline only scoring 11,600 points and got 11,566 for the bridge pole.

He then went down in his favorite event which was floor exercise grabbing 12.333 points and the highest points were earned in the vaulting event with a record of 13.166 points.

Farah Ann qualified for the Olympics after recording impressive results at the 2019 World Gymnastics Championships in Stuttgart, Germany.

He emerged the third Malaysian gymnast to qualify for the Olympics after Au Li Yen in the 2000 edition (Sydney) and Shu Wai in 2004 (Athens).

In addition to Farah Ann, also on the stage of the Tokyo Olympics, national men’s gymnast Jeremiah Loo Phay Xing who also made his debut after qualifying in the men’s all -around individual event last month.
