AGU Media, DOHA (QAT): Malaysia’s rhythmic gymnast Chong Lok Yi will be looking forward to win medals at the SEA Games which will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from August 19-30.
“It’s my first SEA Games. I’m quite excited. I need to be consistent and help my country make a clean sweep of all the six gold medals,” Lok Yi told www.thestar.com.
Besides Lok Yi, Koi Sie Yan, Amy Kwan Dict Weng and Izzah Amzan will represent the hosts in the multi-discipline competition.
Sie Yan and N Shasangari Sivaneswary were joint gold medallists in the individual all-around in Singapore two years ago.
“I’ve two major challenges. First, the event and then studies. I hope to do well in both. It’s all about striking the right balance,” said the 17-year-old, who won a gold in the clubs event at the Asean Schools Games in Singapore last month.
Lok Yi joined the national junior team at 12, but almost left the sport in the first year.
“It was difficult to cope with the training sessions. I was too scared. But I won a bronze in the clubs in 2012. It helped me to stay in the sport,” said Lok Yi.
Malaysia’s best outing in rhythmic gymnastics was at the 2001 KL Games when they made a clean sweep of all six gold medals.
