Shooter eyes Olympic debut in Tokyo Games


KUCHING: National junior shooter, Nur Zunaira Zakaria, 20, of Selangor, is targeting to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

She is determined to fufil her dream of competing in the Olympics after seeing the success of national elite shooter Jonathan Wong who qualified for the 2016 Rio Olympics.

“After seeing him qualify for the Olympic Games, I also cherish my own Olympics dream which is what I desire when I took up the sport,” she said. On the third day of the shooting competition in the 18th Malaysia Games (Sukma) at the Sarawak Shooting Range here yesterday, she won two gold medals for Selangor, the first in the women’s 10m air pistol. — Bernama
