Nur Suryani Mohamed Taibi will enter the London Olympic Games as Malaysia’s best bid for a gold medal in shooting. She is an accomplished shooter who has won various shooting events titles in the Southeast Asian Games and Asian Shooting Championships. Taibi specializes in 10m air rifle and 50m rifle three position events. She is widely considered as a unique contender for the Olympics, being a woman who is 8 months pregnant.
Shooting For the Gold Medal
Taibi is Malaysia’s rising star shooter. Her impressive credentials include her 2011 Southeast Asian Games gold medals in 10m air rifle and 50m rifle 3 position. Taibi secured her Olympic qualification in 10m air rifle after she finished fifth in the 2012 Asian Shooting Championships. Due to her pregnancy, she did not qualify in the 50m rifle three position – an event which will require her to lie down.
Pregnancy Not A Hindrance to Gold Medal Goal
Despite her pregnancy, Taibi’s remarkable competence in shooting makes her a strong Olympic contender. Reports of her pregnancy have fascinated both her compatriots and the international audience, as she will hold the distinction of being among the few pregnant women who joined the Olympics. When asked about her fitness to participate in the Olympics, she said that “The doctors say I am very good and very fit and it is OK for me to train up to eight months or nine months.” Her pregnancy does not hinder her from targeting the gold medal, as she always ensures that she is in a healthy shape to take part in the Olympics.
