Athlete's of the Year Award

What a surprise!! Our national rifle shooter, Nur Suryani Mohd Taibi won the Sportswriters Association of Malaysia (SAM) - 100PLUS Athlete of the Year award for 2011 yesterday. As the winner for this award, Suryani took home rm10,000 and a crystal trophy.



This news attract my attention because a WOMAN won that award. That's mean woman can also be as good as man OR BETTER than them.. =) and the another reason is Suryani were competing with other great athletes such as no. 1 Lee Chong Wei and also no. 1 Nicol David, and still... she won it. Congrates Suryani.

Recently, Suryani became the first Malaysian woman rifle shooter to qualify for the London Olympics. She was qualified for the Olympic after earning a quota spot at the Asian Shooting Championships in Doha for the women's 10m air rifle.
