SHARUL AIMY WINS MALAYSIA'S FIRST EVER MEDAL AT THE 2024 ASIAN MEN'S ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS CHAMPIONSHIP

KUALA LUMPUR, May 19 (Bernama) -- National gymnast Muhammad Sharul Aimy Kamaru Hisam won Malaysia’s first ever medal at the 2024 Asian Men’s Artistic Gymnastics Championship in Tashkent, Uzbekistan today. 

The 22-year-old won the bronze in the men’s vault event with 14.4666 points, behind gold medallist Carlos Yulo of the Philippines (14.883 points) and Uzbekistan’s Abdulaziz Mirvaliev (14.783 points), who won the silver.

Unfortunately, his achievement is not enough to secure him a place at the upcoming 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, according to Malaysian Gymnastics Federation (MGF) vice president Francis Loh Soong Park, as Muhammad Sharul only participated in one event while the Olympic slot would be given to the winner of the men’s all-around event.

“This is an excellent performance because this is the first time we got a medal from the Asian Championships, and he (Muhammad Sharul) landed perfectly today,” he told Bernama.

Francis added that the MGF would focus on helping Muhammad Sharul to excel in the all-around event to boost his chances of competing at the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, the United States.
