Farah Ann is Malaysia’s National Olympian Gymnast and anyone would be lucky to catch her performance live. But for those who have already seen her compete, that may be your last time as it is rumoured she is retiring.
The news of Farah Ann retiring from the world of Gymnastics came about after it was reported that the Gymnast had not been attending training at Bukit Jalil for the past 2 weeks according to her coach.
Farah’s coach, Ng Shu Wai told Awani that Farah has previously expressed her plans for retirement after presenting at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. “Farah recently told us that is she is quitting and as of right now, we must respect her decision. She has discussed this matter with us a lot of times and we’ve accepted her decision 2 weeks ago,” said Ng Shu Wai. However, there is no official statement from Farah Ann herself regarding the news of her retirement.
As you may know, Farah Ann took up gymnastics at the age of 3 and started competing at the national level competition SUKMA Games. Last year, the 2019 SEA Games Gold Medalist said that she’s taking a break from competitive gymnastics after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to recover by not straining herself too much, so that she’ll be able to come back stronger.
The 27-year-old gymnast made her Olympics debut at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics scoring a total score of 48.565 points to finish 68th out of 85 female gymnasts competing in the qualifying event. Farah Ann has achieved so much at such a young age so whatever she decides in the end will be her decision and she’ll definitely still have the love and support of her fans.
Until we hear from Farah Ann herself regarding this news, we wish her all the best in her future endeavours, whatever they may be.
