Diving Squad And Suryani Optimistic Of Bringing Home Olympic Medals

SEPANG, July 24 (Bernama) -- The diving squad and national shooter Suryani Mohamed Taibi are optimistic of bringing back medals despite the various challenges to be faced at the London Olympics.

Although the diving squad were surprised that officials from Europe dominated the jury panel, Pandelela Rinong said the squad must avoid making minor errors during the preliminary rounds of the heats.

Referring to the complete list of the jury panel obtained from the website, Europe had the largest number of representatives with nine officials all together, including one from the host nation, Great Britain, she said.

"To me what's important is to make a good dive to convince the jury to give the best mark," Pandelela told reporters when met at the KL International Airport, here Monday night.

Meanwile, Suryani, who is in her eighth month of pregnancy, said she would be competing in the women's 10m Air Rifle event.
