The national archery squad is unofficially targeting to win at least two gold medals at the Laos SEA Games scheduled to begin in December.

The honorary secretary of the National Archery Association of Malaysia (NAAM), Abdul Hamid Hassan said that based on the current achievements of the national archers, it was not impossible for the national archery squad to win at least two gold medals in Laos."I'm confident that we don't have many obstacles in winning the gold in the men's recurve and group events," he told Bernama, here on Thursday.

Abdul Hamid said he had confidence in the capability of national archer Cheng Chu Sian who had won the gold medal in the same event at the Korat SEA Games in Thailand, last year."At the Korat SEA Games, we had won two gold medals for the two events, and I'm confident we can achieve the same feat this time too," he said.

However, he said, the final list of the archers who would represent the country at the biennial sports meet had not been decided and was expected to be announced by next week at the latest.-- BERNAMA
