Back Up Divers Can Rise To The Occassion In Myanmar - Pandelela

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 20 (Bernama) -- National diver Pandelela Rinong is optimistic that divers from the National back up squad were capable of winning gold medals in the Myanmar SEA Games diving competition, next month.

The 2012 London Olympics bronze medallist said back up divers were capable of rising to the occasion and expressed confidence that the back up divers would not return home empty handed.

"I hope the divers given the opportunity to represent the country in the SEA Games will not waste the chance.

They must use the opportunity to gain experience to improve their skills in the future," she told reporters after being crowned Universiti Malaya Sportswoman of the year, Tuesday night.

Pandalela who is pursuing a degree in Sports Science at University Malaya will be competing in the 10m platform individual in Myanmar.

The Sarawakian said she would need to be at her very best form this year to excel in the Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea and the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in Scotland, next year.

Apart from Pandelela, divers who will be on the flight to Myanmar are Leong Mun Yee, Cheong Jun Hoong, Wendy Ng Yee, Nur Dhabitah Sabri, Loh Zhiayi (women) and Ooi Tze Liang, Muhd Amsyar Azman, Chew Yi Wei, Danial Sabri and Muhd Nazreen Abdullah (men).
