Malaysian track cyclist Nurul Izzah Izzati Mohd Asri is undefeated in the women’s 500m time trial event at the Asian Track Cycling Championships. 

The cycling sensation recorded a time of 35.499s (achieving a top speed of 50.705 km/h) at the Indira Gandhi Sports Complex Velodrome, New Delhi, yesterday- making history as the first Malaysian to win gold in the women’s 500m time trial event. Congratulations Izzah!

Hailing from Sungai Petani, Kedah, the 19-year-old beat South Korea’s Kim Bomi and India’s Mayuri Dhanaraj, who respectively charted 36.374s and 36.481s in the event.

Podium

 

Izzah is a new addition to the national team and had only been called up to the backup squad at the start of the year.

The rising star has also caught the attention of Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu.

This morning, he took to his Twitter account to congratulate Izzah on her historic win.

“Congratulations! Young national women’s track cycling star Nurul Izzah Izzati Mohd Asri has made national track cycling history by winning gold in the 500m time trial event at the Asian Track Cycling Championships in New Delhi 2022,” he said.

 

Hot off the heels of her last win at the National Track Cycling Championships in May, Nurul Izzah is definitely one athlete to look out for.

In what she calls “the biggest win of her career“, Izzah took the gold in the individual sprint event when she sped past national elite Anis Amira Rosidi at the National Velodrome, Nilai.

When asked how she felt about going up against Anis, who has been on the national squad for the past few years, Izzah admitted to feeling nervous.

“I felt quite nervous because she (Anis) is also part of the national squad, and is older. She was also faster than me in the qualifying round,” she said.

“I didn’t expect to win the gold; my target was just to do the best that I could.”

 

Malaysia is rooting for you Izzah!
