Is Farah Ann Abdul Hadi on her way out from the gymnastic world?
The question of whether Farah Ann has retired from the gymnastic world came to surface when she was reportedly not attending training sessions in Bukit Jalil. Her coach, Ng Shu Wai has confirmed that Farah Ann has opted to stop her training sessions with the international squad.
When asked, Shu Wai explained the reasons why Farah Ann has decided to quit training with the international squad.
“She said that she cannot catch up with the training load and the changes of the rules.”
He revealed that Farah Ann has discussed the matter with his team multiple times and they had eventually accepted her decision to quit performing 2 weeks ago.
Her decision to quit training has given a hint that it’s only a matter of time before she decides to bid farewell to the world sports arena. According to a report by Astro Awani, Shu Wai did not eliminate the possibility of her completely leaving the sports world. This is because she had mentioned retiring after her appearance in the Tokyo Olympic Sports 2020.
Shu Wai also said that Farah Ann has ongoing injury issues but the recovery process is on track as her skills have returned. However, she eventually decided to not join the training anymore. You can listen to Shu Wai’s comment below.
