LONDON – Malaysian archer Khairul Anuar Mohamed hopes to be in great form today when he faces his next opponent in the 2012 London Olympic Games men’s individual archery pre-quarterfinal round, Great Britain’s Larry Godfrey.

Mohamed went into a two-day break after successfully qualifying for the competition’s round of 16.  If he wins against his British opponent, he will face either Norway’s Baard Nesteng or Japan’s Takaharu Furukawa in the quarterfinals. Included in his group is world champion Im Dong-hyun of South Korea, who is the top seed in the competition.

Pondering on his match against Godfrey, Mohamed admitted that he is taking a tough road as he gets to encounter archers that are, according to him, “very good”. He is focusing on getting past his British opponent first before thinking of the quarterfinals.

The Malaysian archer remarked that his form on the day of the match is highly important. Having gone through a two-day break, he hopes that the rest period has not affected his form, as he states that even a very small mistake can affect his winning chances.

Mohamed’s world ranking is in fifth while Godfrey is currently 10th. The Malaysian medal hopeful believes that in the competition, rankings do not have much effect. He noted the case of South Korean archers, who are world record-breakers but ended up bagging the bronze medal in this Olympics’ team event.

Meanwhile, London will see more Malaysian athletes competing in diving and track cycling today.

Ng Yan Yee will compete in the individual 3m springboard diving preliminaries event in a bid for a final round qualification. Malaysia’s first women cyclist Fateha Mustapha will take part in the keirin competition.
