She’s really taking women empowerment onto the next level.
Youngest Malaysia Artistic Gymnast Farah Ann Abdul Hadi proves that she’s more than just pretty face. First, she made us proud when she brought Malaysia’s first-ever gold medal during her outing in the Ukraine International Cup 2019, having won gold on Uneven Bars and Silver on Floor Exercise.

But, now she has finally broken Malaysia records by becoming the first Malaysian woman artistic gymnast to qualify for Olympics after 20 years.
The Star reported that the 25-year-old made the cut by finishing 16th out of 20 qualifiers in the qualifying session at the World Championships in Germany on Saturday, and there are seven criteria for selection in total.
Previously, the women gymnast category was represented by Au Li Yen, she was last featured in 2000 Sydney Game.
Farah expressed her gratitude in one of her Instagram post, saying that her 8 years old dream finally came true. She also thanked her family and friends who have been very supportive of her journey, and without the guide from the two most important people in her life, her coaches Ms Nataliya and Ng Shu Wai, she would never make it this far.
The 2o20 Summer Olympics scheduled to take place in Tokyo, Japan.
