PETALING JAYA: It was nothing short of a stunning performance from the national equestrian athletes who galloped to a fine silver on leased horses in the FEI World Endurance Champion-ship for Young and Junior Riders in Ermelo, Holland. Faris Haikal Hassan Sa’ari, Yusuf Luqman Zakaria, Nur Qasrina Amani Zakaria, An-Nur Muhd Imran Eirfan Anuwar and Anfal Insyirah Abu Talib, riding on horses on loan from France as they could not bring their own due to border restrictions, clocked 19’11:16 in the 120km race. The French team secured gold in 16’57:27 while Belgium claimed the bronze medal with 20’43:03.
It is the first time Malaysia have made the podium in their fifth participation...
