She said Reuters “When I’m pregnant I don’t have problems, I enjoy it. My aim is to compete.”
Though some of the Malaysian shooter fans are worried about her condition and the danger that might cause to her and to her upcoming baby, Suryani got her husband solid support. Even her doctor gave her the tentative OK to compete in the game. Suryani is very confident even with her condition. "Maybe, at the end of June or whatsoever, if I have some problem that would jeopardize the baby inside me, I will reconsider whether I am going or not. But I feel I am strong and my husband says 'as long as you feel like that, energized to do that, it seems like that is your baby talking to you so you go.”
Suryani qualified for the Games at the Asian Shooting Championships in January, days after finding out she was pregnant. In addition, this Malaysian shooter has won two gold medals in Southeast Asian Games, a gold in New Delhi’s Commonwealth Games, as well as a few other awards.
"I will talk to the baby before I compete... 'no kicking, stay calm for one hour and 15 minutes only please,'" she said.
