Burma’s Chin top archer likely to retire in 2014
17 December 2013: Aung Ngeain, winner of a gold medal in archery for Burma in the 27th SEA Games, suggested that she would call it a day next year.
In a media interview, the 28-year-old Chin archer indicated that her time had come to say farewell to sports after 11 years.
She said that she wanted to retire in 2014, adding: “But I don’t know how my bosses, on their part, will decide about it, too.”
According to the New Light of Myanmar, U Kyaw Oo, Chef-de-Mission of Burma, said that he would ask her to be a coach of the country’s archery team.
Ngeain had said that she would quit after the 2011 SEA Games. To this, U Kyaw Oo said that he had made a request to continue her career until after the 27th SEA Games hosted by Burma.
Yesterday, she won a gold medal in the women’s compound individual archery after beating the Indonesian finalist.
She ascribed her victory to self-confidence, adding: “I had no worries about the game because I was determined to succeed.”#
