National fencer Peng Kean to train in China after Rome
KUALA LUMPUR: Olympics-bound national fencer Yu Peng Kean who is now undergoing training in Rome, will be heading to Guangzhou, China for more intensive training with his coach Rao Bin.
"His Italian stint will end on June 17 and after that he will head directly to Guangzhou where he will train until July 21," said National Sports Council Elite Sports Division manager Noor Azman Mohd Kassim, when contacted by Bernama today.
He said Peng Kean and another national fencer, Nurul Arriezat Ismail, were training with fencing associations and clubs in Italy.
"Peng Kean is focusing more on sparring because he wil be competing in the sabre individual event," he said.
Peng Sean qualified on merit for this year's London Olympics after finishing ninth and seventh respectively in the Asian Fencing Championship in 2010 and 2011.
Peng Kean, 21, is the second Malaysian fencer to compete in the Olympics after Ronnie Theseira who competed in the individual foil, epee and sabre events at the Tokyo Games in 1964. -- BERNAMA
