I am separating this part from the original news released by BERNAMA from the same post on the today.

London 4th August 2012 – National archer Khairul Anuar Mohamad, who is making his Olympics debut,missed a semifinal slot after he bowed out 2-6 to Takaharu Furukawa of Japan in the quarterfinals of the men’s Recurved Individual event at the Lord’s Cricket Ground here.

Strong winds at the venue effected Khairul Anuar’s concentration besides having contend with Furukawa, who has seen Olympics action three times.

However, the world number 20 can take comfort in knowing that he equaled his seniorCheng Chu Sian’s achievement in the 2008 Beijing Olympics as both the Malaysians became stranded at the quarter-final stage.

Early in the day, he had beaten three times Olympian Larry Godfrey of Britain 6-5, after collecting a bull-eye, 10 points, in the shoot-off when both archers were tied with 136-136 points in the five ends, to make the quarterfinals.
