The 29-year-old Nur Suryani Mohd Taibi from Perak - situated 125 miles north of Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur competed at the just concluded London Olympics due to have her first child on the 2nd of September 2012

She was her country's representative in the 10m rifle shooting event. With heavy determination, she did not look back in building on her past record as she was a former Commonwealth Games gold medalist, partnering Nur Ayuni Farhana Halim in the air rifle pairs at the 2010 Games in New Delhi.
In November last year, she won two gold medals in the Southeast Asian Games in the 10 metre air rifle and 50m rifle three position. 

The 29-year-old Suryani became the first woman shooter to represent Malaysia in the Olympics and also the athlete in the most advanced stage of pregnancy in Olympic history – competing in London when she was eight months pregnant.

Happy family
