Local Teen Shoots to Success at SEA Games

September 06, 2017

Marlborough College Malaysia pupil Abraham Eng, 15, has become the youngest ever marksman to win a medal at the recent SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur.


Abraham, who begins studying for his IGCSEs at Marlborough College Malaysia this term, achieved his silver medal in the double men’s trap event, competing against world-class adult shots and making history as the youngest shooting medalist in the 29 years of the SEA Games. Abraham will be competing in the forthcoming Commonwealth Games and his ambition is to win Olympic Gold.

As Abraham turns to his academic studies, the Master of Marlborough College Malaysia, Alan Stevens, assured him that he would still be able to hone his marksmanship skills for future competitions, saying, “Abraham’s success is a superb achievement and he has worked extremely hard to gain this accolade. At MCM we recognise the importance of a broad education with character-shaping, enriching experiences and we encourage Abraham to continue to explore his great potential.”
