Malaysian rhythmic gymnast Ng Joe Ee erased her earlier disappointment at the 2022 Commonwealth Games after winning a gold medal in the ball event on Saturday.

The 16-year-old scored 29.700 points to finish ahead of Canada's Suzanna Shahbazlan (29.050 points) and Anna Sokolova (28.800 points) of Cyprus, delivering Malaysia's fifth gold medal in Birmingham.

The success couldn't taste any sweeter for Ng after she finished fourth in the team event with Izzah Amzan and Koi Sie Yan, and fifth in the individual all-around final.

In doing so, she helped the Malaysian Gymnastics Federation (MGF) meet its target of winning at least one gold medal in this edition.

Ng also became the third Malaysian rhythmic gymnast to win an individual Commonwealth Games gold medal after Elaine Koon (2010) and Amy Kwan (2018).

Meanwhile, Izzah also got her medal breakthrough as the 21-year-old clinched a bronze medal in the clubs event.
