According to media reports, Farah has decided to retire after she was dropped from the final list of the women’s artistic gymnastics squad in the upcoming Southeast Asian (SEA) Games

Malaysia Gymnastics Federation (MGF) secretary-general Afrita Ariany Nasril, Farah was dropped out from the final list after she failed to clear the air revolving around her future with the national squad.

” Farah Ann had voiced her intention to retire in 2019 so from that moment we have already prepared two plans for the SEA Games, which is Plan A with Farah Ann and Plan B without her and now we opted to use Plan B in Hanoi,” Bernama quoted Afrita Ariany as saying.
