In the boys' individual all-round event, Rafi, Shafiqul, Shishir and Sangkheong finished 48th, 52nd, 54th and 55th respectively with 48.600, 44.650, 39.150 and 37.350 points accordingly. Head of delegation and Bangladesh Gymnastic Federation general secretary Ahmedur Rahman Bablu told Dhaka Tribune, "Our gymnasts were almost similar to the others but what they lacked was finishing. Besides, their game temperament is low due to lack of competitions." Bablu added, "It is not possible to perform better without continuous training. Even if we had provided them at least a year's training, their results would have been much better."
