First Gold is getting close

The entire nation watched with bated breath yesterday as shuttler Lee Chong Wei rose above intense pressure to book himself into the men's singles final with a 21-18, 13-21, 21-13 victory over South Korea's Lee Hyun Il. The victory have guaranteed Malaysia's first medal in this 29th Beijing Olympic and the fourth Olympics medal throughout Malaysia participation. Silver is definite. Go for the Gold!!!

This is what Chong Wei said “Let them do what they want to do because I am in the final and I will fight. The gold medal means my life and I won’t chicken out. Malaysia can be assured of that.”

In the past, badminton has delivered one bronze and silver through Rashid Sidek and Cheah Soon Kit-Yap Kim Hock.

Chong Wei, makes us proud and have fun!!! All the best.
