Our first gold medal beckons

Shuttler, Lee Chong Wei did us proud by beating his South Korean opponent in the singles quarterfinals match this evening. My family and I were glued to the TV screen watching the match.

In so doing, Chong Wei guarantees that we have, at the very least, a silver medal to bring home.

If his winning streak continues right into the finals match, then it's a gold in the bag for Malaysia. Our first ever.

But to do that he would have to go against the Great Wall of China - in the form of world number 1, Lin Dan.

Go ahead Chong Wei. Show 'em what you've got. We've got nothing to lose. All Malaysians will be rooting for you.

GREAT. I like specially the moment he spontaneously jumped across the barrier and hugged Misbun with legs rapped around the coach's body. Thai is TRULY Malaysian which cancelled any feeling for racial identity. I do hope the picture will be played back or advertise as often as possible. Let's get glued to the TV again and wish all the best for him and Malaysia.

Your wish were granted. That picture was splashed all over the newspapers the next day. Really noce. Alas, the gold did not materialize. Never mind, there's always the next Olympic to look forward to...
