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.
