Words of a proud malaysian to Datuk Lee Chong Wei

Monday, August 6, 2012

Just finished watching the Olympics badminton match between Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan.

I remembered watching his final Olympics match against Lin Dan 4 years ago and I can say that he had improved leaps and bounds to be able to compete with the world's no.1 badminton player Lin Dan. But......luck wasn't on our side.

Lin Dan won with 21-15, 10-21, 19-21.


Lee Chong Wei was just 2 points away.

All of us malaysians were really disappointed and sad, not because he didn't played well. Not because we couldn't get the promised free Baskin Robbin ice cream.

It was the clear hard work, potential and determination that all of us witnessed. Despite recovering from injuries, he still gave his full effort to fight for a gold medal for his country.

The moment Lin Dan won and ran around the court in celebration, Chong Wei just sat down on the floor, exhausted and clearly disappointed.

It was such a heartbreaking scene for us to watch him so disappointed. I just want to give him a tight hug and tell him: "It's okay! We know you did your best and we are so so so proud of you!!!" I'm sure that was what his coach said to him.

Awww....... ='(

Our Datuk Lee Chong Wei couldn't hold his tears of disappointment.

This is what he tweeted after the match.

No! Don't say sorry to us!! All we want is a smile from you!! We are so proud and happy for you!! In fact, we are the ones who should be thankful. Thank you for that awesome match. It's the best that I've ever seen!

Lin Dan once said: “有一种失利叫美丽,有一种银牌叫金牌。”

Let me translate: There is a kind of failure, called beauty. A silver, called gold.

Of course he is referring to Chong Wei.

Some people call him a failure. Some say he looks like a mouse. We don't care for he has given us something precious called pride.

A true champion doesn't always win. A true champion is always determined and brave enough to stand up after each fall. That's our badminton hero, Datuk Lee Chong Wei!

Fact: Lee Chong Wei gained almost 100k followers in a day(today). Like WOW!! haha~
