Our Malaysia Olympic Hero, Dato' Lee Chong Wei

It may be a loss for not winning the Olympics Gold but Lee Chong Wei has gained much more than that... In the eyes of the Malaysians and I am sure in other countries as well, our Dato' Lee Chong Wei is certainly a Winner for he has WON the hearts and respect of many.... Not only that, he has brought Malaysians together, regardless of race and age!

It is indeed touching to know that This One Man can bring unity through Badminton.  When he played, we played along with him... the "oooh-s" and the "ahhhhss".... the "clapping of hands"... the Cheers.... together we supported him morally if not physically...

It is really not easy to reach this stage, an event where he has been training tirelessly to gain a gold for Malaysia.  His efforts and his determination and his cries touched our hearts.....

As the matches were going on last night, I was facebook-ing and my heart was thumping fast too... Sad to know that a man died while watching... the game was too intense... that shows that Lee Chong Wei has really played his very best last night, none can deny that....

Bringing the nation together last night...

By tomorrow he will be back in Malaysia...
A Hero's Welcoming...

  6. So many fans, even Facebook alone...non-stop updates, LCW photos...so many days already still going on. If all turn up at KLIA in huge numbers like the people at Bersih riots, I am sure he will be so touched - did not win, also never mind.
