Lee Chong Wei Eyes A GOLD for Malaysia
Luckily I managed to witnessed a great victory by Lee Chong Wei againts stubborn South Korean single, Lee Hyun-il 21-18, 13-21, 21-13 in the semi-finals Friday at the Beijing University of Technology Gymnasium. It was such an amazing match with both players displaying brilliant skills.
By booking his place in the final, which will be played this Sunday, Chong Wei has pocketed RM300,000 as an incentive from the Malaysian govvernment. If he manages to win Malaysia’s first ever Olympic gold, Chong Wei will received a cool RM1mil.
Before the last four clash here, the record between Chong Wei and Lee was even for this year. Chong Wei beat Lee in the Malaysian Open final in three games.
When they next clashed in the Korean Open, Lee whipped Chong Wei in the second round and went on to beat world number one Lin Dan in a three-game thriller for the title.
Chong Wei is the only Malaysian shuttler still in the fray in Bejing. The other Malaysians all failed to shine.
