Image via Wikipedia Many people recognize that building foundation is important after Lee Chong Wei lost to Lin Dan in the Beijing 2008 Olympic Badminton Men's Single Final at 17th Aug 2008. Also check out here.
Watching the whole match through RTM 1 (million thanks to RTM 1 for those who don't subscribe to Astro), I must salute Lin Dan that he is a truly world champion, there is just no doubt about that. His Bruce Lee playing style, his charisma, his physical ability and his passion for excellency.
Like I mentioned early what makes a world champion ? Lin Dan is truly a risk taker.
Congratulation to Choon Wei for putting Malaysia's hope floats at such critical time and for the silver medal.
“Although he (Chong Wei) did not win, I am happy that Chong Wei has made it to such a level. We will try again in London Olympics in four years' time but the important thing is we have to start planning now. We have to bring in our juniors into the national set-up,” Badminton Association of Malaysia president Datuk Mohd Nadzmi Salleh.
