The best person will win the game

Opponents always meet on the field. Chinese badminton player Lin Dan will meet his old opponent Lee Chongwei from Malaysia at 2012 London Olympic Games.
Lee Chong Wei V.S Lin Dan
In terms of ability, both have been being the champions of men's badminton singles for many years and both are frequent competitors of the badminton finals. No other badminton players can catch up with them so far.

As for fame, Lin is the only Chinese among the 11 Olympic stars recommended by the U.S. Associated Press while Lee is awarded the title of "honorary major" and is the hope of Malaysia.

SOLE TARGET: Chong Wei out to mangle China stranglehold and win an Olympic bonanza in London

NO matter what condition he is in,Lee Chong Wei is Malaysia’s best bet for a medal in the London Olympics beginning tomorrow.

The silver medal will surely be his had Chong Wei not suffered an ankle injury during the Thomas Cup Finals in Wuhan in May and he would have a fair shot at gold.Lee Chong Wei

However, the injury had taken about six weeks to heal and with just four weeks of training before the Olympics, it would be a difficult task to take on his nemesis, Lin Dan of China in a much anticipated final at Wembley Arena on Aug 5.

Lin Dan is probably in the form of his life and is more experienced and confident than he was in the Beijing Olympics four years ago.

OLYMPIC GLORY: The world has not seen the best of Malaysian athletes... yet

 

LONDON: THERE are two potential scenarios for Malaysia in London 2012 --  bettering the high of Atlanta '96 or faring as badly as the contingent that went to Athens '04, which led to former NST sports editor Lazarus Rokk calling it the nation's own Greek tragedy.

Athens '04 led to a massive overhaul how athletes were prepared for major meets and the results were seen in Beijing four years later, which resulted in a 12-year-wait for a medal ending with Lee Chong Wei winning silver.Malaysian athletes have genuine reasons to be optimistic that medals will be won by them in London.

While that was to be Malaysia's biggest achievement in the 2008 Games, there were some other notable results achieved in archery, cycling and diving and four years later, athletes from these sports are all in the running for medals in London.

Malaysians are a pessimistic bunch when it comes to sport and they have every right to be but we must, as the curtains go up on London 2012, be proud that progress has been made and we have genuine reasons to be optimistic that medals will be won.

MALAYSIA’S Lee Chong Wei, one of the few genuine threats to China’s ambitions in the men’s badminton, is still scrambling to be fit for his first-round match at the London Games after suffering a serious ankle injury.

“I’m not 100% recovered. I feel I’m training better and now about 90% recovered,” the former world No. 1 said at the Wembley Arena. “I know there is a lot of pressure but now I feel less pressure because of my injury.

“But this is my third Olympics and my final Olympics so gold is very important to me and my career.”

KUALA LUMPUR, July 24 -- Malaysian shuttlers competing in the London Olympics are expected to face contrasting fortunes in the men's singles, men's doubles and mixed doubles competition.

National singles ace Datuk Lee Chong Wei was drawn against less formidable opponents while the men's doubles pair Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong will have a daunting task against South Korea's leading pair.

Chong Wei, the world number is expected to go through an easy passage to the semi-final after being drawn against world number 45, Ville Lang from Finland in Group A.

Barring any upsets, Chong Wei is expected to meet China's rising star Chen Long in the semis and probably meet defending champion Lin Dan of China in the final.
