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.”
