Lee Chong Wei wins Silver Medal for Malaysia at 2012 London Olympics
by Din Merican
It was an exciting finals, which saw the Malaysian leading in the first set. The final set was a cliff hanger; it could have gone either way. In my view, it was Lin Dan’s destiny to win. Lin Dan reaffirmed his position as the greatest badminton champion of his generation.
With the victory, Lin Dan became the first man to defend an Olympic badminton singles title. China remains the dominant badminton nation.
