Wei almost wins
Oh what a difference a day makes!
Friday night saw workers at Cape Rachado (Tanjung Tuan) Lighthouse jumping for joy, above, when Lee Chong Wei won his semi-final against his Chinese nemesis Lin Dan to make his third Olympic singles final. The men who appear indifferent in the photograph are Indonesian migrant workers!
Then on Saturday evening, Malaysian's flocked to sports complexes like this one above in Seremban, and cafes all over the country to watch Lee Chong Wei miss out on a gold medal for the third time Heads hung low for a while as China's Chen won in straight sets but were raised soon after upon realising the effort Chong Wei has made over the past 12 years to try and become Malaysia's first Gold medalist at the Olympics.
Well done Chong Wei, all of Malaysia salutes you.
