2012 All England Open Badminton Championship has just ended. It was about 1.20am in the morning at Malaysian time.
hmmm.. sad ending isn't it?
Datuk Lee Chong Wei (LCW) conceded a walkover to Lin Dan in the Men’s Single due to shoulder injury. The score was 19-21, 2-6.
However, LCW he gave his best. It's a wise move to do that, if not the Olympic dream might be shattered. Lin Dan said the injury won’t affect LCW too much because they will meet again in Olympic games this year.
It’s a warm scene that both athletes exchanged jersey. I feel Lin Dan wasn’t being arrogant tonight. The supporters especially Malaysians were so hyped up and supportive.
No one expected this ending. But sometimes things are out of our control. Things don’t go the way we wanted it to be. The saddest person in the world today is none other than the world number 1 badminton player, LCW.
So no condemnation pls. at least he played as a Malaysian, representing Malaysia. He showed great sportsmanship n fighting spirit.
What moved me is LCW brought all of us together through sports. We were watching not a Chinese, Indian or Malay in that match, but a Malaysian who’s fighting for a championship for us. Tonight, the nation is united again.
