Chong Wei is one of the all-time outstanding badminton talents.
His heroics at the top of the game for many years have earned him the title Datuk and had the Malaysian Prime Minister describe him as a national hero.
A World number one, Chong Wei has a number of gold medals to his name after victory at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne and the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
He won back-to-back Yonex All England Open titles in 2010 and 2011 while 2014 saw him secure his tenth Malaysia Open title.
He has received many awards throughout his illustrious career and his autobiography - 'Dare to be a Champion' - is a bestseller in his home country.Lee Chong Wei Links Lee Chong Wei On Twitter
Datuk Lee Chong Wei gagal meneruskan sentuhan juaranya apabila tewas mudah di tangan pemain Indonesia, Simon Santoso 15-21, 10-21 dalam masa 47 minit di Stadium Tertutup Singapura pada Kejohanan Siri Super Terbuka Singapura, semalam.
Jaguh perseorangan negara itu yang sebelum ini gah menjuarai Siri Super Premier Terbuka Malaysia (Januari), Seluruh England (Mac) dan Siri Super Terbuka India minggu lalu, terpaksa akur dengan permainan pantas Simon bagi memusnahkan hasrat Chong Wei untuk meraih kejuaraan keempat musim ini.
“Sudah lama saya tidak dapat menundukkan Chong Wei dan ini saat yang amat menggembirakan.
“Terima kasih kepada penyokong yang tidak henti-henti menyokong saya sepanjang kejohanan ini berlangsung.
Ia memberi kekuatan dan lebih motivasi kepada saya bagi menghadapi perlawanan hingga berjaya menang,” kata Simon selepas berakhir aksi final.
Selaku juara, Simon membawa pulang wang tunai ASS$22,500 (RM72,832) manakala Chong Wei berpuas hati dengan AS$11,600 (RM37,549).
Kemenangan itu yang kedua dimenangi Simon ke atas Chong Wei dalam 11 perlawanan selepas kali terakhir menewaskannya pada Super Siri Terbuka Jepun 2009. – Harian MetroShare this:
In view of our badminton star’s Silver medal achievement in the recent Olympic games in London, several brands have stepped up and offered goodies to congratulate Datuk Lee Chong Wei for his amazing feat.
However, the goodies ain’t for him. It’s for the people who have no direct contribution to his success – but to just support Chong Wei.
Nevertheless, it was a proud moment for Malaysia.
The nation stood by Chong Wei and congratulated him for his amazing effort throughout the final match against China’s Lin Dan. He did his best – we salute him for that.
Unfortunately (yes, really unfortunately), brands like Baskin Robbins and Kayu SS2 took this opportunity to boost their presence by giving out goodies.
Kayu SS2 pledged to give out free Nasi Kandar to celebrate Chong Wei’s achievement. And…
Wah, look at the swarm of people! Sibeh long queue at Kayu SS2, and it was for a plate of Nasi Kandar – I can’t believe my eyes! o.O
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Baskin Robbins pledged to give a free scoop of ice-cream to every Malaysian – also to celebrate Chong Wei’s achievement. And…
Wah, another sibeh long queue weh! It’s JUST a damn scoop of ice-cream, and not surprisingly, Malaysians don’t mind waiting! o.O
Truth to be told, we Malaysians love free stuff – if it’s free, why not?
But I personally think that it’s quite sad to be queueing up like that for food that costs only about RM20 both. It’s not like we can’t afford, right?
Actually, these brands shouldn’t have done such a marketing scheme. Why reward the people when all you gotta do is to reward the man who brought glory to our nation?
In fact, Baskin Robbins should have just given Chong Wei a life-time supply of ice-cream. So does Kayu SS2. It should be as simple as that.
And not long after, Johnnie Walker hopped onto the bandwagon. They requested for their Facebook post to be shared 1000 times in return of offering Chong Wei a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
What the hell? If it’s a genuine intention, just walk (no pun intended) the talk – sharing is not needed at all.
But as of now, the share count is only at 236. Does that mean Johnnie Walker won’t offer Chong Wei the bottle? It will be an epic fail.
You know what, if I’m damn rich and kenwooi.com is a massive brand, I’ll be giving him a life-time supply of… oranges!
Coz it will give him all the Vitamin Cs that he needs – proudly sponsored by Ken Man. kenwooi.com’s mascot. Heh. ;)
Anyway, Chong Wei cried during the award ceremony. We all know that he said sorry for not winning gold for the country. But I think he was shedding tears for another reason…
Honestly, I don’t think these free food is even part of his daily diet. Such act has no relevance with Chong Wei’s achievement at all.
By the way, now that Pendelela Rinong has also won an Olympics medal, a bronze to be exact, perhaps some brands ought to do something about it?
How about sponsoring her with a life-time of swimming gears? Speedo, are you up for it?
Oh yeah, and in the bright future, if national bowler, Noor Afizal Azizan, a potential sportsman for Malaysia, wins a medal…
He should be awarded a bigger ball to do the time for “forcefully bowling his pin into a girl’s goal” crime.
Final Showdown. Chong Wei VS Pandelela VS Afizal
Chong Wei’s favourite phrase – CHIONG WEH! It means “GO FOR IT!” in English.
Pandelela’s favourite phrase – RENANG! Her success in swimming is clearly spelt on her name in Malay – Rinong.
Afizal’s favourite phrase – NOOR! Obviously, he said “No” to the punishment.
Malaysian pride and joy, Datuk Lee Chong Wei, one of the best badminton players in the world has been implicated as one of the top athletes who failed a recent drug test, The Star Online reported.
The test happened at August’s World Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark when Lee was randomly called out to do the test in which he was surprised by the result.
He then requested for a second test to be carried out for the ‘B’ sample sixteen days later, but the result of the test was not yet known.
According to Berita Harian, Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS), Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar said, “A statement regarding this matter has already been issued, for now, we are still waiting for the test result of ‘B’ sample.”
The Youth and Sports Minister also said that he would not tolerate athletes who tested positive for drugs, he said that the athletes should make sure that the food, supplementary, or medication are free of banned substance.
However, former Malaysian badminton player and Lee’s acquaintance, Muhd Hafiz Hashim believes that it was a misunderstanding, he believes that Lee would not have taken or eaten any banned substance.
“I cannot believe this, but if there is someone who wanted to bring him (Lee) down, he better properly explains this,” said Hafiz Hashim.
He also further added, “Maybe he did not realise when he took supplementary, he might have accidently taken it. But no matter what, taking drugs is inappropriate.”

Anything is possible when you have the will. ) I would like to hereby thank ChongWei for his time and hope he does really well in the coming Olympics game in Beijing. All the best! 1. What age did you start playing? I started playing badminton from the age of 11 years old. 2. Was it your intention to be a professional player from the start? Actually that was not my intention at the start, it happens naturally as my father trained and encouraged me to play badminton when I am young. 3. When did you realize you were good enough to be a world beater? I think it was when I am 17. That was the year when I won a lot of local tournaments and felt that I stood a chance to enter the national team. And yes my dreams turn reality that year as I was drafted to the national team set up that year. 4. How were you noticed at the national level? I was noticed at the national level and drafted.

Ring…” the shrill ringing of the school bell pierced the air, bringing to an end the silence that reined the class for past forty minutes. As the mathematics teacher stepped out of the class, there was a sense of relief as Mr. Siva was a strict disciplinarian who would not tolerate any of our pranks. The other students started their conversation. Today Zahirah who sit beside me was absent. She got a fever. Then, I saw Seng Hye bustled to the front of the class. The most detestable boy in the class, he was the prankster whose his behavior was a source of irritation and annoyance to most of us especially among the girls. He approached me with his familiar mischievous grin from ear to ear. Then, in a twinkling of an eye, he put something on my desk. As he ran out of the classroom, I could hear his hysterical screams. I knew he was up to mischief again. It was then I saw he slimy, creepy creature staring at me with it moist eyes. All of a sudden, with a croak and a single giant leap, the four-legged creature landed on my lap. I was frozen with fear. Then, I let out a few screams that echoed the class. This joke was at my expense. Calling his name at the top of my voice, he cowered in silence. The hilarious laughter I heard before from my other classmates stopped. Seng Hye had guilt written all over his face. We were both summoned to Mr. Siva’s room. He asked for apologize and was let off with a stern warning. As I stepped out of the room.

Datuk LeeChongWei (born 21 October 1982 in Bagan Serai, Perak) is a professional badminton player from Malaysia who resides in Bukit Mertajam. As a singles player, Lee was ranked first worldwide for 199 consecutive weeks from 21 August 2008 to 14 June 2012. He is the third Malaysian men's singles shuttler after Rashid Sidek and Roslin Hashim to achieve such a ranking (since official rankings were first kept in the 1980s), and is the only Malaysian shuttler to hold the ranking for more than two weeks.

LeeChongWei is one of the 'Malaysian Hero' who gained recognition from everyone around the world in the international badminton world stage. In his early years, Lee favoured basketball, however his mother soon forbade him from the game due to the searing heat of the outdoor basketball court. Lee began to learn badminton at the age of 11, when his father, who liked to play the game, brought him to the badminton hall.

Discovered by Misbun Sidek, he was drafted into the national squad when he was seventeen years old. On 3 November 2006, Lee was involved in a car accident. On his way to Bukit Jalil after dinner, he was hit from behind by a vehicle which had lost control after a tire blow out. He was then sent to the Sunway Medical Centre and treated with six stitches for his head injury.

LeeChongWei is no common athlete. National hero in his home land of Malaysia, the hard-working and talented ChongWei has won everything but two major titles – World Championships and Olympic Games – he was just one point short of bagging Malaysia’s first ever world crown, in the men’s singles this summer in London. In a biography published this Wednesday, January 18th, he explains how that happened, and how he felt at that precise point. Dare to be a Champion is the title of the book – one of the few badminton biographies and the only one about a shuttler still in the circuit ( Peter Gade will shortly be publishing his own biography) and gives an overview of Chong Wei’s career, with its ups and down, amongst which this moment where he was so close to the Grail in London, in the summer of 2012. Here is an excerpt from the book (thanks to Malaysia’s Star): ON Aug 14, 2011, the BWF World Championship, the most prestigious tournament in badminton was held at London’s Wembley Arena Indoor Stadium. I had never made it to the final in this competition, winning only a bronze medal in 2005. This has always been the biggest title that I wanted to win. Wembley Arena is going to be the venue for badminton in the 2012 London Olympics. Competitors from all around the world saw the world championship as a great opportunity to warm up for the Olympic Games. I spent a lot of time and.
