Lee Chong Wei dreams for more Malaysians to qualify for Paris Olympics
5 days ago
Datuk Lee Chong Wei was Malaysia’s ‘virtual’ chef de mission for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, as he did not travel to Japan for health reasons.
In good health now, the former world No. 1 badminton player remains close to the sporting scene. He even met Malaysia’s newly-minted Youth and Sports Minister, Hannah Yeoh, last month.
“It was good to speak to Hannah. I have high hopes for Malaysian sports, and one of my wishes for the new year is for Malaysian athletes to excel on the world stage and to see a record number qualify for next year’s Paris Olympics,” said Lee, who won silver at the 2008, 2012, and 2016 Olympics.
