Going by the article on Forbes, Dato’ Lee Chong Wei might be the most talked about man in cyberworld immediately after his long stroke shuttle hit outside the the back boundary line and missed the much awaited Gold Medal at London2012.
Gist of the report:
- 16,847 tweets per minute mentioning about the outcome of the Sunday match
- mentions of Lee Chong Wei himself have spiked to over 9,200 tweets per minutes!
- Lee Chong Wei garnered nearly 500,000 mentions on Sunday. (Lin Dan only 238,000 mentions)
- added close to 50,000 new followers on Twitter in 24 hours after his match.
- #ThankYouLeeChongWei reached No. 3 in the Twitter’s Worldwide Trends list after the match ended
So our Olympians fail to bring back the much awaited Gold from London 2012. Our hopes were on the shoulder of Dato’ Lee Chong Wei but he was beaten by his archival, Lin Dan in a rubber set. He won the first game but lost both the second and third.
After his defeat in a well fought match, there are still dim hopes from our cyclist, Azizul Hasni Awang but according to Cycling Manager, Dato’ Naim, Azizul was not prepared for London 2012 but Rio2016. So, his participation in London on merit is just to set a benchmark to prepare him for Rio2016. However we still hope some upsets. If not our tigers come back with only one Silver from Dato’ Lee.
For the first time nobody was upset with Dato’ Lee’s defeat as being shown from Facebook posting and comments and also on twitter. Except for one politician who made a mockery of the defeat and he think to play in the finals of the Olympic with a world class player is like playing in his own backyard court.
Dato’ Lee has nothing to apologize to the sports fans because his supporters had watched it live how he fought to the end with just three points away to the gold. Everybody who was glued to the television screen or watch it on other gadgets how Dato’ Lee went all out to create history for himself and for Malaysia. However “rezeki” is not there yet.

Dato’ Lee Chong Wei lost to his arch rival Lin Dan from China at Wembly Arena in London in a hard fought match. He wins the first game 21-15 but went down in the second game 10-21 and finally in the rubber 19-21. He gave out all his best to fulfill the hopes of 28 million Malaysians.
There are also comments that he depended on painkillers to play the finals which led to National Sports Institute has to come out with this statement;
Then post on Facebook was this uncalled for comments from a Malaysian who tries to make a mockery of the outcome on his tweeter that angered sports fan. He should not have made the comments in the first place at the time when all Malaysians feels sad with the lost. Every Malaysian was looking forward for Dato’ Lee Chong Wei to bring back our first Olympic Gold. he did his best but lost to a better player. That is sports and a sportsman accept defeat with decorum and not send out sarcastic messages to the players.
