    Potential Malaysian players for gold medal in Beijing: Lee, Koo-Tan, Choong-Lee, with Lee having the biggest chance.

    But can he really do it?

    sure. why not? they are good players so if they play well and play hard, there is a chance that they can win.

    It's confusing. Your statement was framed as a question. Your reply, however, suggests you already have a personal opinion on this.

    History tends to repeat itself, and Malaysia has all the history necessary to back up the point that none of its badminton player have what it takes to win an Olympic gold metal. Consider no world champion came from Malaysia since its inception, doesn't that tell you something already?:p

    Hey, bananakid, "IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING !! " and "NEVER SAY NEVER"
    even if they dont win in 2008, maybe in 2012 ? KKK/TBH and LCW are still young...

    Stop posting threads with that weird formatting. It's not funny.

    Agree, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE :)
    Sure, the malaysian CAN win a gold in olimpic, or even TWO.


    CHN might sweep all the 5 medals, or might be only ONE (I cant imagine CHN will get nothing).

    Although 'young', Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong are already a spent force. It'd be quite surprising if they make it even to the semifinals, much less to the winners rostrum at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. :rolleyes:

    In terms of skill, Lee Chong Wei does have what it takes to win a major event. :)
    However, he has (repeatedly) shown that he gets demoralised quite easily. And that isn't going to be an asset when playing against the world's mentally toughest badminton players on their home turf. :(

    Also, the allegation of umpiring bias ahead isn't quite valid.
    Olympic events are overseen by an international panel. :)
    There won't be any 'Chinese' umpiring. :D

    The psychics are all out in force.

    Fortunately they predicted Lin Dan or Taufik Hidayat and Zhang Ning to win the Japan Open.

    So there's every chance for every decent player/team to win.

    That's all. Good night.

    The answer is yes, everybody who are entitled for OG has a chance to win, even the YoYo King hafiz.

    So what is the point of this thread?? To bash or to praise Malaysian players???
