Yesterday when Dato' was having his match against PG, i was giving a badminton lesson with my student and it was not a meeting that interest me the most since on current performance and past history of meeting between them, obviously Dato' will win ( sorry PG fans ....however, PG is still one of my favorite player). Its between Darren and Jogersen that i was looking forward to see.
Suddenly i received many miss call from my colleagues in MSN and they told me Dato' suffered a bad ankle injury and that was enough to stop me from continuing my badminton lesson immediately (sorry my student....today i will replace yesterday session). I was concern the nature of his injury and luckily i recorded the match with my Astro Max and played repeatedly the scene how he injured his right ankle by landing awkwardly uncountable times and observed closely the nature of his swelling right ankle after the fall.
After looking into it and i sat down on my couch and i remembered that 2 years ago, one of my talented student suffered the same exact injury while participating in a state level tournament......and also the same exact injury that i suffered twice ~ 9 and ~ 5 years ago. I'm not against any fact published here in the local newspaper:
...however IMHO, until a second scan comes for another concrete diagnosis, as far as from looking into it uncountable times and from my experience, Dato' has likely has tear his right ankle Talofibular ligament and Calcaneofibular ligament.....and its likely to be a grade 2 inversion lateral right ankle sprain.
My pray for speedy recovery is all for him and despite what mention in the news that he will be out for 3 - 4 weeks, i can tell you that if it is as what i think then, when you have a grade 2 or grade 3 (hopefully not) ankle sprain, healing the injured ligaments is one issue while making the ankle functionally fit and stable is another issue. From my experienced of a grade 2 ankle sprain, while under MSN guidance with the help of their medical and physiotherapist, healing it self will take roughly anywhere from 4 - 6 weeks and to restore ankle stability and proprioception again will take anywhere from 4 - 6 weeks.
Since the Olympics will start end of this July which the MS will sart kicking on the 28th if i'm not mistaken, therefore he has roughly around 65 days before the big event starts. If he's out for 3 -4 weeks as what the news said, therefore he will be on treatment to heal his injury for 30 days leaving another 35 days to be fully fit. It's going to be a very close window period for our Dato' and he needs all the Malaysian pray to support for his quick recovery.
I PRAY THAT DATO' WILL RECOVER QUICKLY AND FIT TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS YEAR OLYMPIC AND WIN A GOLD MEDAL FOR MALAYSIA.

Lee's Olympic gold dream in a twist
by Philip Goh
04:46 AM May 23, 2012
SINGAPORE - Malaysia's hopes of winning their first Olympic gold medal took a big hit yesterday when badminton world No 1 Lee Chong Wei limped out of his match against Denmark's Peter Hoeg Gade at the ongoing Thomas Cup finals in Wuhan.
The 29-year-old left the court in tears after landing awkwardly only five minutes into his Group match with Gade. Malaysia's national news agency Bernama reported that Lee twisted his ankle and was taken away in a wheelchair for treatment, accompanied by coach Teh Seu Bock.
Speaking to Today from Wuhan, Kenny Goh, general manager of the Badminton Association of Malaysia, said: "Chong Wei's ankle is swollen and we're sending him back to Kuala Lumpur on the first available flight."
Lee came second to arch-rival Lin Dan in the men's singles final at the Beijing Games in 2008 and has long been regarded as Malaysia's best bet to break their Olympic gold medal duck.
But his lead-up to the London Games has been plagued with injury and uncertain form. In the All-England final in March, Lee withdrew with a shoulder strain while trailing Lin 1-0 in the final. Last month, he lost the Indian Open final to unseeded South Korean Shon Wan Ho.
Lee has already stated that he will retire following the London Games that starts on July 27.
Malaysia's national singles head coach, Rashid Sidek, confirmed Lee will take no more part in the Thomas Cup.
"His ankle is so swollen. He needs further checks to see the depth of the injury," Rashid told reporters in Wuhan.
"He was crying and was so emotional. He must have been thinking about the Olympic Games too. For now, all he needs is some rest and time to regain his confidence."
"We want him to have enough rest before the Olympic Games in London." PHILIP GOH

What a bad day for our olympic dreams. What I had feared has come to pass. LCW has been shouldering all the hopes of the nation on his tiny frame for a good half a decade. Tournament after tournament he had given his best 100% sometimes even 110%. Being No.1 for almost one whole Olympiad.
Something got to give and as he grows older, the body reacts to the punishment he has put himself through season after season, tournament after tournament.
Forget about the Olympics. This kind of injury is a career destroying one. Even if he heals in time, his movement henceforth would be affected. He would have to change his game to cater for the injury and it would take about a year or so for someone at that age to reach at least 90% of what he once was and he wouldnt be able to give us the 100% in every tournament.
From henceforth there would be tournaments he could win, but be prepared he could lose even in the opening rounds.
I am so sad the LCW's era has come to an end before even he could get a last shot at glory.
The silver lining is that BAM would have to look at the back up and develop them.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES LCW FOR GIVING US SUCH FANTASTIC BADMINTON OVER THE YEARS.
LD may make us open our mouths in awe of his power, But LCW gave us many Da vinci and Michaelangelo moments in Badminton.

Saw the video ...ouch...looks like his ankle was badly twisted. Feel sorry for him. Poor guy he had to put his shoe back on and walked to Peter Gade! How come no paramedic to assist him?
Hope he recovers just in time for OG12.

LCW is the most tragic story in badminton in our generation. Years of rivalry with LD and it comes down to this in the eve of Olympics.
