Back to the Olympics, the medal contenders for the MS are very much about the same. Favorites being favorites, dark horses remains as dark horses and the rest unmentioned.
The only changes this time around is LCW might not be on the podium.

Gold medal will earn $600K in gold..(related to earlier post)

ANY Malaysian who wins a badminton gold medal at the London Olympics will also receive a gold bar worth more than $600,000.
Andrew Kam, the owner of a gold mine and the Kuala Lumpur Racket Club, has made the offer only to badminton players as he loves the sport.
Malaysia has yet to win a gold medal since it began competing in Olympics in 1956, and its only four medals have all come from badminton: Two silvers and two bronzes.
In challenging Malaysia's six-strong badminton team with the offer of a 12.5 kilogram gold bar worth 2 million ringgit ($613,000), Mr Kam said, "I can produce gold, I believe they too can produce gold."
He said the bar will be shared equally if the badminton players win more than one gold medal.
Malaysia's best prospect, Beijing Games silver medallist Lee Chong Wei, said he's held gold bars in his hand before.
"I hope the second time I hold it, it will be mine," Chong Wei quipped.
Any Malaysian gold medallist in London stands to be well rewarded financially, as the national sports scheme and a furniture company are each offering 1 million ringgit to gold-medal winners.
Olympic Council of Malaysia secretary Sieh Kok Chi didn't believe the private financial incentives added any more pressure on the Malaysian team.
"Most of them are seasoned campaigners," he said. "I believe they will not compete for money but they will do it for the pride of the country. Money is not everything."

don't worry, LCW supporters, just in case LCW fails again & wins the Silver medal, it will be about the same as winning the Gold medal..

Thanks to Pakito for the photos; But found no Badminton courts ???
Looking at the photos, we should expect some Table-Tennis champions coming from SJKC Berapit.

LCW said he used to play basketball before switching to badminton. See the basketball court?

Come Monday, you should be able to place your bets as the official draw would be out. I suggest look to OTB instead of BET365 as he offer better odds (you can choose 2 players instead of 1 as per bet)!! Pay out is not guaranteed though.
The last picture is actually the entrance to the badminton courts according to the signage. It might be closed at that point of time.
