more datuk handouts
MISBUN SIDEK MADE DATUK BY MELAKA
Bernama - Monday, August 25BUKIT MERTAJAM, Aug 24 (Bernama) -- National badminton coach, Misbun Sidek, was today awarded the Darjah Mulia Seri Melaka (DMSM) that carries the title of 'Datuk' in recognition of his services to make the country renowned for the sport.
Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam announced that the award would be bestowed on Misbun this Thursday by Melaka Yang Dipertua Negeri, Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob, at Istana Melaka.
Speaking to reporters after visiting the Barisan Nasional (BN) operations centre at Mengkuang Titi here, Mohd Ali said Misbun's contributions to the country were great as he not only successfully trained Lee Chong Wei to win a silver medal at the Beijing Olympics but had himself tasted victory as a national badminton player.
"We waited many years to get this medal and after discussing with the Yang Dipertua Negeri he agreed to the award," he said.
Mohd Ali said among championships that Misbun won were the German Open, the Sweden Open, the Canada Open, the Malaysia Open, the Taiwan Open and the Singapore Open.
He said Misbun was also national champion seven times and was picked as the best coach
although i agreed with this award but i view it as an after thought.
Misbun should have been awarded at the same time as lcw, not after complaints from his wife

Shuttler's focus on Japan Open
KUALA LUMPUR: Fresh from his Olympic outing, Lee Chong Wei who won a silver medal in the badminton singles, wants to put behind the episode of "being used" as a political pawn and concentrate on training to prepare for the Japan Open which begins on Sept 13.
Speaking to reporters after meeting DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng at the sidelines of the party national congress here, Chong Wei said he was surprised over the attention he received since returning home early this week.
"Even my coach has commented that I am attending too many functions. I am also worried that after all the attention, I would be criticised if I do not perform at the Japan Open. I just want to focus on my badminton training," he said.
Chong Wei met the Penang chief minister yesterday to thank him for the datukship award proposed by the state government after his triumph at the Beijing Olympic Games.
He said he did not want to be involved in political activities, but the events arranged were beyond his control.
"I am just a sportsman. I hope the people understand this. Although the datukship is an added pressure on me, I would certainly use it to work harder, knowing that there is a lot of expectation of me."
He added that he had proposed to the Penang government to build a world-class badminton venue to further develop the sport in the state.
Chong Wei said he decided to meet the Penang chief minister on the sidelines of the DAP congress because the earlier meeting scheduled for last Monday was cancelled. -- Bernama

too much matters to consider if LCW involve in politics..maybe affect his performance..
08-25-2008, 05:42 AM #141
I dont agree if LCW be a politician, its not him at all. He is a great athlete so please dont be a politician, because it will annoying his appereance in tournament..
08-25-2008, 09:37 AM #142
So now Misbun also got his Datukship......

Many polictians in MAS doesnt want the athletes to be excel. They never learn from past mistakes. Look at how Koo/Tan perfomance currently. After they both being "used" for the by-election in Machap.
I strongly believe LCW will get the same fate as Koo/Tan. Wouldnt be any different
08-25-2008, 11:01 AM #144
Plus, Misbun as the coach gets 20% of what LCW got = RM60,000.
haha, after what happened to KKK/TBH, LCW knows how to answer, by saying his coach doesnt like it & he'll be critised if he doesnt do well in Japan Open. The politicians should do well to remember how angry Rexy was at ABC 2007

Why no Datuk-ship for Yap Kim Hock and Cheah Soon Kit? They won that silver medal also.
And for all the TC1992 PLAYERS ALSO.???
As an athlete, silver medal means that you are still not the best of the best. Maybe for malaysians, 2nd place is good enough - rather than gets nothing.
Datuk-ship will lost its value if things like this continue and become meaningless.
Athlete get silver medal crowned Datuk-ship, ''ASTRANAUTS'' get Datuk-ship etc....
Maybe KWUN also entitle for the Datuk-ship for his contribution of creating and platform badminton fanz to share our point and view, if he is malaysian.

He totally deserves the title ok? If you want to complain so much, why don't YOU yourself try playing against the world no.1, lin dan of china. It's not easy getting this kind of title. I mean like, seriously. What's wrong with getting that title when he definitely deserves it.
You mean you didn't feel any anxiety while watching the match? Or you didn't support Lee Chong Wei during the Gold Medal Match? If you chose to deny it, I still wouldn't believe that you didn't even have an inch of that gan cheong feeling when he was about to play or when he was playing.
Tell me, why doesn't he deserve the datukship? You mean, you're worthier than him?
Or you think people like Michelle Yeoh deserves this title more than Lee Chong Wei? I do think she deserves the title. But what I don't understand is all this negative talk about Lee Chong Wei and his datukship. Michelle Yeoh is a fantastic and marvelous actress. However, I honestly think acting is much much (I repeat) MUCH easier than playing badminton. When you act, you can afford to make mistakes because after making one, all you have to do is retake that specific scene. But for playing a sport like badminton, you can't afford to make any mistakes as it will jeopardize a player's entire score.
If you can give me a better reason besides 'Yap Kim Hock and Cheah Soon Kit didn't get the datuk title although they managed to get a silver medal' I'd definitely listen to your opinions. (Please defend yourself by trying to use better english. I know my english isn't that good, but I know that I can spell 'fans' as F A N S and not F A N Z!)
I find it unfair (i'm not biased ok?) they didn't get a datuk title but you should bring a few matters into consideration.
Like for instance, if Siti Nurhaliza started her whole music career in a group of five, you don't expect the goverment to give EVERY SINGLE member of the group a datuk title right? The same thing goes for Yap Kim Hock and Cheah Soon Kit. Takan both players get a Datukship titile right? It wouldn't feel that right.
I know you're wondering, Lee Chong Wei AND Misbun Sidek got that title. But think about it, Misbun Sidek contributed SO MUCH into making Lee Chong Wei World No. 2.
And if they were to give the title to Yap Kim Hock and Cheah Soon Kit, then they'd have to give the exact same title to their coach (whoever it may be). Then title will then be less meaningful because it's divided into three!
Another thing is that Olympics now and Olympics back then is very different. Now it is much more competitive compared to back then. And also, it's good to celebrate by giving him a datukship because we haven't gotten a medal in the Olympics in 12 years!
Your sibling got a medal when he/she was four. Many many many years have passed, and that sibling of yours failed to get a medal, there's still a little bit of hope that he/she will come back from a competition, smiling as he/she recieved a medal. And when he/she turns sixteen, he/she comes back with a silver medal!!! Tell me you won't celebrate, and I will start quoting Bible verses at you about lying being a sin.
This datukship is a way to thank him for working so hard for his country. Judging by the way you (the people who claims DATUK Lee Chong Wei doesn't deserve the title) speak, please step forward and make your country proud!
and the rest of you who don't support DATUK Lee Chong Wei and his title,
please contact me through my profile on this forum and you can sabo and insult me like a mad bull when you come back with a datukship. and this time, it won't be a title because you got a silver medal. and it also won't be because you won a GOLD medal. but you'd get the datuk title because you got 9 gold medals in the London Olympics 2012! Wohoooo!!

Yap Kim Hock/Cheah Soon Kit, someone already give his/her opinion, hilarious too. you also didnt read the other pages.

Well, I only joined this forum because i wanted to download videos of Lee Chong Wei during the Olympics. And I just came across this thread. Since I'm a Lee Chong Wei fan, I guess I got pretty angry about what other people said.
But the next time I probably visit this website again would probably be like...when Lee Chong Wei competes during the next Olympics?? I don't know...I just don't like reading comments which don't make sense and have lots of grammatical errors like 'walau weiiiiiii lidat also can ah? datuk ship when he oni got silver medal?? lolxxxxxx hahazzzzz~~~~~~~~!!!!! did u c how he kena owned by lin danzzz wahahaha so farnyyyyyyyyyy'
Goodness I can't stand those kind of useless comments. That's why I never read the previous thread pages which is why I haven't a clue about what went on before this. I guess it's partialy my fault that I got so boiled up about this topic. =/

I want to ask you if you are really LCW's fan. Give me your opinion on the defeat tamely to Lin Dan in the final game at Beijing.
LCW is a good player, i never doubt of abt it. But the mentality is weak. U might said he is under pressure, 26 million ppl of malaysia put their hope on him. But think of LD. How much ppl behind LD? And why LD can perform extremely well in that game?
