    dont forget Dato. if not, he will get :mad:

    basically, chances are there. is whether push to the limit or not?
    or just proud enough to represent MAS to Olympic.

    national pride or disaster.
    proud to be Malaysian.........;)

    Yup. The Azizul guy beat 2004 gold medalist in June in a tourney. In today's news, Josiah Ng beat 2 OG champs to win the sprints. Of course, title wise, the younger Azizul has won more titles this year then Josiah - 2008 Asia Champ for Keirin & Sprints, hence he'll be the flag bearer. Cycling has a chance on medal, i.e. bronze, in individual event.

    I saw that Asia country only Japan has won medal before in cycling. I didnt count Australia as Asia but Western

    Archery, team event is a maybe only, since they got 2nd in 2008 World Champ. South Korea won it. Their coach is from South Korea, coach said wind conditions in China unpredictable, may affect the archery event since it's outdoors.

    I just hope Josiah will not make the same mistake as in Athens 2004. He could at least have won a bronze medal that time.
    But I don't want to put so much hope on winning golds (maybe a little), just want 2 enjoy all the games..:D:)

    At least now we have more chances in landing more medals than before. And not solely rely on Badminton.
