    Taekwando starts 20 Aug

    And George ah, Azizul's opponent in QF is the 2008 gold medalist in Keirin leh.

    Maybe in 2012, Wushu will be become official sport, & we will have representative in golf - the young man, Ben sthing.

    Medal hopes hinge on Elaine, Chew Chan

    MALAYSIA have one silver medal from Lee Chong Wei in the men's singles badminton but whether they can add more medals to their tally will very much depend on taekwondo exponents Elaine Teo and Che Chew Chan.
    Of the five Malaysian athletes yet to see action, only Elaine and Chew Chan have realistic chances of winning medals.
    Fifteen-year-old Pandelela Rinong, the youngest competitor in the women's diving competition, competes in the 10m platform preliminaries tonight. But the Sarawakian cannot expect to get on the podium.
    She can only aim to get into the record books as the first Malaysian diver to make it to the top 18 semi-finals.
    Walker Yuan Yufang, making her third Olympic appearance, will also set out to achieve a top 15 finish for the first time in the women’s 20km race tomorrow.
    World Championships finalist Bryan Nickson is the other Malaysian yet to see action and he will go into competition in the men's 10m platform event on Friday.
    Elaine will compete tomorrow in the women's below 57kg but it is Games debutant Chew Chan who has the better shot at putting on board another medal for Malaysia at the Beijing Science and Technology University Gymnasium on Saturday.
    Chew Chan competes in the above 72kg category and has a more favourable draw than Elaine, who faces the big names from the start.
    Chew Chan opens her campaign against Uzbekistan's Karimova Evegniya while Elaine has to contend with European champion Azize Tanrikulu of Turkey.

    hehe, sori, golf is being considered for 2016 OG, it's one of the sports vying for the 2 spots. Others sports = , baseball, softball, roller sports, squash or karate . for Msia's sake, hopefully either squash or karate makes it.

    By then, Nicol will be 33, haha, hopefully by then she'll have replacement.
    Or Karate, Msia quite strong, 2007 Asia Champ.
