    Based on LCW's recent performances, i really hope he will bring Msia's FIRST olympic medal in Beijing..! ^^
    i think he has become more mature.

    yalo... he's dam good against peter gade yesterday.. if he can maintain the form till the OG, he sure can win gold.

    Just 1 thing can he maintain his form? or will he crumble under pressure or Lin Dan goes to an even higher level of play(hope not:D) let's see

    World Ranking doesnt guarantee a GOLD medal, but only good seedings to avoid the top guns. LCW is not too concerned whether he is No.1 or No2, as long as he avoid LinDan prior to the final. That's the bottom line.

    Federer still No.1 but Nadal has been winning lately ;)

    Let not get overly excited ... please

    Yes, LCW won the SO yesterday.

    Yes, he thrashed his opponent in the final yesterday.

    Yes, LCW have been showing good form of late.

    ... BUT shall we hold the Malaysia Boleh champagne until we get our hands on that gold in Beijing??

    Though I am happy to see LCW taking the SO, I must say with the big guns missing, LCW ought win the SO as the world #2, which he did.

    We need to be clear here that winning the SO with a relatively easy field and taking that MS gold in Beijing are absolutely two different matter. In Beijing, the big guns will be there. So, lets chill that Boleh champagne, hold back that Malaysia Boleh marching band at least until the Olympics.

    Lets aim for the big titles.

    Offer if MAS win the gold???

    Hmmm ... let me approach it this way; I think it will be a curse to Msian badminton if we win a gold in Beijing. Why??? Because I think the celebrations, the politicians, the rewards, and all other things bout Malaysia Boleh may set Msian badminton back another 15 years.

    What comes to mind will be another repeat of our TC win in 92. What happened to our shuttlers and badminton after that win??? Our badminton fortunes went downhill and our shuttlers (some) went bankrupt.

    So, I dont know. Winning that first gold for the country is good on one hand but when the Malaysia Boleh razzmatazz come into play, it will be a big negative to Msian badminton in general.

    Yes, we do want that gold BUT not at the expense of our badminton. As such, I hope should we win in Beijing we have the maturity to do what is right.

    In the modern sports, it's all about winning. Greece ran away with the Euro2004 and it was a fluke... but who cares? the Euro medal still safe n sound in their trophy room...

    The same goes for JXP... OK, LCW will win OG08 GOLD in style n maturity.:p

    LOL : "Do u we want the gold or not??"
    As though the GOLD will be in our hand for sure IF WE REALLY WANT IT !

    Big Boss or not should not get overconfidence. U never know what will be the outcome IF happened to be both Ld & LCW in trmendous form during OG.

    At the same time.. dont underestimate the other players. We are talking as if only Lindan and LCW is playing in the Olympics. We have to be careful with other chinese players as well as the Koreans.
