No Olympics Gold Medal For Malaysia Yet As Peng Soon-Liu Ying Fall Short In Finals
Mixed double shuttlers Chan Peng Soon and Goh Liu Ying had to settle for a silver medal after failing to defeat Indonesia's Liliyana Natsir and Tontowi Ahmad in the final match today, 18 August
Tension was running high for Peng Soon-Liu Ying as Malaysia’s first ever gold Olympic medal hangs in the balance but the pressure proved to be too much to handle for our shuttlers :(
On the plus side, we won our first Olympics medal in the mixed doubles category!
And don't worry, all hope is not lost! We still have the men's doubles and men's singles to count on! Keep the faith, fellow Malaysians!
The men's doubles team of Goh V Shem and Tan Wee Kiong will take on Chinese pair Fu Haifeng and Zhang Nan in the gold medal match on Friday, 19 August.
Lee Chong Wei will be facing his long-time nemesis Lin Dan in the men's singles semi-finals this coming Friday as well.
