RM1 million still intact (sigh)...

WELL, we have to wait for another four years to renew our efforts to land an Olympic gold medal. And the RM1 million that could have gone to Lee Chong Wei's bank account will now wait for a rightful recipient.

Let's not talk too much about Chong Wei's defeat. If we are all disappointed, I can't imagine what the young man must have felt. He made so many unforced errors that made Lin Dan look invincible.

Watching the Olympics can be very inspiring - makes me want to tell all our young boys and girls to be all they want to be, to be all they can be!

When you read about athletes competing in four Olympic games and still good enough to compete in the final rounds in Beijing, I wonder whether our sportsmen and sportswomen have the same kind of spirit and determination in their heart.

When poor countries can produce Olympic champions, what about us whose per capita exceeds many from the Olympic list of medal winners. I doubt if we can produce a sprint champion within four years. But what about shooting, archery, gymnastic, cycling, table tennis,the 10,000km?

We can't forever be Jaguh Kampong.

Tuan...salah satu caranya haramkan ahli politik menjawat atau memegang apa-apa jawatan dalam persatuan sukan.

Kembalikan sukan kepada ahli yang benar benar layak dan jauhkan dari karenah politik.

Kita banyak bakat tapi tenggelam ditengah jalan dek karenah ahli politik yang tamak dan tidak tahu apa-apa bahkan kalau lawan golf (sukan kegemaran mereka) banyak yg lingkup.

Just wonder kenapa anwar,keluarga dia dan semua penyokong da yg beragama islam bermati-matian mempertahankan PERAKUAN BERSUMPAH BALA,RAJA PETRA,DR MYANMAR tetapi menafikan sekeras-kerasnya PENGAKUAN BERSUMPAH yang dibuat oleh SAIFUL dengan nama ALLAH??
Adakah mereka lebih percaya PENGAKUAN BERSUMPAH Mahkamah daripada PENGAKUAN BERSUMPAH dengan nama ALLAH??

-Kecewa juga Chong Wei tidak dapat emas, tapi perak pun cukup daripada tidak ada langsung, Chong Wei kalah kpd Lin Dan pemain no.1 Dunia...dan dia bukan kalah kpd No. 3 atau 4 dunia..
-Selagi politik masuk campur dlm urusan sukan & pendidikan selagi itu M'sia tidak mencapai kemajuan dlm kedua bidang ini...
