Chong Wei dismayed by abuse against national shuttlers after Olympic loss

Chong Wei dismayed by abuse against national shuttlers after Olympic loss

Former national shuttler Lee Chong Wei has rallied support for national badminton mixed doubles pair Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying after their recent loss at the Tokyo Olympics 2020.

Taking to Facebook, Lee (above) said he felt dismayed by negative online comments made against the pair after their second straight Group D defeat that virtually puts an end to their medal hopes.

"As a former teammate, I felt so much for them. All I want to say is I know these players.

"They went to court with only one aim, one goal. To win the game for the flag on the chest, to make us proud," said the three-time Olympian.

"No athlete wants to lose. But that is the reality, in every match and every game, there will be one winner and one loser.

"Sometimes it is just not your day," said Lee, a former top world shuttler with three Olympics silver medals.

He also urged Malaysian supporters to empathise with the players, not to mock and desert them after a loss.

In a special message to the pair, Lee said: "Juniors, I'm proud of you. Real Malaysians are proud of you."

Separately, Goh and Chan both took to Facebook with an apology to their fans and supporters.

Goh said she accepted the defeat but urged people to not forget her efforts, and that she would give her all in the last group match.

Similarly, Chan also apologised for the double defeat and performance that did not meet expectations.

Earlier today, the 2016 Rio Olympics silver medallists went down 12-21, 15-21 to Germany's Mark Lamsfuss-Isabel Herttrich in Group D at the Musashino Forest Sports Plaza in Tokyo.

They had yesterday lost to Hong Kong's Tang Chun Man-Tse Ying Suet 18-21, 21-10, 16-21 in the opener.


  1. I thought Bullyland like to shout ONE Country Two Systems but why are they allowed to field TWO Olympic Teams, Second One From Hongkieland? So now Bullyland can field TWO Badminton Teams. This is Not Fair.

    Even Britannia not greedy. They field only ONE Olympic Team. Not three from England, Scotland and Wales.

    1. Wakakakakaka…

      Truly know-nothing fart AGAIN!

      Why don't u put the question to IOC?

      How do u know that CPC China didn't protest when the Taiwan participation was passed under strong arm-twisting?

      Ooop… fart filled well has never any records of such news!

  2. Nothing wrong with defeat, but it was very disappointing for Malaysia to be knocked out early by unknown teams.

    Germany ? They are superpowers in many other sports , but ... it badminton.

    Hong Kong ? you know , most Chinese Malaysians detest the currrent younger generation Hongkies.


    1. What a fart!

      All reasonable people would detest those rioting HK εΊŸι’!

    2. Not most other Malaysians.
      Many Malays and Indians, and a Very Small minority of non-Zombie Chinese Malaysians....wakakaka...applaud the Hongkie youths for standing up to the Chinese Communist Party Bullies.

    3. Wakakakakaka…


      As been circulating in yr fart filled well lah.

      BTW, how do u going to jel with yr constant know-nothing fart about the loyalty of the Nons, especially the Chinese m'sians of young & old?

      Ooop… maybe just a fart to ease yr chronic CPC/China/Chinese constipation!

    4. "for Malaysia to be knocked out early by unknown teams"

      Truly a simply fart of know-nothingness!

      What about Hong Kong's Cheung Ka Long beat defending champion Italian Daniele Garozzo to claim the Olympic men's individual fencing title on Monday.

      HK, a fencing superpower?

      Similarly, Japan's dynamic duo of Jun Mizutani and Mima Ito narrowly defeated long-invincible Chinese pair Xu Xin and Liu Shiwen to give the host country their first Olympic table tennis gold in the mixed doubles event on Monday.

      How about the pinoy weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz won the first-ever Olympic gold medal for the Philippines, ending the nation's 97-year drought.

      Mfer, just say u want to fart to ease yr chronic constipation lah. No need to perfume up yr foul gaseous.

    5. Typical Communist Bullshiter.

      I talk about badminton, he quickly switch subjects to fencing and weightlifting.

      Weightlifting with shuttlecocks kah ?
      Or fencing with racquet kah ?

    6. Wakakakakaka…

      "Nothing wrong with defeat, but it was very disappointing for Malaysia to be knocked out early by unknown teams.

      Germany ? They are superpowers in many other sports , but ... it badminton"

      Is that flowery fart implying ONLY badminton?

      Or u r playing yr fluid England in covering up yr anmokausai bias with "talk about badminton" fart after been f*cked kau-kau?

      One DOESN'T have to beat around those tacked linguistics BS to know yr underlying detest!

  3. The way NYT changed the Medal Ranking from the official ranking so that the US wouldn't be behind China !

    Pathetic AmeriKKKa will cheat if it can't beat the competition. Instead of counting the number of golds for top ranking, the sour grapes US uses 'most medals so far'....hehehe...American exceptionalism at its best.

    However, as of today's tally, China leads not only in golds but also overall medal count. Eat your cheating heart out, you fucking Americans.

    1. borrow words from Clausewitz , the Olympic Games today , just like the Olympic Games in ancient Greece, were a continuation of War by other means...

      It is no accident that many of the Olympic events that have directly descended from the ancient Olympic Games - javelin, shot put, discus, archery , wrestling, equestrian Games, heptathlon, are all olden day essential skills of War.

      In ancient days it was
      Athens vs Sparta
      USA vs China

    2. Very typical of a sour loser's rant!

      When the win suits them, it's to compete for the strongest, highest & fastest.

      When the tides turn, it's competing for national might!
