Malaysian wins bronze in London Olympics 2012

Malaysian wins bronze in London Olympics 2012

Pandelela’s victory a boost for sports

The winning of a bronze medal by national diver Pandelela Rinong Pamg,in the women’s 10meter dive is another feat by an ordinary Malaysian. The win by the 19-year-old Sarawakian marks Malaysia's second medal at this year's Olympic summer games after Lee Chong Wei's silver medal in the men's badminton singles. Her victory also marks Malaysia's first ever Olympic medal from a sport other than badminton.

We salute Pedelela for her victory that has brought glory to the nation at a time when we least expected and hope her achievement will act as a motivation for other youngsters throughout the country to excel in whatever they do.

Pendelela’s victory simply goes to show that we are not lack of talent among the people and what is needed is a better and more effective means to tap the potentials among ordinary Malaysians to bear the fruits of success that would take us to greater heights in future Olympics.

It is time to look for talented young man and women in not just in badminton and diving but in every other sport that are being competed in the Olympics. The various sports associations must take this victory as a challenge to develop their respective sports in the country to international levels. Go to every nook and corner of the country in search of talented young men and women to be trained in the sport they love.

Pendelela’s victory should be morale booster for all in particular our sports organizations that they can do it if they want. It is not enough to merely shout,  “Malaysia Bolih” but quietly strive hard to make that slogan come true and not remain just a rhetoric as most of our slogans are today.
