Siow Lee Chan - Bronze Medalist - Paralympic Games

Datuk Lee Chong Wei got his Datukship, when he won a Silver (originally I had a mistake, by writing that he got a Bronze. Thanks for pointing out!) Medal during Beijing Olympics.

Barely 1 month later, Siow Lee Chan has our Jalur Gemilang flying again in Beijing Olympics, when she won a Bronze Medal for Powerlifting Women Under 56kg in Paralympic Games. That is World Number 3.

She lifted 95kg to improve on her personal best of 92.5kg achieved at the 2004 Athens Paralympics.

Syabas Lee Chan! Hopefully she would get equally rewarded for her great feat! This ended Malaysia's drought of 16 years in Paralympics.

Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!

Thanks for pointing out. My mistake...

On whether would get Datuk, guess we shall wait and see. There hasn't been much hype about it yet.
