New Delhi, May 25 IANS | 4 months ago

For badminton legend Lee Chong Wei, it remained a story of so near yet so far, as Japan beat Malaysia 3-2 in a tense and thrilling World Men's Team Championship to lift their maiden Thomas Cup title at the Siri Fort Sports Complex here Sunday.


Men's singles World No.1 Chong Wei is a great of the sport but still has not been able to earn the top prize in any of badminton's majors, be it the Olympics, World Championships, Thomas Cup or the Sudirman Cup.

The 31-year-old has lost two Olympic finals to China's Lin 'Super' Dan in 2008 and 2012, settling down for the silver.

Chong Wei also went down to Dan in two World Championship finals in 2011 and 2013 to have two silvers in addition to a bronze he got from the 2005 edition.

In the Sudirman Cup (World Mixed Team Championship), Chong Wei has only a mere bronze from the 2009 edition while in the Thomas Cup, he has three bronzes (2006, 2008, 2010) and now a silver from the 2014 tournament here.

But the gold from a major tournament still eludes him. The question is will he be able to finally achieve it at the upcoming World Championships to be held in Copenhagen in August?
