Lee Chong Wei is assured of a whooping RM 300,000, but if he wins the gold medal, he will get a total of RM 1 million. WOW! In the recent history of them meeting in major tournaments, Lin Dan has won 9 times, while Chong Wei only 5. So, there is a greater possibility of Lin Dan winning. This year, Lin Dan and Chong Wei have both each beaten each other once, in the Thomas Cup semi-finals, and the Swiss Open Final.
So far, Lin Dan has cruised through the Olympics beating everybody in straight sets. While, Lee, has suffered a little resistance from the Korea player in the semi-finals.
So, the main question is, who will win tonight?
