It will be either Gold or Silver for Malaysia...

Today will be the day Michael Phelps tackle his final bid to win eight gold medals at a single Olympics, it is also the day, Lee Chong Wei will face Lin Dan of China for the gold medal! If Chong Wei wins, he will make history. The first ever gold medal for Malaysia.

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?
