To see previous day's results, click here.

On the 3rd day, 11/08/08, the archery team lost to Italy 213-218. It is history that Malaysia's archery team could enter the quarter finals, because Malaysia's archery team has never qualified to enter the Olympics. In badminton, Lee Chong Wei beat Ronald Susilo of Singapore easily 21-13, 21-14. It is a BIG surprise that Wong Choon Han beat Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia. Taufik Hidayat is one of the better players in the world. Yet Wong Choon Han beat Taufik Hidayat, 21-19, 21-16. In women's singles, Wong Mew Choo cruised pass Petya Nedelcheva, 21-16, 21-18. In swimming, Daniel Bego finished 37th out of 44 swimmers in the 200m butterfly event, clocking 2:01.28, missing the national record set by himself, 1:59.40. Siow Yi Ting fnished seventh in heat 2 in the 200m individual medley event. She nearly beat her own national record by a whisker. The national record is 2:16.92.
