Lee Chong Wei’s dream of a final apperance at the next year’s Olympic in Rio took another bitter twist as he was dumped out of the qualifying round of the Victor Korea Open 2015.
We must accept the face that age is no longer on Chong Wei’s side. The fast pace of badminton and the amount of training that one have to put in to be at the highest level might just be a step too far for Lee Chong Wei.
The latest lost to an unknown Kwang Hee Heo 19-21, 19-21 is surely hard to accept but at times reality is just so cruel.
Chong Wei must now ponder on his next step on whether to shoulder on for another shot at the Rio Olympics 2016 or just call it quits as time and age is no more a luxury for him.
