Syabas! Anak Bangsa Malaysia!

Sarawak born diver Pamg Pandelela Rinong clinched a historic Olympic medal for Malaysia on 9th August 2012. It was the first-ever diving and non-badminton medal of Malaysia; the second medal the country grabbed at London Games. This of course does not take into account M. Vasuki's bronze in 1988 when taekwondo was an exhibition sport in the summer Olympics.

Apart from Gold medallist Chen Ruolin of China who was in a master class of her own the competition between the rest of the finalists was very keen for Silver and Bronze. Rather than undervalue Pamg's achievement, I believe this scenario speaks volumes for her competitive spirit and grit. At one stage, Pamg was in 10th position and she never gave up.

Thank you Pamg. Malaysia salutes you for giving us hope.
