KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak last night congratulated national ace shuttler, Datuk Lee Chong Wei for reaching the final round of the World Badminton Championships 2015 in Jakarta.
The prime minister also cheered on Chong Wei to bring back the world title in the men’s singles final match today.
“We’re in the World Badminton Championships final! Congrats @LeeChongWei. Msia supports you. Let’s bring back the title! #KamiTeamMalaysia,” Najib said in his Twitter account.
Chong Wei reached the final round of the championships after defeating second seed from Denmark, Jan O Jorgensen 21-7, 21-19, in the semi-finals at Istora Senayan, Jakarta, last night.
With the win, Chong Wei will meet defending champion Chen Long of China today, in a ‘re-match’ of the final in the same tournament last year, held in Copenhagen.
