Malaysia's Gold Medal Hopes...

....rest on the shoulders of their Men's Doubles pair, WK Tan and VS Goh, their Mixed Doubles pair, PS Chan and LY Goh, and, of course, Lee Chong Wei in Badminton.

Given the form of the men's duo, and given the fact that the Indonesian mixed doubles pair of Natsir and Ahmad have a 100% straight sets record so far (including victory over the Malaysian pair who they already met in the Group Stage), and if we put aside Lee Chong Wei for the time being on the basis that he's not yet made the final, I reckon the Men's Doubles pair has the best chance of winning Malaysia's first ever gold.

That is of course not to discount Lee Chong Wei by any means...who now has to face Lin Dan in the semis.

It will be very interesting times ahead.
