Datuk Lee Chong Wei is the No. 1 shuttler in the world and Malaysia’s most succesful badminton player. He is our national hero, being the Malaysian badminton player to reach the single finals in the Beijing Olympics and is currently competing in the England Olympics.
He is especially known for his extraordinary defensive play and quick movements towards attacking shots. His most well-known attribute is his signature forehand cross court smashes. He is a sportsman that inspires the nation with his determination to reach for the top. His motto is “Aim for success. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life.”
As such, we at The BrandLaureate were proud to award Datuk Lee Chong Wei The BrandLaureate Grand Master Brand Icon Leadership Awards 2011. He is truly an ICON to all athletes in Malaysia.
