Property brand hands Lee Chong Wei a house worth RM1.5 million
A visit to a property showroom normally doesn’t grant anyone a free home unit. Unless of course, you are Datuk Lee Chong Wei.
The national shuttler visited a Cheras showroom and had reportedly shown interest in investing in a condominium unit days before he left to compete for the Rio Olympics 2016.
Fast forward to today, property developer Orando Holdings said it is giving the 32-year-old Olympian athlete a complimentary condominium unit worth RM1.5 million for his contribution to the Malaysian sports scene.
According to The Star, the gift, which is a fully-furnished three-bedroom unit at Lavile exclusive condominium of 1,100 sq ft in Taman Maluri will enjoy the view of the capital’s iconic Kuala Lumpur City Centre. The 38-storey condominium is estimated to be completed in 2020.
Orando managing director Datuk Eng Wei Chun said for now, the said condominium doesn’t include a badminton court facility. Eng (pictured) said he wanted to wait for the Rio games to end for the big announcement and hopes this would inspire more young Malaysians to excel in sports.
The developer said it sees the act as a form of corporate social responsibility.
Lee, who’s now a three-time Olympic silver medallist, will also be receiving RM637,888 from the National Sports Council and the Badminton Association of Malaysia. Other rewards include a Proton Suprima S 1.6L Turbo Premium and a RM3,000 monthly lifetime pension.

Lee Chong Wei Retire
Lee Chong Wei, it is learnt, is facing a serious health problem which will most likely bring his illustrious career to a premature end as he undergoes treatment.
According to a source today, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the 36-year-old player is now in Taiwan for medical treatment.
And there is every likelihood, the three-time Olympic silver medallist will have to hang up his racket.
If this happens, his participation in the Indonesia Open, where he bowed out in the semi-finals on July 7, would be his last international outing after a 17-year career.
Chong Wei’s health issue made the headlines after the BA of Malaysia (BAM) confirmed that he was withdrawing from the World Championships in Nanjing, China which begin on Monday and the Asian Games in Indonesia from August 19 to 28.
According to a statement issued by the national badminton association last Tuesday, Chong Wei was facing breathing problems, and he would need to rest for a month to undergo treatment and would not take part in any form of physical activities.
“This is very sad news when our badminton hero, who has contributed so much to the country, is suddenly facing health problems,” said the source.
“Everybody knows that he is a model athlete who always takes good care of his health and fitness.
“What we can do now is pray that Chong Wei makes a full, speedy recovery.”
Meanwhile, Chong Wei could not be reached for comment yesterday on the matter.
In his illustrious career, Chong Wei has won 69 titles on the international stage and his best achievement is winning three Olympic silver medals in 2008, 2012 and 2016, and emerging as runner-up in the World Championships thrice as well in 2011, 2013 and 2015.
Now is the time for Malaysians to pray for Chong Wei’s full recovery after what he has done for the country and the sport.

June Wei the favourite to replace Chong Wei at Asiad
The Star Online – 27th July, 2018
In an unexpected move, the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) have named national shuttler Cheam June Wei to replace Lee Chong Wei in the men’s singles at the Asian Games in Indonesia next month.
BAM president Datuk Seri Norza Zakaria said the 21-year-old who is the Dutch International champion is currently the preferred choice of national men’s singles head coach Datuk Misbun Sidek.
June Wei also finished as runner-up at the Finnish Open in April and the Austrian Open in February.
The national team’s hopes at the Asiad and World Championships in Nanjing was dealt a massive blow on Tuesday after the 35-year-old Chong Wei withdrew from the two tournaments due to a respiratory problem and will be out for at least a month.
“Among the names considered were Iskandar (Zulkarnain Zainuddin), Lim Chi Wing and June Wei,” said Norza, adding that several factors including Iskandar’s knee injury were discussed.
The BAM president said due to Chong Wei’s absence, the earlier target of three medals by the badminton team at the Asiad will have to be reduced to two.
Norza who is also OCM president said they will send in June Wei’s name as soon as possible as they will also need to file an appeal to the Indonesian Asian Games Organising Committee (INASGOC).
“Though the process of naming the athletes have already closed, but for specific cases like withdrawal because of medical reasons, we will appeal to INASGOC at the soonest,” said Norza”
He added that they are currently giving Chong Wei time and space to undergo his recovery.
“We are giving him time and privacy to be with his family to undergo the recovery process and maybe we can give updates within three weeks to a month.”
The other three in the men’s singles line-up are debutants Lee Zii Jia, Leong Jun Hao and Soong Joo Ven while the men’s doubles players are Goh V Shem, Tan Wee Kiong, Ong Yew Sin, Teo Ee Yi, Chan Peng Soon and Goh Soon Huat.
