How Lee Chong Wei United a Nation

Despite the many challenges we face as a multicultural nation, one thing that has always brought us together as a nation: sports, particularly the hard-hitting racquet sport of badminton. On this episode, we explore the history and cultural significance of badminton to Malaysia, discuss how it has constantly united us all irrespective of race, religion, colour or creed, and also talk about the Lee Chong Wei vs Lindan Olympics trilogy that captured our hearts and reverberated our souls.
