Should we forget that elusive Olympic gold medal?

“The race is to now on to step up from being merely a participant to a competitor.”

Those were the words of National Sports Institute CEO Datuk Dr. Ramlan Abdul Aziz when met at the KL Sports Medicine Centre yesterday.

Lee Chong Wei is being attended by Dr Saw Khay Yong, the man who had done tonnes of research on stem cell treatment over the years. Even his mentor Dr. Nicholas Geary is down for stem cell treatment and is eager for his doctors in UK to come to KLSMC to study the methods.

If you are wondering why the little advertisement on KLSMC and stem cells above, don't. It is not. LCW is undergoing stem cells treatment to speed-en up his healing process to get him ready for the Olympics.

Also instead of the stem cells being injected once a week, like in usual cases, LCW will have one every five days on three occasions.

The rest will be depend on how his body reacts to it and his mental readiness to step back into the courts.

The doctors have admitted, getting LCW back to his optimum for the Olympics will be the hardest part of his recovery.
