Singapore wins at least a silver medal in Olympics!

HTML clipboard



Move aside Li Jiawei! Feng Tianwei is the new darling of Singapore! Tianwei won her vital second singles match in today's Semi Finals of the Olympics Table Tennis event to help Singapore beat South Korea 3-2. She was the No 73 in the world rankings back in August last year. She entered the match today at No 9 - what an amazing rise in rankings - and now she can be proud of herself for getting Singapore's long awaited Olympic medal. The whole of Singapore will cheer her name!

I was live blogging the match on my Twitter. It was nail biting stuff. You can read my Tweets here:

-Singapore takes 1st set against the Koreans in the Olympics Table Tennis Semi-Final. 2nd set now on with Li Jiawei! (First set was won by Tianwei)
-Li Jiawei blew it once again. She has just lost the 2nd singles match. It's Singapore 1 South Korea 1. Doubles next.
-Doubles on now. Singapore's Li Jiawei and Wang Yuegu has taken first game! Jiawei has to forget about her singles match and perform!
-Singapore leads South Korea 2-1 in the Olympics Table Tennis Semi-Final! (Both Jiawei and Yuegue beat their South Korean counterparts in the Doubles)
-What a nail biting game! Unfortunately South Korea has just tied the game 2-2. Tianwei has to win it for Singapore next. Go Tianwei! (Yuegu lost in her 2nd Singles match)
-Feng Tianwei was No 73 in the world rankings in August 2007. Now she is No 9! She cld be Singapore's darling if she wins this match!
-Go Singapore!!! It's 11-7 to Tianwei! Come on Tiawei! Win the next two games and you'll win an Olympic medal for Singapore!
-I'm not a big fan of table tennis but this is intense!
-Tianwei has done it! Now its 2-0! One more game and it's over!!! Come on Singapore! Damn Im feeling so patriotic now.
-Shit! Tianwei! Focus girl. Focus.
-It's 2-1 now. Sigh. But Tianwei still leads. I think she has to stop thinking about the $750k prize money.
-5-0! Come on Tianwei! Come on Singapore!!!!! Do it! Do it!
-7-5 now. It's so close for Tianwei. I hope she does it. Singapore will never be this close to a silver medal again!
-Fark!! The South Korean has leveled it to 7-7.
-Every hair is standing on the back of my neck and arms as I watch this.
-She's done it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
-Singapore ladies table tennis team gets at least a silver thanks to Feng Tianwei! We are off to the Final! Amazing! Truly amazing!

Congrats again to Tianwei and the rest of the Singapore team. Now let's go for the Gold medal ok?
