Malaysia moves up to 52nd spot with Pandelela's bronze
LONDON: On a night which saw the United States pip China in the medal tally, Malaysia moved into a tie for 52nd spot with a silver and a bronze from badminton and diving.
After Datuk Lee Chong Wei's silver medal feat in badminton, flag bearer Pandelela Rinong won a bronze medal today from the women's 10m Platform diving to put Malaysia level with Estonia, Indonesia, Serbia, Thailand and Tunisia.
Another silver will hoist Malaysia to joint 46th spot while a bronze will see the country's position move up to 49th spot.
Apart from Chong Wei and Pandelela, another diver, Bryan Nickson Lomas would start his quest for a medal in the men's 10m Platform that starts tomorrow.
However, with only three more days before the London Olympics draws down its curtain, Malaysia's medal hopes will only hinge on diving, especially after Heidi Gan failed in her bid to finish on the podium of the 10km Marathon Open Water Swimming competition that ended today.
Heidi Gan who is based in Perth, Australia finished a respectable 16 in the race won by Hungary's Eva Risztov. -- BERNAMA
