Shuttler courts question marks over marriage date
SEPANG: Lee Chong Wei's face was glowing when he stepped out at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, partly due to the overwhelming support from the fans who turned up to welcome him home.
The other reason was the presence of his long-time girlfriend Wong Mew Choo.
The former Malaysian women's No. 1 returned home with him after spending the whole week rooting for him in London.
When pressed about his relationship with Mew Choo and if they would be tying the knot any time soon, Lee replied: “Should be (with her). But no, not this year though.”
“Let's talk about badminton first,” he add-ed.
Lee had announced, prior to the Games, that he would get married soon, but he did not reveal the name of the love of his life although it was an open secret that he was dating Mew Choo.
Their relationship, which goes way back to their junior days, has not all been smooth sailing. They broke up a few times before getting together again.
If everything goes well, Chong Wei is expected to be glowing again next year when he walks down the aisle with Mew Choo.
