The Star Media Group will present both Datuk Lee Chong Wei and Pandelela Rinong Pamg RM100,000 each for bringing the nation together.
Both athletes are Malaysia’s only medallist at the London 2012 Olympics with Chong Wei bringing home a silver medal, while Pandelela clinching the bronze.
Star Publications (M) Bhd executive deputy chairman Datuk Vincent Lee said the reward was a small token of appreciation from The People’s Paper to the People’s Champions.
Lee said it was such a joy to see the people so united, cheering our athletes on, from wherever they were.[News source]
