Did my routine Twitter check after sahur and found a delightful news: Pandelela Rinong won Bronze for the Women's 10m Diving Platform.
I had tears in my eyes, and am feeling a bit emotional right now. Sebak rasanya.
The 19 year-old Pandelela made Malaysian history with this bronze medal win - the first Malaysian woman athlete to win the Olympics and the first sport to win a medal besides badminton. AND she was the first woman flag bearer during the Olympics opening ceremony.
How incredible is that??
These two Olympic medals make celebrating Hari Merdeka more special ;)
Thank you Pandelela Rinong and coach. We are ever so proud!
A very, VERY proud and somewhat emotional Malaysian,
