Last Update: 29/06/2019

KUALA LUMPUR, June 29 (Bernama) -- National badminton legend, Datuk Lee Chong Wei, 37, who was recently recognised by The BrandLaureate Book of World Records for being the badminton player who spent the longest period -- or more specifically, 6 years and 8 months -- ranked world No. 1, said he hopes a Malaysian will better his record.

“Thank you The BrandLaureate Book of World Records. This honour means a lot to me,” he wrote in an Instagram posting today.

 “I hope the person who does break my record is also a Malaysian, is more terrer (greater), more sturdy and maybe more ensem (handsome),” he added.

The three-time Olympic silver medallist with 69 championships under his belt and who was once top-ranked in the men’s single’s event for 199 consecutive weeks, retired from competition on June 13.

Lee was honoured with The BrandLaureate Book of World Records accolade at a ceremony that took place on Thursday at a hotel in the capital.
