Lee Chong wants to play 2020 Olympics

Malaysian shuttler Lee Chong Wei, who beat World No. 1 Victor Axelsen at the Malaysian Open badminton tournament, says he wants to maintain his form and play the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

“I just consider myself to be an old player who has to go all out when playing younger players. Hopefully I can maintain a good condition and play two more Malaysian Open tournaments, and continue my career to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games,” he said.

While admitting that his supporters on home turf gave him some courage, Lee said he did not feel pressured when facing Axelsen.

“I just consider myself to be an old player who has to go all out when playing the younger players,” he said.

He said as he is getting older but there is still some “fire” within him.

“Hopefully I can maintain a good condition and play two more Malaysian Open tournaments, and continue my career to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games,” he said.
