Malaysia competed in the 2008 Summer Olympics, held in Beijing, People's Republic of China. Malaysia had 33 athletes who took part in nine sports in the games. The Malaysian contingent sent to Beijing was the biggest since the Melbourne Olympics in 1956.[1] Lee Chong Wei won the nation's first medal in twelve years in the badminton men's singles final despite losing to Lin Dan, from the host country China. It was the second silver medal ever won throughout Malaysia's participation history since its nationhood in 1957.
