Nice touch by the guys at sports247.my here, as Pandelela Rinong Pamg somersaulted her way into our hearts with a bronze medal in the women's 10m platform in the London Olympics. Ka'an mu'u, Malaysia, that's For you Malaysia in Bidayuh.
For latest updates on Malaysian sports, log on to the newly-launched sports news portal helmed by former Malay Mail journo, Graig Nunis.
Back to Pandelela, in the process of landing the bronze, the lass, nicknamed Lulu Dolphin created a number of firsts. She is the first Malaysian woman to win a medal at the Olympics, the first Bukit Jalil Sports School product to climb the podium, the youngest Malaysian Olympic medallist, the first Sarawakian to nail a medal and the first National Sportswoman of the Year to win an Olympic medal.
The 19-year old is also the second flagbearer at the march past to scoop a medal after Razif Sidek in 1992! For the record she is the third Sarawakian to be accorded the honour of carrying our flag at the march past, after Kuda Ditta in 1964 and Bryan Nickson Lomas in 2004.
