In Athens, he could only dream of it as he knows others have strong claims. In Beijing, he wants it - yes, he expressedly mentioned that he wants it and he has a chance at it. He knows he has to be man above men to take it. Sony will really be his first hurdle and if he beats him, he knows Everest is conquerable. His second hurdle, just as tough, is the '2nd best dressed but nowhere to go' man called BAO. BAO, like LCW, has never won any major title (Olympics or WC) and frequently comes second to LD and others. LCW loves playing him obviously rather than LD. The Final hurdle, if it is LD, it will be Everest. People claim after Everest, Nirvana waits. My prediction has always, without pretense, been LCW to win gold. If he had not performed, I would have not dared to be so vocal, needless to say. Why 2 million buckeroos you asked ? Well, LCW wants WMC, his loved one, to win and together claim the generous RM 1M a piece from the Malaysian government. This is the greatest incentive given by the Malaysian government - one cannot downgrade the importance of this, especially when the two can get that (now I am not saying glory for the country is not important, it is just as important). Will it happen ? Certainly two persons share that aspiration. The gleam in their eyes tells it all.
