Pandalela created history for herself and Malaysia for being the first Malaysian for:
  • First Malaysian women to win a medal at the Olympics
  • Breaking the dominance of Badminton as as medal winner at Olympics
  • Youngest Malaysian Women to win a medal at Olympics
  • First women as flag bearer for Malaysian contingent

The bronze means Pandelela has won a medal at every level, including a silver in the 10m platform at the 2010 Junior Olympics at Sydney.

It also means she will receive RM150,000 from the National Sports Council and a lifetime pension of RM2,000 monthly.

This Bloggers comment: She has a few more Olympics to dive and can she has the potential to deliver our first Olympic Gold Medal at Rio2016, being to find a replacement at Dato' Lee Chong Wei's calibre is far fetched.
