Daniel will show off his need for speed in the Mens 50m Freestyle at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

I will do my utmost to bring honour to Sri Lanka at Beijing, said Lee who added that his next objective is to swim at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. To this end, Lee is working hard to achieve his ambition with nine swim sessions, three gym sessions and physiotherapy sessions in a week alongside his studies
