    Zheng Bo/Gao Ling has been knocked out...
    HE/YU is not as strong as ZB/GL...

    China is not able to clean sweep 5 golds...

    It's definitely possible... just how possible. China still has at least 1 representative in all 5 categories' semi finals or final, so the chance is there.

    MS. LD, CJ
    MD. Fu/Cai
    WS.XXF, LL, ZN
    WD. Yu/DU, ZYW/Wei
    XD/HE/YU

    no other country can do the same thing... so already quite a success for them.:cool:

    As long as there is chinese player in each of every event, I wouldn't prematurely say China is not able to do a clean sweep. Just less likely for now. I would wait till either their XD or MD sole representative get knock out from the semi before stating the no clean sweep statement. They will have finalist on MD, WD, and WS. China's target was never a 5 gold clean sweep to start with anyway.

    What's wrong with setting a high goal for oneself?
    Is this standard too high for you to comprehend?

    how many gold(s) INA is targeting?
    We all know MAL fans were targeting 2 golds

    I think 5 is next to impossible. 4 is a great result, 3 would be up to expectations given the team and who is left, and 2 would be below expectations.

    LYB will lose his job if they don't at least take 2-3 golds.

    If Cai/Fu and LD can take gold then China bags at least 3 probably 4.

    I wouldn't count out the He/Du? They are playing well, but I have a sneakly suspicion Lee Yong Dae & partner will surprise this time around.

    i agree with that.

    and to clarify, China's goal is to "hold 3, aim for 5"

    if one don't have high goal to start with, then one will never achieve it.

    i still don't understand the hatred/bias that some people have.

    The coach of the Chinese Gymnastics Men's Team swear he will jump out of a certain tall building [to his certain death, he assumes]... if his team does not win the gold.

    Didn't LYB made a similar 'death swear'?!? If he doesn't sweep all 5 badminton gold medals, he will commit suicide or something...?!?

    I would rather MAS get gold [through LCW in MS]... 2 golds for INA [MD and XD], 2 silvers [WS and XD]...

    KOR get 1 gold [through WD]... CHN can have the 1 WS gold, they deserve to win this category... :p

    hm...........any deal has been cut off?:D:D
    I have to admit that featuring INA WS in Semifinal is amazing, beyond INA's expectation and I hope Maria can fight to go to final...this is once of lifetime...she may not have this chance in next 4 yrs........take it while you have a chance...
