    They haven't dominated every sport on the courts either, and neither on the table ( table tennis ) :p.
    Many of them are naturally athletic and with the aid of *training and practise*, they could easily be top badminton players too.. Hmm.. maybe.
    It seems like that asian people tend to dominate 'quick' sports such as table tennis and badminton. And of course out of the blue, there's Germany and Denmark which is quite strong in table tennis and Denmark's good in badminton too.

    From what i concern,african players play a harder,more power,faster game than the westerns.Asians might not have such a big power,but..asians r built for speed.
