    I saw this article a month ago, funny thing was Adam Thompson, the writer of this article stated that Howard was the person on the right, here is me sending him an e-mail:

    In your article published on the 16th of October in the Wall Street Journal, you stated that Howard Bach was the person on the right, in actuality, Howard is on the left lunging for the bird, the player on the right is Tony Gunawan. Might want to study further into badminton an their players instead of making a simple mistake. One could easily differ from Howard Bach and Tony Gunawan.

    His reply:
    We will run a correction. I got the incorrect information from the Bank of America, but should have double-checked.

    Neat article..

    ..i don't recall seeing this article posted in BC, yet..So, thanks for sharing, krantikt!:cool:
    Btw, i've emailed Adam Thompson, thanking him for writing the article.
    In the mean time, i'll be waiting to see that BofA commercial, featuring Howard, as one of its athletes.:cool:..

    Excellent find. Upon further searching, here are a couple stories on Howard Bach and badminton (not bad, Washington Post and USA Today)

    http://blog.washingtonpost.com/dcsportsbog/2008/02/badminton_star_comes_to_dc.html
    http://www.usatoday.com/sports/olympics/2008-03-19-badminton-qanda-bach_N.htm

    Link to Bank of America press release
    http://newsroom.bankofamerica.com/index.php?s=press_releases&item=7850

    And its US Olympic website,

    You can find the wallpaper below with Howard and Tony's pictures along with other US Olympians.

    Here is the 2008 Bank of America Hometown Hopeful. Not sure it is a brochure or a poster or something else.

    Anyway, I am a BofA customer and just sent them a note to thank them. I sent via their website. I guess anyone can send via this email address, hometownhopefuls@bankofamerica.com
