    I still remember this. The SG crowd were booing Lin Dan when he was making the excuse speech.
    Oh well ...

    To me,what kwun did is highly commendable, fair and just; I believe it has nothing to do with whether he is a CJ fan (which I doubt so), he would have done the same across the board, regardless of the player concerned. Now we know who is the pathetic one.

    what inappropriate language use ???

    I just said in my post 'CJ is a prick'

    if you consider this as inappropriate language use, you are seriously over your head... and i would not want to know you in real life either....

    CJ's 'misfortune' was to be world ranked no.5 during the LOG qualification period and a CHN player as well, otherwise every other country would proudly claim him as their own.

    Instead, he's to slog his guts out playing 22 tournaments, be chastised for receiving a little 'help' from his colleagues though he made it through in the end on his own merits, and risked his health and injury for which his fitness suffered even til today, all that for the nation not just for himself. If WR5 isn't good enough to play in the Olympics,what about all those ranked below him,not to mention the few way out for whom exceptions were made?

    Anyway, I really don't wish to flog a dead horse; let bygones be bygones and move on.

    Olympics is all about participation from the whole world and not an individual sporting event. Is it fair? Of course not. World solidarity through sports takes precedence over any individual country. In other words, the rules was created to maximise the participant from various countries and not let a single country monopolise the event.

    Circumventing this through dubious unsportsmanship actions deprives the chances of participants from other countries. Whether it is fair to CJ or not is irrelevant because it is the nature of Olympics. End of story.

    If you've read my other posts previously on the Olympics spirit, I've said similarly as much about participation, the universality of the games, the world as one family, Coubertin's motto, etc,etc, which I fully subscribed to; so do China, I believed, which has never complained about it but simply abided by it to the best they could to qualify their athletes within the rules permitted; so do the IOC which tries to strike a balance between having the best athletes competing, sportsmanship and the Olympic spirit, all in good measure. For example, in the past, Olympic Games was purely for amateurs, later on professionals were allowed with limitations for certain sports. What I mean to say is, the rules are artificial and do change over time and circumstances. Theory is one thing, reality another.... Let's be honest and true to ourselves.

    Never mind, enough said for me.

    And for WS, Li Xuerui has the record of 36 consecutive wins in 2012!

    Oh? I am surprised. I've always assumed Lee CW held the MS record for the longest run of consecutive match wins.

    Thanks,Fortune, for pointing it out to me, assuming you're right.

    well, I'm not.
    typically there are 5 rounds to win a tournament. I think LCW's best run is 3 that equated to 15 consecutive wins.

    Hmm...you have a point there. Let's say he wins five tournaments in a row, that makes 25 consecutive match victories, and considering he's stopped by Lin Dan in 3 out of 4 meetings on average a year, that's just about right.

    Is Li Xuerui the recordholder in WS for the longest run of consecutive match wins? Btw, I thought it was 35 and not 36 consecutive match wins for LXR, I recall hearing the commentator GC saying that.

    may be she forgotten the one that she was commentating on? ;)

    I would have guess that the 36 (or 35) wins must be a record, equivalent to 7 consecutive titles!!
