    I would really doubt it. She's past the motivation, there's a new generation behind her, there's no money in it in Australia...LYB has nothing to worry about her. She needs to enjoy her life.

    Oceania can send one representative to the Olympics...Since she is eligible as an Aussie, can she actually partner a random player to compete..it's good to see her play again though in Wembley...the last quote kinda freaks me out a little bit and same for the Chinese team overall..

    "After a long absence from the sport Huang returned from the court in 2012, this time as an Australian"

    nobody knows. She is very secretive. Her best partner Gao Ling doesn't even know, some of his best friends in the national team like ZJ doesn't even know.

    'Missing' athlete still on payroll

    Ex-badminton champ turns up in Sydney after years of absence

    A top sports center in Central China has continued to pay the salary of badminton star-
    turned-coach Huang Sui despite the fact she has not shown up for work since early 2009.

    Huang, 31, was appointed deputy director of Hunan Provincial Badminton Center in 2008, a year after she dropped out of the national team and retired from the game.
    However, her boss and former coach Tang Hui said she went missing soon after, only to reappear this month at a tournament in Sydney, representing Australia.
    "Because she was an accomplished player, we have treated the matter with great prudence," Tang said.

    Huang was put in charge of youth training, yet she was often on leave. Her boss said the last time she was seen at the center was at her annual performance assessment three years ago.

    The center posted a notice in the local Xiaoxiang Morning Post last month looking for information about her whereabouts. When they received no response, she was officially dismissed, although the center still pays her, according to Tang.
    He said her salary for April was deposited on Sunday, although he declined to reveal the amount.

    The player's sudden reappearance at an international tournament, along with her new nationality, has left many people perplexed, including her former mentor, Tang.
    On Wednesday, Huang partnered Tang Hetian at a women's doubles match at the Sydney Badminton Open. The duo represented Australia, but lost to world No 9 pair Chien Yu-chin and Cheng Wen-hsing from Chinese Taipei.

    After the match, Huang told badminton website Badzine that she did not know what her future career plans are.

    Speaking in Chinese, she said she was still getting used to a left-handed partner and responded warmly when the Badzine interviewer said that a lot of people were happy to see her back on the court.

    Tang Hui said he knew nothing about Huang moving to Sydney with her husband, 42-year-
    old Wang Xiaojun, a real estate developer from Zhuzhou, Hunan. The couple has a 4-year-old son.

    "Huang had no financial problems, so she is unlikely to have gone abroad for money," he said, before going on to describe his old student as competitive, very demanding of herself, and a strong personality.

    "If she prefers a different lifestyle and has made personal choices, we would be open to hear her explanation," he added.

    As the player's ties with the center are still unresolved, however, it remains a mystery how she was able to represent Australia at the Sydney event, which ran from April 3 to 8.
    According to the Badminton World Federation's rules, a foreign national can only represent a country if he or she holds a passport for that country for three years or has represented that country within the past three years.

    Calls to the Chinese Badminton Association in Beijing and e-mails to the Badminton World Federation in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, went unanswered on Sunday.

    Huang, who is from Anhua county in Hunan, joined the Chinese national team at the age of 16 and went on to win numerous tournaments, including the Japan Open, the world championships and six All-England titles.

    In 2007, with the Beijing Olympics approaching, she announced that she planned to retire, as her father was in critical condition due to lung cancer.

    Huang's coaches attempted to persuade her to stay on and win an Olympic medal, but she opted to withdraw from the team a few months later. Her father died in December 2007.

    Maybe her club just values her past contributions out of gratitude and the pay is something like a "retirement benefit"?

    [h=2]Badminton champ had OK to play for Australia[/h]
    The Chinese Badminton Association had been notified and gave its approval for ex-badminton champion Huang Sui to represent Australia at a recent competition.

    Li Yongbo, head coach of China's national badminton team, said the Australian Badminton Association had contacted its Chinese counterpart prior to the tournament in Sydney last week.
    "I'm not at all surprised to hear Huang Sui has represented Australia," Li said.
    According to the Badminton World Federation, a player who stays in a country for more than four months can represent that country in tournaments. However, they cannot take part in intercontinental competition, including World Championships and the Olympics.


    "Huang Sui has stopped training for years. Now she is back in the game, perhaps more as a hobby," Li said, adding that she could help promote badminton in Australia.
    Huang and Tang Hetian represented Australia at a women's doubles match on April 4 and lost to world No 9 pair Chien Yu-chin and Cheng Wen-hsing from Chinese Taipei.
    Before Huang, other top Chinese badminton players have played for other countries and even competed against the Chinese team.
    The federation's media officer, Jan Lin, said no inquiries have been received so far from the Chinese side about Huang representing Australia in Sydney.
    Yet Huang's former employer, the sports center in her native Hunan province, reportedly knew nothing about these developments and has kept paying her salary as a deputy director in charge of youth training since 2008, although she seldom showed up in the first two years and later lost contact with the center.
    Hunan provincial sports bureau responded on Monday that it has dismissed Huang from the deputy director post, but still included Huang on the center's payroll as an athlete, reported China News Service.
    Yi Jiandong, a professor at the Beijing Sports University, said he understands Huang's decision to go abroad for better career prospects and to fulfill personal values, which "she should not be blamed for and need not explain and justify".

    Just an extract;

    Zhu Lin talks about her life after badminton as she had resigned from her province team and 2 months into her new job. She is now working for a government outfit in Shanghai promoting badminton to the younger generation.

    She said that she regret her decision to leave the national team in early 2010, at 25 she might has the chance to succeed Zhang Ning and Xie Xingfang after they left. Because of her injuries and physical condition at the time that left her with little options but resign.

    She also stressed that her current job is transition and the future is full of options but certainly linked with badminton.
