    If you really want a challenge and know anything about Gwangdong, try naming all of these players. (Yes, Hwang Hye Youn is front and centre so this is still on topic.)

    The "Guess Who" challenge is on..

    ..hmm, does she resemble a bit like you, yannie??..;)(as yannie often reads other people mention her resemblance to others)..;)
    ..this should be a good practice for us in getting familiar w/ some of the KOR players/coaches; i'll just transfer the pic here, if event doesn't mind, for an easier viewing...blueagle is not bad in guessing some players name...let's see if yannie can crack and correctly guess who they are...;) :cool:

    This girl is promising. She will be the main challenger of the china wall in years to come. My opinion is that she is a more rounded player than the current young batch of chinese players.

    yes.
    Perhaps a little context. This is the Samsung Electromechanics Professional team. At the time, there were half a dozen national team members playing for the team and the company sponsors a similar pro team in Guangdong, China. That's why only half the players in the photo are Korean. According to the records, there are/were some former stars on the Guangdong team, but I don't recognize any from the photo.

    Hwang Hye Youn is the top women's singles player for Samsung. Seo Yoon Hee has been in decline since she left the national team.

    Hwang was tops in the country, too, winning two national championsips in Jun Jae Youn's absence (or recovery). Now Jun is back in the world's top 10 and Hwang has fallen out of the top 20 in recent months but will be back in the top 30 on Thursday.

    hope this explains it all!:p;)
    [​IMG]Hwang Hye Youn of Korea was crowned winner of the Banuinvest International Series tournament, in Timisoara, Romania, this Sunday. This win might not see her move too far from her ranking of 30th, but it’s a start in her quest to get in the top 16 to qualify for Beijing.

    Raphael Sachetat. Photo: Badmintonphoto (archives)

    Hwang Hye Youn has a little over a month to get into the top 16, as her compatriot is most likely to stay there and qualify for the Olympics. No other option, then, for the All England semi-finalist, who competed in the Banu Invest Romania Internationals this weekend. And, as expected, she won the tournament quite easily, clinching the 2500 points along with the gold. It was the first ever international tournament win for the two-time Korean champion.


    Yet, the road is still quite long for the Korean, who needs nearly 11,000 points to get into the top 16. Her win in Romania actually only gives her another 500 points to add to her 10 best results, so she will definitely have to fare well in the upcoming events, the India Open and the Asian Championships, which will be crucial to her as to others.

    Ville Lang from Finland will see this win as a blessing as well, as he is likely to take a seat among the first reserves on the Dummy Olympic list, right behind the last qualifying spot held now by Swede Sahlberg.

    The Finn was lucky to get past the first round when he won 22-20 in the deciding game against 3rd seed Koukal from Czech Republic. Two days later, he was wearing gold after a convincing win over Raul Must of Estonia 21-17, 21-18. The other winners are Metodiev/Yankov from Bulgaria in men’s doubles, Golovanaova/Propopenko from Russia in ladies’ doubles and Makarski/Dimova in the mixed.

    Canada’s Reid and McKee, meanwhile, might have missed a chance to get important ground on their main rivals, Lee and Mangalakiri of USA for the only ladies' doubles spot reserved for the Americas. The Canadians were beaten in the semi-final, while the US citizens lost to the same pair, but one stage further, getting more points for the same effort.
