    Does anyone have his profile, story, background? He ever beaten some big names like Rajiv Ouseph, Eric Pang, Viktor Axelsen. He won the 2010 Atwater Canadian International Challenge by defeating Brice Leverdez in the final.

    He is a bit of a dark horse. Despite seeing his name in lots of tournaments over the years, the profiles on Wikipedia and BWF page aren't full of detail. I also would be pleased to learn more about this fellow from some bright BC'er.:)

    (Note : the google search revealed a couple "interesting" looking gentleman with the same name featured on Facebook. )

    Hmm, if I am not mistaken he participated in the 2008 Olympics and lost to Lee Chong Wei in R16.

    If I remember correctly he was one of those IBF training centre players in Saarbrucken. Also playing in the german league ...
    I believe his girlfriend was/is that girl from Peru that Panda was drooling over during the Olympics :D
