    They have the same moustache because they are blood brothers... furthermore its a trend that time in their family ... except the women. hehehe.. I don't think we will have any family badminton players as successful as them in the near future. The nearest is Hashim Brothers. But they are only 2.

    Surely, this family is a "legendary" family in this sports.

    Can't think too many cases ever in sports, maybe Sutter (not sure about the spell) brothers in Hockey?

    Yup , you imagine that they have a badminton court in their backyard when they are little kids. Its like the states...Bballers like MJ had basketball backboard and rim in his backyard when he was a kid. Nothing else but badminton for Sideks.

    Yes indeed, interesting pics of the Sidek brothers of younger days.

    I recall seeing and chatting with Rashid during the Commonwealth Games '94 held in Victoria, BC. I still have the pictures I took of him and others in the locker room. That year, he captured the Mens Singles Gold medal very easily and no one was even close as the games were restricted to only athletes belonging to the British Commonwealth countires. Ah yes, the memories... :)
