    This is a vid of 18 yr old Lin Dan vs the heralded Indonesian Hendrawan who is now in one of BAM's stable of coaches.

    This vid depicting that LD even back then, had the fiery power and the mental toughness to come and conquer his opponents even though trailing far behind. This takes guts and mental determination that few will be able to comprehend how he toughens his mind. Although LD lost by 1 point deficit in the end, he is a fiery fighter foretold, in days to come.

    Thanks for sharing...


    I like this as it really looks like a "wedding" between 2 loved ones, rather than a public "event" or a "show"...

    you're welcome, Jonc108. :)

    hmm, am i right to assume that you were refer to LCW & WMC's wedding by your words above? if so, i think it's really understandable. afterall, LCW is a national hero in Malaysia, and he is even a royal. it's proper to get his wedding get more attention.

    as for LD, apart from his badminton life, i think he is still just an ordinary man in China. :)

    you're welcome too, justin. :)

    btw, am i get it right that XXF saying LD even washing the dishes for her, just don't want to let XXF's pair hands suffer from water? that he wants XXF to be always stayed pretty like she is now? he's pretty romantic husband then. :D

    and another question, the wedding venue, is it Bird's Nest Stadium or the venue where badminton was held during OG Beijing 2008? get a bit confused with the MC's word. :p

    Yes,you're right. The first time XXF invited Lin Dan over for dinner in response to his dinner date,he offered to wash the dishes as he didn't want her pretty hands to suffer and always stay beautiful.

    I heard the compere said the wedding was held at the same venue as the Beijing Olympics 2008 where badminton and artistic gymnastics (Li Yongbo's wife was an artistic gymnast) were contested;if I'm not wrong it's the Beijing Sports Gymnasium. I read that it was Li Yongbo who helped Lin Dan to get permission to hold the wedding there as it is meant for official or sports use only,not private function.

    At first I thought it was a car show. But the caption says it is a "Dream Close Encounter with Super Dan" for his crazy fans where he performed Oppa Gangnam style.

    Lin Dan said 'I know this song-dance is hot !' A confident Super Dan told his fans 'This is an attitude of life! Be the best you can be, be your own champion ! I will persevere until 2016 Brazil Olympics ! This is my honour !'

    So I guess we can all stop wondering whether Lin Dan will retire or not. If we take his word for it,at the meet-the-fans-session the other day,he has said it is his honour to play until Rio Olympics 2016.

    I suppose,with no more peaks to conquer, he can only surpass himself and rewrite his own history - winning a third Olympic gold is one way of doing so.

    When LD has won the Olympics more than once, the 2016 is more of a feat than an achievement hence no longer as ecstatic. However for LCW, the urge is still strong as he has not won it before.
