    Taufik Hidayat in his recent interview with Chinese station, CCTV, in London said after this Olympics he will still be playing in a number of tournaments before retiring. He also mentioned that he feels thankful to all the blessings he earns from his achievements in badminton, recognizing there are many ups and downs during his long career, his peak in the 2004 Olympics as the gold medalist and the less mileage trips in other Olympics incl. the current London 2012.

    He also mentioned the invitation from CBA for him to play in CBA League competition, thanked for the opportunity and he seemed to give a positive response to such invitation.

    dear george, appreciate the link but next time please put a warning that one is about to see a nearly gruesome injury (i had to close my eyes and cringe seeing the replays)..*suetyan should be able to watch this..
    Sayaka's injury is eerily similar to Wang Lin's injury (WL wasn't able to walk it off while Sayaka tried to)..

    LCW : OK...that's a deal...And if i don't win?
    LD : Hmm, if you don't win, then i'll give that watch to you as well...You know i'm a nice guy..sounds good?;)

    The camerawork at the OG has been outstanding! They're using some pretty impressive tech too, for the slow-mo's!

    Oops, sorry for that.. Yup, that injury is really scary and cruel at the same time to Sayaka.(injuries video is always very sad to see, eg: wang lin, wong choong hann, and lee chong wei's case) Wish Sayaka recovers well..
