    I watched the match between Park Sung Hwan and LD in the MS Final Sudirman 2009 and thought LD looks like a kid when playing against PSH. PSH is so tall and the commentator said he is almost 6'2".

    I was wondering if BCL is taller and if there are even taller professional players competing.

    I've seen this Thai mixed doubles player who is amazingly tall, but I forgot his name and the competition I saw it in. But I think PSH could be the tallest badminton player I've seen. Next to him, isn't Soni DK pretty tall?

    Anyone heard of the NZ MS player Craig something? Apparently he joined the 2008 Beijing Olympics in Badminton MS and is 1.95m (6' 4" or 5" ??)

    Craig Cooper is the guy you're looking for. I think he is 6'4", plays both doubles and mixed for New Zealand
