    what happened to this thai player? did he retire as well after the olympics? i assume his partner retired, but he is only 27..still a few years left for a doubles player?

    dunno,

    Pramote Teerawirawatana (if I remember his name correctly) is now part of the national coaching staff I think. He was 36 I think when he played in the 2003 World Championships.

    I found one photo on him with his partner back in 2001. He was not that "big" at that time...

    Pramote Teerawiwatana and Tesana Panvisvas of Thailand in action on the second day of the 2001 Asia Cup Badminton Championship at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, Singapore.

    Some recent pics..

    ..these were taken during last yr's Thai Open....Btw, Tesana is not a Panda (as that's already reserved for our own NGP). Rather, a teddybear is probably more apt.. :cool:

    I am not amused by your comments at all and I am not asking for credit.

    I like to share my pics with you guys and do not see the need to copyright my photos (yes I know they are not good photos compared to the pros here).

    All I ask is that you state the source or link where you found the photos.

    Apparently..

    ..Tesana's last Doubles appearance, in international play, before last yr, was in 2005. During that yr he played XD in 2 tourneys. And the last time he played Men's Doubles was in 2004, at the 2004 Athens Olympics...2 yrs of not competing in international play, really shows.. :p

    Here are a couple more pics of him. One taken during this yr's TC Qualification tourney (yes, with Sudket), whilst the other during this yr's S'pore Open (non-baddy pic)..

    he has certainly lost a lot of hair, and found a lot of weight.
    all that said though, i wish i could play like him!
