    I'm not sure about China. I saw them bought the stuffs with their money. But for Malaysia team, Phiten does sponsor the equipments.

    If I were you, I would consider about wearing it. Why you ask, because under accomplish players wears them.

    Chen Jin wore it and he lost to PSH in Badminton Asia Championship.

    BCL is Mr. Runner Up. The last tournament that he won was Korea SS back in 2007 (where all the big name stayed home).

    Lu Lan lost to Tina Rasmussen at the All England

    Wang Lin lost to Jiang Yanjiao at Badminton Asia Championship.

    Zhu Lin haven't won any tournament since the World Championship in 2007.

    I'm just kidding about about the under accomplish thing. Wearing the necklace is just a matter of personal taste in style and fashion so it's up to the individual. I thought that it's funny how those share some common similarities in their badminton careers while wearing the necklace.

    yes, I just wear it for personal taste, I found the necklace quite special because I saw many players are wearing it. I was just curious whether it is a popular necklace recently since many players are wearing. I would like to get one also :D Better than wearing gold necklace as it is not easily subject to robbery:D

    No it doesn't. It's "medical marketing," design to woo the superstitious. By all means, get it if you think it looks nice, but don't depend on curing anything.
