    No that wasn't a joke. Gill Clark said this while commentating on him at the All England this year and she doesn't just make up rumours.

    When I met CY / FHF the 2 told me that they WILL retire after the 2012 OG... Thats for sure...

    And JJS... he will retire.. 100% sure...

    Of course you're right. She doesn't.
    Possible. I haven't heard one way or the other. It does surprise me, however. Like Park Sung Hwan, Han Sang Hoon, Choi Ho Jin, and Hong Ji Hoon - indeed like every Korean man who hasn't won an Olympic medal or otherwise become a sports star overseas - Jung was forced to do two years in the army and his obligation has now ended, apart from the odd reserve training day. It wasn't like he chose it as a career. Most badminton players play for their pro teams for a few years after leaving the national team and most coach. But as I say, I haven't noticed it coming up in any interviews so anything is possible.

    Out of interest what is the age players have to win a medal or have achieved some level of success before they have to do their duty?

    What a good pair... FHF think that CY is irreplaceable ... WOW..which is absolutely true, in CBA nest as well as in this world.

    Isn't that what Malaysia's LCW is doing? Lindan is catching up in the world ranking in a light speed.

    The 2012 OG mens double will be interesting... Last game for FHF/CY vs JJS/LYD(if both team got into finals :D). I really can't think of any1 better can replace JJS... JJS's smashes is just superb with LYD's fantastic net play combination.

    28, I think. Jung was 26 when he went in early 2009. At the time, he said he didn't have to go so soon but that was his choice. Likely to get it done before the Olympic qualifying period and it likely would have been pushing it to try to sneak in a gold in Guangzhou first.

    Is it such a shame that JJS is retiring after the Olympic , he has one of the best disguise in his forearm overhand , with combination of power , angle and placement . He will be missed in the badminton circuit.

    As another member already said Cai Y is irreplaceable , if he retires after the OG2012 , I dont think Fu would continue as he might want to spend more time with his family. This all depends on their results n the OG , If they manage a gold , then it would be possible they will quit within the 3 months after ( contract within their sponsors ) , since they have won everything there to be won in MD

    Cai-Fu wont retire before 2013 is over. They both have a title to defend in Guangzhou and record to match

    You'd best get your tickets for the Indonesia Open or the Thomas Cup finals, then. They might play in Singapore but, unlike Indonesia, they won't be forced to play it so they might not. You can always visit Korea after he retires. They are on the same domestic team and Jung is likely to keep playing for a few years yet but sometimes he plays with Kim Sa Rang, Cho Gun Woo, or Han Sang Hoon instead, in domestic tournaments.

    Looks like injury problem is a really serious concern for him ahead of the OG2012. Wish he could recover fast and take the gold medal in the london OG 2012:).. I missed his jumping smash though.
