Would it be fair to state that Li Gen is a synonym to unsportsmanship ?!

    I was watching some random badminton games and I came across a XD game featuring Li Gen and man does that kid have an attitude... On top of that he's not even that solid...

    Just my 2 cents.

    What was the final result? He didnt look too interested in the game. He has quite good skill though.

    The Canadians win in straight games, 21-13; 21-17 if I'm not mistaken. Li Gen has a real attitude, not sure whether it stems from thinking that he is unworthy so he has to put on that 'aura'. He and his fancy shots...
    Looks, however he isn't that bad I think.

    His ego is like his dad's but his skill is not even close...put your money where your mouth is. But his attitude isn't that odd, all young players have it especially when your dad is one of the best players of all time...

    I wouldnt describe LYB as one of the best players of all time.

    Not all young players are like that, whilst some are on the move up to senior level most are hungry and hard working.

    I could partially accept this attitude had he won the game, or was just playing with it being a first end. But since he lost pretty easy you cant really accept this. He is sure only in the team because of his dad that is for sure :)

    From watching the video, this guy really has attitude problem. Li Yongbo's skill can no way compared to Park Joo-bong. He was able to beat Park from time to tim mainly because of his fighting spirit and never gave up. Too bad his son has only has average kill and poor attitude.
