    I noticed that she is assistant coach to the Australian team.

    What other potential talents lie unknown in Australia? There must be many ex-Inodnesians/China players there.

    Sze Ning On is the coach of a Brisbane club.
    Sze Yu is an actor in Taiwan!

    That's interesting. I saw a couple of Taiwan movies recently

    and I could have sworn that the actor was Sze Yu or Yam Tak

    Wah 30 years ago.

    Yes, Zhang and Chen are both in Australia..... Infact, they are living in my city of Perth. Zhang is the head coach for state junior team.

    I saw her son Tiger Chen play 4 weeks ago... he's 16. He is very good in his age group, but believe it or not, he is not the best there is.

    Yes, yang yang's wife, Zheng Yu Li, is also here. I played against her once in a doubles match. I was only 14 at the time. I was partnering a 40+ man and she was partnering a 40+ woman. Not surprisingly, they won. hahaha

    Wasn't Paul Kong one of the top Australian badders in the late 80's? Along with Sze Yu?

    Xu (Zhu?) Rong is definately here, she was coach of my uni team before Han Ai Ping (before my time). Apparently she was a much harder coach than Han Ai Ping.

    The others, I'm not so sure of, but yeah, we have a lot of ex Chinese, Indonesian and Malaysian players here.

    Actually, the inventor of Jello-O was Peter Cook... but that was in the mid 1800's so maybe he hadn't taken up badminton yet.
     
  17. So where's Yang Yang now? Is he also in Australia now?
