    It is not a matter of them retiring early. They can still play on like LL, JYJ and ZL. But CHN has a big pool of WS players to choose from and WS is ultra competitive in CHN, that is why 3 consecutive WS world champion cannot defend their crown. To represent CHN team in Sudirman (1 spot open), OLY (3 spots open), WC (4 spots open), UC (3 spots open) and CHN has probably 6-8 WS players that are equally good and some will be left on the side lines. And scary thing is more coming up and a lot more we don't even know about. In CHN, it is like you are as good as the last championship you won. The next time you lose, you are done. And that is only badminton, try table tennis WS, the competition in CHN is insane.

    In 15 years time, RI and TTY are like old model cars, worn out and lonely facing the CHN wall, while CHN has replenished her car models...err...I mean come up with a new CHN wall, younger, faster, fresh and lots of mileage in their young legs

    Looks like when the payout for winning is small, it is compensated by having humongous trophies to balance out.

    the loudest cheering was from AlanK, KevinY and me. we sat in the JPN team and yelled as loud as we can. even Kanako Yonekura turned around and took a picture of us. the atmosphere was incredible!!!

    oh. and an amazing point at around 13-14. i think Ha hits net shot, the birdie net corded and rolled over. Satoko dove in and the shuttle flew up veritcally up 4-5 meters and then went to the other side of the net. at that moment, Ha thought she won the rally and turned around to celebrate, everyone, including the umpire did not see the shuttle went over the other side of the net. luckily the service judge did and told the umpire.

    never give up.
    our picture made it into her blog!!

    i have confirmed with the Victor USA team that the Korean team do give them their rackets to be strung. some have given them to the US Open official stringer (AK/KY/Panda) but most of them goes to Victor USA. they setup their own machine in the hotel to do the stringing as understandably there are no space for them to setup anything in the arena.

    I guess if you hardly ever go to Victor sponsored tournaments you pay quite a lot on stringing fees every time so why not have the local distro do it
