    Default Post 2012 London OG Review

    We saw the domination of China Players (which are supported by Li Ning) clean sweep all gold medals from 2012 London OG. I believe this kind of domination would last for (at least) 2-3 years ahead.

    Further, just recently note that Yonex did not put any news concerning 2012 London OG nor performance / achievements of its supported athletes thereunder. YY concentrates in promoting the Drive with Nanoray Campaign by elaborating the opinions of JPN players (see www.yonex.com).


    What do you think would happen to badminton?
    (Especially after players like LCW / PG / TH / JJS opt for retirement)

    How and Who could prevent China and Li Ning from dominating our beloved games?

    Please share your personal opinion (and hopefully in positive manners/wording)

    other nations should rise up and try to overtake China and Li-Ning.

    just like back in the late 80s, China and other countries rises up and tried to overtake Indonesia, and also Victor / Li-Ning rises up to over take Yonex in the late 00's.

    Badminton related...my take:

    Controversial, semi-unprecendented, epic & future in doubt

    Controversial : we all know the stories & the infamy
    Semi-unprecedenteed : LD not the 1st player to win back-to-back Gold (yes, for MS)
    Epic : CHN becoming 1st country to sweep all titles, LXR is the youngest ever WS Gold medalist
    Future in doubt : what will abound in Rio 2016? no more LD & LCW to look fw to? who will take over the reigns as the 2 top MS players by then? will any other country(ies) challenge CHN?....so much questions..
