    Default Great Idea!!!

    Guys, please read this article till the very end at http://www.judithmeulendijks.nl (Column van den Brink) and plz comment! Personally I think this is an excellent way to make badminton more popular and to end the "backyard" image of the sport...!

    thats pretty cool

    I just hope the badminton will be very fast and agressive so that everyone will see badminton as the true fast sport it is

    if not then people might be just continuing to think of badminton as a boring backyard sport

    oh well, even if it is weak bond will be playing it


    good day!

    What sports have we seen James Bond participate in in the Bond films, and have they become popular?

    I can't think of many,
    Fencing
    Judo ?

    any Bondophiles out there know any more?

    It depends of what you call sport, I can suggest one thing he does in all of his films but that would rule out junior teams

    I left out the game bird shooting he did in Goldfinger on purpose.
    I hadn't considered what you're thinking of as sport. Are there many tournaments?
    You'd get more spectators for WD than badminton does.

    it would be excellent if somehow Bond could achieve an impressive level of badminton and then play in a movie... :-)
    though fencing didn't become extra popular because of that movie, badminton would be different, because with fencing we weren't surprised to see it so fierce, but with badminton people surely would be.

    I'm not going to claim that JB is responsible for the popularity of the following, but he has been involved in a lot of activities that are often considered sports;

    Skydiving
    Skiing
    Sledging (on a cello case)
    Snow Boarding
    Scuba Diving (I believe in fact that JB did popularise this one)
    Fishing (Well, he rented a boat anyway..)
    Flying
    Bungee Jumping
    Fencing
    Shooting
    Hunting
    Rock Climbing
    Motor Racing
    Ice Skatingt

    fencing has that coolness factor to it. like the musketeers.

    i wonder how they'd do that for badminton though? certainly there are a few jump smashing (probably done with doubles instead of PB doing it, it will take him around 5years to get to any good looking form, i say hire Gade), a few leaping retrieves, etc.

    look at the list of sports in the movie, much of which are 'transportation' sports, ie. it brings him from point A to point B. hard to blend the badminton one-on-a-side type of sports into the movie plot.

    here is an idea, how about Bond goes to Brunei and plays a game with the Sultan in his private gym with solid gold scoreboard...

    kwun,

    How do you know about Brunei Sultan? Since he has divorced his second wife (she loves badminton), there are vacant gym available in the palace for bond and the winner get solid gold Carbonex 20.
