    Default Politics invade into sports and other sectors

    While it is good that PJB can help raise the standard of badminton in Japan and he has settled in there quite comfortably with the culture and the language I presume, the political "quarrels" over the historical baggage between South Korea and Japan will not be good for PJB nor the players of both countries when they meet in court (not legal).

    One could sense a tinge of tenseness when opposing players compete and the joy of competing is somewhat receded when you have leaders of both countries making public announcements that could hurt the feelings and sensitivities of their people. Rival players and coaches become uncomfortable.

    But let's hope there will be no walkouts when political tension rises another decibel. And let's hope that political leaders remain more circumspect in their action, including verbal outcries.

    PJB seems to be comfortable in Japan and vice versa. Japan's badminton has improved and PJB renewed his contract there

    That's good enough for the game.

    I always wondered why Park decided to coach the japanese team? Why didn't he coach the Korean team?

    Surely they would've gladly let Park takeover as head coach. Especially after the scandal involving Sung.

    Similarly, why did he coach England and Malaysia? I guess he wanted to see more of the world.

    If you haven't seen it yet, you have to seen this video. At age 48, Park Joo Bong plays a MD with Kim Dong moon against Lee Yongdae and Yoo yeungsung!

    Remarkably, the old guys are extraordinarily competitive against elite Md players!
