    All the walkovers and controversies aside, a great athlete well-deserving his place in the hall of fame.

    Somehow Lin Dan doesn't look complete when without his Badminton racket.

    It's pretty sad when your wax figure has more character than you do.

    i totally agree with this : "All the walkovers and controversies aside, a great athlete well-deserving his place in the hall of fame." one again from me : "the most complete title MS player in the world (compared with other MS player)"

    The Star
    Time to clean up badminton to avoid being manipulated

    COMMENT
    By RAJES PAUL




    THE dust has finally settled after some exciting badminton action in the back-to-back Super Series in Singapore and Indonesia, with the players now shifting their attention to the World Championships in London.
    But hang on a minute. Something is amiss – the credibility of Lin Dan and the Chinese team.
    In Singapore two weeks ago, three-time world champion Lin Dan was jeered by fans when he announced that he was conceding a walkover to compatriot Chen Jin in the final due to a stomach ailment.
    This led to speculation that Lin Dan had thrown the match, forcing critics to monitor him closely when he left to play in the Indonesian Open.
    In Jakarta, he lost to Sho Sasaki of Japan in the last 16, again provoking questions over his sincerity and honesty.
    Too much to stomach: China’s Lin Dan was subjected to boos and jeers after he withdrew from the Singapore Open final citing illness. — Reuters
    Was Lin Dan really sick? Or was there some manipulation going on in China’s camp behind his walkover and defeat?
    There was a lot at stake for world No. 9 and former world champion Chen Jin had he won – a good seeding in the world meet in August and, more importantly, a better chance to qualify as the third representative from China at the London Olympic Games next year.
    Let’s just hope that there is no truth to all the speculations and that Lin Dan was actually ill.
    But China have been guilty of pulling off a similar stunt once too often – especially ahead of major events like the Olympics.
    Remember the Asian Badminton Championships (ABC) in Johor Baru in 2008? Chen Jin had to win to become the third Chinese qualifier for the Beijing Olympic Games.
    And what did Lin Dan do? He threw the match against Chen Jin despite the boos from the fans.
    Remember the 2009 All-England? This time Chen Jin conceded a walkover to Lin Dan in the semi-final because of a back injury. And Lin Dan went on to beat Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei in the final.
    And who can forget the most controversial incident of them all when China’s former top women’s singles shuttler Zhou Mi was asked to let compatriot Zhang Ning win the 2004 Athens Olympic Games.
    A few years later, chief coach Li Yongbo admitted that “patriotism and loyalty to the country comes first and, sometimes, a player will be asked to give up his or her individual pursuit for the team’s glory”.
    There have been many more walkovers conceded by China’s shuttlers over the years, especially when pitted against their compatriots.
    But are we right to blame Lin Dan and the other players when they were only following team orders?
    Or should China take the rap if they had indeed manipulated the system?
    China, however, may not be the only country to have found a way to beat the system to suit their own plan.
    South Korea made a mockery of the game when they plotted their own downfall in the group stage of the Thomas Cup Finals in 2008 in Jakarta in order to avoid a stronger team in the next round.
    Then, there is Malaysia.
    The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) dropped independent shuttlers Gan Teik Chai-Tan Bin Shen – although the duo had qualified on merit – for the World Champion-ships and named another pair – of about similar standard – because the system allowed them to do so.
    The Badminton World Federation (BWF) have taken steps to tighten some rules to prevent countries and players from taking advantage of the system in a bid to ensure that badminton remains popular and maintains its status as an Olympic sport.
    But the recent spate of walkovers, no-show by players, farcical matches and the lack of avenue for players to raise their grouses indicate that the world body still have a lot more to do to clean up the game.
    If not, badminton may just bite the dust – and kiss goodbye to its future as an Olympic sport.

    Well I wonder if Lin Dan ever feel guilty for following this team order?Even though he may disagree with it, I think he also know that this kind of thing is also good for him.Why? If China is able to send 3 MS in the Olympic, he'll gains benefit from it.His teammates can fight all the way and try their best to fight LCW (main rival for Lin Dan) to make him tired.Lastly in the final, he gonna fight with the tired LCW and win it with a style. He can also learn from those battle and find ways to counter it in the final. In conclusion,the harder the route for LCW towards the final, the better for him. So, in order for him to have more 'partners' to fight in the Olympic, he needs to follow li yong bo orders now. This's wat we called a long-term benefit for him

    Even if some people say that Lin Dan can win without the help of his teammates, he know that he should take any precautionary measures so that LCW will not spoil his plan in next year Olympic. :X

    It's always crap to say that one player gains from his opponent being more tired by having a harder game before! They are professionals!!! Who won't fight hard in a OG? Maybe LD experienced hard games by facing PG, SS, PSW etc all the way before meeting LCW.Their is no guarantee in any sports competition that everyone could get equally hard opponents all the way. As a professional player, he should accept this norm and prepare for it.

    Don't worry LD won't win next year OG, LCW is a better player than LD on any given day

    LD = Long Done

    LCW = Lone Court Warrior
