    Default You have to consider the population of each country to make it fair.

    It's not fair to have one player for each country due to the big difference of population for different countries.

    Forget about professionalism. We are human. Human tend to abuse others with the power they have. Just look at those politicians. The are human. lol. Use a brain against them. Follow the rules, if not, pls butt out.

    You're contradicting yourself. Having one player from every country is not giving everyone a chance.

    Everyone should be given a fair chance to be qualified regardless of nationality.

    This is a different thing. I was talking about the rule concerning nationality. Match-fixing for sure should be discouraged.

    Rules are always favourable to the majority, countries in this case, or to a powerful pole behind the scene. China doesn't fall into either group.

    For a competitive sport at its highest, one competes not given. If the player is weak, go home and train harder. Blaming the others being too good is a coward's word. One can argue China is playing dirty with match-fixing. On the other hand, I would also argue barring a top player from participating because of nationality is equally bad and as discriminatory as your comment is.

    China not competitive in influential sports: LinDan

    LONDON - The reason why China lacks Laureus award-winning athletes is that Chinese are notcompetitive enough in some influential categories, said famous Chinese badminton player LinDan on Sunday.

    "China is one of the countries with most world champions, but it is a pity that the categories inwhich Chinese are competitive are not globally influential," Lin said during an interview withXinhua.
    Since 2000 Chinese have won three Laureus Awards, including Yao Ming and Liu Xiang asBest Newcomers of the Year, and Chinese Olympic team as the Best Team of the Year.
    However, none of the Chinese have been awarded as the best sportsman or sportswoman inthe "Oscar in sports". Most of such classic awards were given to players in golf, tennis as wellas track and field.
    "China is good in diving, table tennis and badminton, and for so many times our national flagwas hoisted across the world. But globally these sports are not popular enough," he said.
    This year Li Na, the first Asian player ever to win a singles Grand Slam title, was nominated forLaureus World Breakthrough of the Year. Along with her was hurdles star Liu Xiang, China'sfirst male Olympic gold medalist in track and field.
    Talking about his compatriots, Lin Dan said it was "really not easy for Liu Xiang to gain thenomination".
    "Since 2004 he had gone through so many twists and turns but persisted nevertheless," said LiDan, arguably the greatest shuttler of all time.
    He believed that Li Na set up a good example for other Chinese players. "Few Chinese peopleare good at tennis, but Li succeeded. She proved that in many unfamiliar fields Chinese canwin so long as they try."
    "I want to promote badminton to make it one of the most influential sports in the world," Lin said,adding that it was exactly the reason why he came to the Laureus award ceremony in London.
    "After my retirement, if one day when I switch on the television, I can see a badminton player,not necessarily a Chinese, win the Laureus award, I will be very happy," he said.
    Talking about the upcoming London Olympics, Lin is not sure whether he will come.
    "I am working hard for the preparation and I hope that the coaches could, when drafting thefinal list for Olympic participants, write down my name without hesitation," he said.
    Lin carved out his professional career in 2001. He admitted that the London Games might behis last Olympics. "If I can still be standing in the Olympic arena, I would be satisfied because itmeans for nearly 12 years, I am still in good shape," he said.
    When asked about his arch-rival in the forthcoming competition, Lin said: "I will fight each andevery competitor with might and main, whether he is Lee Chong-wei or Taufik Hidayat, or someone else."

    Thumbs up It's not the skill of a sportsperson that we vote for, but the competitiveness

    .
    Lin Dan should realise that winners of the Laureus World Sports Awards are awarded annually to sportspeople who have not only performed well, but to those who could attract huge number of fans following them in the sporting arena.

    Fans of sportspeople might like their idols to win, but the fans could read into their idols' minds how hard their idols wanted to win. Actually, I think it's more of the latter than the former, that many sportspeople have become popular.

    It is the competitive nature of sportspeople that shines, that make observers wanting to vote for them. It is not about how influential the sport is that help sportspeople winning the Laureus World Sports Awards.

    From Australia, I can relate to our own sportspeople who have won the Laureus World Sports Awards, like in Cricket (Mens Team), Surfing (Layne Beachley and Stephanie Gilmore), Yachting (Peter Blake), Alpine Skiing (Michael Milton), Athletics (Cathy Freeman), Wheelchair Athletics (Louise Sauvage), Paraplegic Sailing (Vinny Lauwers), etc... Not only they were good in their sports, but they managed to get fans to cheer for them because they made known to us how much effort they have put into their sports (that we have to cheer for them).

    It's not their skill that we admire, but their competitiveness.

    And it is never about how influential the sport is.

    That was a very humble opinion by LD, & i hope he means it.

    Do you guys believe Lin Dan reached his peak a few years ago OR... that he is still at the top of his game now, and that LCW has ascended, evolved and become a player of equal brilliance and capabilities???
