    Now i hope assuming he could win the Gold in London, I hope IOC should consider giving wildcard entry to all winners so we could see another Lin Dan in action for Rio 2016.
    Wildcards generally applies to BWF sanctioned tournaments. IOC deems it mandatory to meet the qualifying round of any athlete regardless of past achievements. Ian Thorpe could have been given one but instead he had to qualify and he miss out (if his olympic swimming medals haul was considered, he should have been issued an automatic wildcard but not).

    I think it's safe to say if Lin Dan fails to win the OG... he will certainly carry on playing at least until the World Championship in Guangzhou. His character wont allow him to bow out in such a manner, surely he wants to retire with his head held high at the top of the podium.

    I will share with you guys some points that i could understand.

    In this interview, LD is hoping that his parents accompany & cheer for him during London 2012 OG. He said that it will always be wonderful & comfortable to have your parents present to spirit you up, regardless of how the result turn out to be. Surprisingly, LD parents only watch LD matches twice throughout his whole career so far..

    Some parents do get too nervous and/or get too stressed out when watching their children playing at competition/matches.

    you probably can guess one of them, its quite easy.
    wondering what's the other, may be one really early on when LD was a youngster

    It depends on the reason why they dont watch..if it was because of nerves etc.. Surely they wouldnt choose the one I think you are thinking

    I take it the piece doesnt say which they are?

    no, it didn't.
    but he said that his parents were there cheering him along.
    the Olympics must be one of them.

    I think the nervous ones are you and your wifey. Kids are a lot more resilient than you credit them. You said you never seen your son compete, honestly any regrets? My daugther swan competitive swimming for 10 years, won some, lost some. Her relay team broke the provincial medley record but got disqualified because one member did an illegal stroke in backstroke, she cried and we were there for her. She won the Provincial breaststroke gold and we were there too. Not only we never miss one event but we captured them all on DVD and hopefully, I live to see the day when I can play back these videos to her kids, that would be a mastercard moment...priceless.

    A Wonderful and Honorable Journey by Lin Dan...

    A badminton player has never been given the opportunity to attend such a prestigious event. Lin Dan of all people was invited to join the group of famous and successful athletes in the Laureus award ceremony.

    Lin Dan then shared his thoughts of how the Chinese have not been recognised for their dominance and success in their respective sports due to many reasons. At the end of the journey, he hopes one day he will live the day to see a badminton player (not necessarily a Chinese) to grab that award, making badminton a much more recognised sports as it has always deserved.

    Chances are rather slim for a Laureus Award; nomination? Yes.

    no, he won't ever get the award. LYB's job makes for LD's withdrawals --> no sportivity --> no Laureus award! damn it, LYB!

    but TH and LCW maybe stand a chance..
