    Whether it's the Columbus, or Columbo it's the popular version propped up by the establishment.

    Some much less covered views may indicate quite differently

    Lin Dan beat Chen Long in a training match last week. He said, even though he won, Chen Long didn't play well because of the wind. http://sports.sina.com.cn/o/2013-07-...46675794.shtml

    Lightbulb Fanyi.Youdao.com: Free Online Translator for CHN-ENG & Few Other Major Languages

    OOT >> btw if one needs the online translator for those Sina Sports links etc, (s)he may try http://fanyi.youdao.com/

    just copy n paste the targeted link into the large box at fanyi.youdao site then click the small BLUE button.

    Or simply APPEND the targeted link in full at the end of fanyi.youdao link asf:
    http://fanyi.youdao.com/WebpageTrans...web.index&url=

    in this instance, the complete link will look like this:
    http://fanyi.youdao.com/WebpageTrans...web.index&url=http://sports.sina.com.cn/o/2013-07-17/23346675794.shtml


    And remember, if one needs more precise translation (based on character/word/phrase), just try following site:

    MDBG Chinese-English Dictionary
    http://www.mdbg.net/chindict/chindict.php


    This info is intended for BCers who don't read the CHN chars but have interest to read such news, for occasionally still seeing some complaining the posted news links are unreadable when there are free tools to resort to. Just need to throw in some efforts!

    Still, the online translation devices are not the best and do often not reveal the spirit of the content. That is why it is always more interesting to read the translation efforts of our own members who are conversant/knowledgeable with the subject, and fluent in both languages. Like Justin L, who has always (and kindly) done an outstanding service to us all in this respect.

    A brief summary is that Lin Dan mention that he maintain his physical training during from till date. initial plan was not to take part in Sudriman and World championship but with the wild card he is caught unprepared (insufficient time to regain his form i guess).

    He felt that the intensity of the tournament would be different from the past where he held WR of either 1 or 2 as it would be more intense this time round.

    Although he won againt chen long in a training match but he attribute that to wind conditions and Chen long not playing to form.

    On LCW declaration on brining his family to celebrated his potential win he only mention that as a top athlete he would know how to perform to his best even when he has fatherhood duties now.

    lastly is Lin Dan played down his chances as he said he will do his best in every game.

    he he he... ofc i won't deny that the machine/auto bot translators can't match the human's fluency (and my sincere appreciation to the many of such kind services done by BCers here)... but again, it's a kind of luxury that's consuming time and effort for such manual labor [thus shouldn't demanded], and whereas such absence prevails, then just resort to above free web resources.

    I am not sure what he is trying to prove. He is already a legend for winning 2 Olympics gold.

    If he looses this one. Reputation goes down. Let's hope he can win it.

    CL is already 10% down due to respect and psychological thoughts.

    In the latest release of BWF rankings, Lin Dan is ranked 100, up 2 points from last week, with 15,850 points.

    Almost exactly a year ago, he was ranked #1.

    Yeah, I get that, but I'm just stating the current position, and if he doesn't make his move, he won't get automatic entry into any SS/SSP event from now...

    ...if at all he intends to really continue...

    LD did not plan to play SC and WC this year. But BWF gave him wild card, he had to prepare for this WC. If he can beat CL, it means he is back now. This year's WC may be more exciting than 2011.
