    The big title this year is Asian games, not WC. If LD do not go to WC the regrets are not his, but the fans' who like to enjoy the best badminton.

    Curious American asking Chinese Nationals.
    Who's more famous in China: Lin Dan, Lebron James, Cristiano Ronaldo, Roger Federer, Tiger Woods?

    I read somewhere that Lin Dan was the most famous athlete in China, after Yao Ming retired from the NBA.
    ...but I'm not chinese so I don't know if it's true...

    If I were to compare Lin Dan with someone in another sport, it would have to be Ronnie O'Sullivan (snooker).
    So many similarities... And both the most natural talents ever seen in their sports.

    i think Li Na is the most famous. She certainly makes much more money than Lin Dan in terms of sponsorship. If Lin Dan does indeed sign with adidas, hope that will narrow the gap.

    Cool

    "i think Li Na is the most famous. She certainly makes much more money than Lin Dan in terms of sponsorship. If Lin Dan does indeed sign with adidas, hope that will narrow the gap."

    I think it's very wrong to associate the athlete popularity [of different sports] with the amount of money in terms of sponsorship. Under current establishment, those glamour sports like tennis, golf, soccer, Formula-1 racing, basketball, American football, boxing will surely be loaded with MUCH more cash, not only in terms of tournament prize money, but also the athlete sponsorship.

    There's simply no way that other traditional sports incl. badminton can compete with those few elite sports in terms of money abundance and the very generous media coverage incl. the broadcast right contracts... remember, those few sports are elevated, and are indeed the crown jewels and showcases of the successes of the current capitalistic system. Whenever you tune in the major TV sport channels (subscribed or FTA) under the giant networks, most likely you will watch either one of the aforementioned sports...their overwhelming presence are imposed on you, you don't have the alternative, unless you go to internet seeking for streaming

    IIRC the total prize money in just ONE grand slam tennis tournament may exceed or nearly equal to the TOTAL prize money for ALL the badminton tournaments throughout the year! Go figure.

    Btw both Lin Dan and Li Na were named Chinas CCTV Sports Personality of the Year in 2014

    So is Lin Dan a household name in China? For example, I would be fairly confident that at least one person in each family in America knows the name Lebron James, probably greater than 75%. Can that be said about the average family in China with regards to Lin Dan?

    Wow, LD can't be that desperate for money for being in that Shell lubricant commercial, can he?

    Imho the tattoo meaning commercial by Intel's Look Inside campaign is a million times better.
