4 Chinese national players applied to be national coaches.
according to Chinese media, 4 Chinese national badminton players have applied to become a joint national team player as well as coach. it was not said what the purpose of the dual status is but Li Yongbo do think that it is a good idea considering the seniority and age. the 4 players are :
Xia Xuanze, Zhang Ning, Zhang Jun & Gao Ling.
Li Yongbo has passed the applications to more senior level management for approval.

Seems like they don't want to play in the 2008 olympic. Senior management likely have the final say. Hopefully china will have comparable replacement for them 4, especially the XD team.

I think they wont get the opportunity even if they want to play in 2008 Olympics... But hopefully they won't miss many tourneys because of their coaching status if its approved.

just read that the 4 players, and in addition, Chen Hong, have gotten their approval from the senior management. so from now on, the 5 of them will be able to take on the role of coach as well as players. however, the report also says they will be focusing on the Sudirman Cup to be held in Beijing next year. so their coaching time will be limited until then.

They must be feeling threatened by the amazing results of the juniors...

latest word in the media is that only Xia and Zhang Ning got approved to become coaches, Zhang Jun, Chen Hong and Gao Ling will remain as players.

the Chinese team held a winter conference today (Jan 06 2005). the conference touched on subjects such as the 5 applications mentioned in this thread. according to the report, all 5 applications have been approved. however, Li Yongbo also says the while that is so, the 5 players will maintain their player status and their focus right now is still to play and not to coach badminton.

As for Zhang Ning, even though, Li YB wants her to stay until 2008, but that's such a big risk. If she can adopt her own experience to help the young sisters to another lvl, it's a better bet in the long run.
