Lin Dan was met with a loosey goosey Ronald Susilo in the 1st round and was simply smoked even before he realize what had happened. The only remaining Chinese player to last a few rounds was Chen Hong. Don't know what got into Lin Dan, but he either basically wasn't prepared for the event or got overconfident, simple as that.
Fortunately for him, as happened before, the top seed never won an Olympic Gold in Badminton, so he can take solace in that.

About the peaking too early thing, did the Chinese not have an exact replica of the badminton hall built?
So it would seem the training was done to peak exactly for the Olympics, however in saying this it could be that he has "peaked" too many times this season for other competitions to get the no1 ranking and they have taken their toll on him, leaving him weakened for the Olympics.
