She always seems to have a lot of strapping on her legs and elbows. Perhaps a cumulation of injuries is taking their toll.

Sigit was all wrapped up like a mummy a few years ago but he managed to beat his injuries. Maybe Gong just runs out of motivation?!?

At least she is still active in the badminton arena. Too bad we might not be able to see her in action for international meets.

Gong Ruina Quits National Badminton Team
Author: CRI Online
Tuesday 7 June 2005
Former world champion Gong Ruina has decided to leave the Chinese national badminton squad.
The decision came after the International Badminton Federation's latest announcement of not granting wildcards at the World Championships.
The veteran shuttler had been plagued by injuries since the Athens Olympiad and was left out from the upcoming World Championships. Therefore, she decided to leave the national team.
However, her native Hunan provincial team was not previously aware of her decision. They hoped she would reconsider her decision and remain on the national squad.
