Looks like Surabaya's boy is back.
Just ask LD how important the AG and OG is. Two events that he got 0 (zero) gold medals on.
Ask any badminton player on what the significance of winning the Olympic Gold....yet you dare to say Olympic is a joke???

this is the Olympic's joke.
MATCHDAY 1 (OG 2004)
Shon SM vs Antti Vittikko 15-12, 15-3
Park TS vs Abhinn G 15-12, 15-0
Peter Gade vs Chien Yu - Hsiu 15-6, 15-1
LHI vs Stuart B 15-3, 15-2
Richard V vs Marco Vasconsellos 15-5, 15-5
Boonsak vs Chris D 15-1, 15-10
consider only 32 MS constestants was allowed to compete in OG, so there are 2 groups in Athens Olympics:
first group consists of top 32 player (if we use the rank date: Aug 12)
second group consists of the player whom are outside top 32
and did u know that: ALL OF THE PLAYER WHOM ARE A MEMBER OF SECOND GROUP LOST IN THE FIRST ROUND, EXCEPT THE MATCH INVOLVING THE SECOND GROUP MEMBER!
that's why I called this is the Olympics joke.
several top 32 players can't participated in OG 04, replaced by several unknown players. as a result, BWF only spent money to give a free trip to them. only needs 30 minutes to play in OG, and then they can go back to their country with a souvenir from Athen!

Alan Budi Kusuma is the first real Olympic Badminton MS champ. That happened in Barcelona 1992 when badminton was officially an Olympic sport for the 1st time.
Anyway... if your point is to claim that Yang Yang was an all time great, I agree completely. If you claim that Taufik Hidayat is not another all time great, then I disagree. Taufik will be invited to the BWF Hall of Fame because he is an all-time great.

agree with you Winston_T
ABC is just regional tournament.
BTW, taufik won his olympic gold medal on his 2'nd attempt.
taufik failed at his first attempt in sidney...
so don't worry about LIN DAN...
last time in athens was his first attempt...
and it's just a matter of time for LIN DAN to grabs that OLYMPICS GOLD IN BEIJING....

also, by most of BCers, Morten was considered as one of the 4 heavenly kings.
but, he never won OG or WC even once. the only prestigious title that he ever won was AE (4 times).
proved that winning OG or WC doesn't guarantee u could be claim as the greatest.
