    Default Major sponsor for the Chinese Team?

    I just notice this from the Swiss Open 2006 pic.
    Some of the Chinese Team member is wearing DOW logo on their short. DOW is a big chemical manufacturer in the world. Now the logo is small (just a bit bigger then the Yonex YY logo) but still it is an international non-badminton corporation.
    Does anyone know whether DOW is sponsoring just the Chinese badminton players? Or, are they sponsoring other sports (Chinese or not)?

    Wow, Fedex and DOW. They are big international companies. I saw one picture on a Chinese player's shirt with another Chinese Corporation logo (and it is not China Telecom). However, I am not familiar with that Chinese Corporation.
    Do we dare to expect these big companies to support North American players? For example, Volvo supports a few Canadian mountain bikers.

    the big international companies are beginning to desire a presence in the china market. One cant be an international company without involvement with china these days. I expect to see more endorsement from the biggies, and not just in badminton.

    Those "DOW" logos on their shirt colors look good.
