National Sports Bureau Officially affirm Lin Dan as a World Champion
Superdan became a men's singles world champion before chinese "dog" new year arrived. National Sports Bureau Officially affirmed Lin Dan as a World Champion after he had got men's single champion of the Invitational World Cup. At the same time Xie Zhongbo and Zhang Yawen also were regarded as mixed doubles world champions.
World Cup's champions are looked the same as olympic champions and world championships' champions in China. The world cup returned after it was closed down in 1997. "The champions of Invitational world cup must be recognized by National Sports Bureau as world champions becouse of so many years of cancelling." Li Yongbo said.
Lin Dan said:"I look on National Sports Bureau's recognizing as a kind of encourager, and being world and olympic champion is my "biggest" aim in the future "

Who is the National Sports Bureau? Is it a Chinese organization or is it international? If it is Chinese, then that's a bit of a joke to declare LD the World champion. Granted LD has been playing very well lately but IMHO, the "World Champion" label is reserved for the winner of the World Championships (and we know who that is).

Yes, World Cup is not World ChampionShip.
They are not allowed to give Lin Dan a "World Champion" title, only IBF is allowed to do this...

this joke is not funny at all. would you think that a country so great will do such a low and embarrassing thing? they are dominating now, they don't have to dothat and go back to the era before they join ibf.
In one commentary at lativi last week ae, imelda said that she had seen the stock of good players from china(so abundant) that they will surely dominate at least till 2010 especially on WS and WD. no, china is not that lame to do a self proclaim greatness.

As I mentioned earlier, IMHO, there is only ONE world champion, and he is the one who wins the world championship.

This is funny. You have to win the world championship in order to become the world champion. This so-called "National Sport Bureau" can choose for the best player and honor him as the "National Sport Bureau's best player of the year", but not the title "World Champion".

Yes, i can know that from his name "cao ci dan".
i hope he can win WC in Madrid. otherwise, it may destroy his confidence. he has too much stress as he tells he nearly crashed when hes 0-13 down in WC final last year. i wish this wouldn't happen this year.
the champions of World Cup in Yiyang last year were tagged with "WORLD CHAMPION". and they have their own pictures put together with the former world champions of China.
it is important for them to get the title coz they will be treated differently after retirement.
