AE is arguable because the participants are not limited based on WR or country or anything. I mean, especially OG...
I'd have to point out that prior to Taufik's AG victory, LD beat him twice in the group match. Though I agree, Taufik's success in WC, AG, OG made him a legend of that time period, though we've easily forgotten his inconsistencies...LD's been consistently winning everything since 2004, so he's in a much better position to surpass Taufik, especially if he wins the AG this year and is crowned gold medallist at the 2012 OG.

he was so fit back then.

I miss the old super-taufik... I mean, regular 300+km'h smashes!!! That is incredible!!
Imagine what competition he would be to the top (i.e. LD/LCW) if he kept his form up to today!!
But of course, human age always takes over
That is life for an athlete as a human ^^

Everyone keep saying that Taufik are decline/weak because of his age. Human age doesnt take over(yet).
Lee Chong Wei is just a year younger then Taufik, but he is always at top of his peak. While Lin Dan is a year younger then Chong Wei. Both of them done a really good performance. What really impressive is Peter Gade, who is a 33 years old player, but still play a very great badminton and categorized as one of the strong player at this time. His mental are really strong, thats what make him still a great badminton player. While Taufik, talented, but seem not enthusiastic. If only Taufik have a spirit,discipline and strong will like on his prime time, he can get his unbelivable legend form back

Instead of age, I think it's his injuries that hold him back.

LCW is like a well oiled machine and he can sustain it.
LD, while very similar physically, mentally and perhaps technically more superior, I think due to lack of match fitness, he may from time to time exit early but LD is all about peaking at the right time!
Guess Taufik only has to summon up all his experience and refine his game like Peter Gade b'cos he (still) got game anyways. Determination, discipline, skills, desire is still there, that, I am sure. Else, he'll just hang up his rackets and walk away from the game he loves.

Reality is, Taufik's level of competition now is probably around PG, NTM, Boonsak, SS, Simon's level...it's time for him to visit the North American continent to win his first ever Canada Open GP and defend his U.S. Open title>>those are where he truly belongs..
Speaking of LD, you guys probably don't know that he's older than both TH and LCW, do you??..
