China's badminton coach delighted with new schedule
Updated: 2006-11-28 13:56
Chinese badminton team's head coach Li Yongbo looked delighted as he knew on Monday the competition at the Doha Asian Games had been rescheduled.
Chinese badminton team head coach Li Yongbo walks out of Doha International Airport,Qator November 26,2006.Chinese badminton team and gymnastics team have arrived in Doha for the 15th Asian Games starting from December 1.[Xinhua]
The Chinese team arrived at Doha International Airport at 7 a.m. Monday. Several hours later, Li was told by the umpire that the team semifinals and finals would not be played in the same day, but in two days.
"I'm very happy to know that. It's good news," said Li, who had blasted at the former schedule as a "big joke".
The previous schedule had put the team semifinals and finals on Dec. 5. Li had said bluntly that it was "the most unreasonable schedule" he had ever seen.
"Badminton competition demands physical strength," said the head coach. "For Chinese players, two matches a day is too hard to stand, let alone playing the singles and doubles events the next day."
To Li's delight, the team semifinals will take place on Dec. 4 and finals on Dec. 5. He believed his 16-member contingent would fine-tune in two days.
China is the biggest winner at the 2004 Athens Olympics and 2005 Madrid World Championships as the dream team collected three and four golds respectively.
The traditional powerhouse, however, took only two out of seven golds at the Busan Asian Games in 2002. Four years around, Chinese shuttlers will vie for at least three titles, said Li

On the INA side, how many gold PBSI can vouch for??
Taufik promise 'I'll try my best'.
Mathematically, it can be ZERO.
Remember that AG is like the Olympic and WC, china can't field ALL their best players like in an Open. Taufik only has to worry about 2 chinese players. Ranking wise, TH don't have to deal with 3 other HIGHER (better) ranking chinese players.

It's like going into a gang fight but the rule disallow 60% of the opponent's weapon or members to participate I do say this is TH best opportunity to make his mark where the chinese MS players is and can't be at full participation. OG is 2 years away, next AG is 4 years away, TH need to save his strength to work on his land

[quote=cooler]At least LYB has confident for at least 3.
On the INA side, how many gold PBSI can vouch for?? 4 GOLDS
Taufik promise 'I'll try my best'. => IT IS VERY CLEAR, GOLD is WHAT HE WANTS
Mathematically, it can be ZERO.==> No...4 GOLDS
11-28-2006, 09:21 PM #80
lol, Lee YB promised 3 golds while indra promised 4 golds, so that made up 7 golds in total. Too sad for Malaysia and Korea, there is no gold left for them

China was excluded by Asian Games from the beginning. When China first joined the AG in 1974, it claimed 6 golds out of 7 in badminton. At that time, China was a mystery to everyone. After that, China continued grabbing more than half of the golds in badminton. But recently, they failed continuously, while they became dominant in AG as a whole (all events). They even didn't win any gold in badminton in Japan last time. Why? actually it is the reason that nowadays, China is too strong in sports. In early 70s and 80s, China needed the golds to beat Japan because that time Japan was the most powerful country in Asia sports. After mid 80s, China can win more than double, triple golds than Japan, so there is no need for badminton to win. Usually under Chinese system, the head coach has task to win some number of golds to keep his job, especially for WC and OG, but for AG, there is no such task at all. Even Li YB said, there is no task for him and badminton team to shot a target. The ping-pong(table tennis) team of China even sends their 2nd tier players to the AG. That's the reason, don't expect China win big at AG. Even themselves claimed AG just a warm-up exercise for OG.

The same gold medal is much much valuable for Indonesia than China. Last AG in Korea, both China and Indonesia won 2 golds. While China, as a whole won 150 golds. So China badminton turned total number of golds from 148 to 150, just 1% increase. While Indonesia as a whole won only 4 golds. So Indonesia badminton's 2 golds made total number of golds doubled, that's a 100% increase (from 2 golds to 4 golds).
So if badminton in Indonesia takes 50% total pride of their sports, while badminton in China only 1%. Now the question is whether Indonesia's 50% can beat China's 1% this time in AG?

Some politics got involved also last time. Actually politics got involved every time. Last time in Korea, Lin Dan was world number 1, while Bao was also in better form than Xia XZ and Chen Hong. But Xia and Chen got the chances to play. So they played without confidence and bigger pressure to prove they deserved to play. It's like Bao CL this time. It should be Chen Hong to play, if not Chen Hong, Chen Jin also ranked ahead of Bao. It is just politics that Bao got the chance. So he must fail because even himself cannot justify himself.
Anyway, AG champion is not that valuable for the Chinese players either. Zhou Mi got the last time AG champion, but she cannot get anything back from this champion. While WC champion Gong RN was given a job because she's the world champion. So in China, WC is much valuable than AG. There are too many Asian champions in China.

2cents, i agree. If LYB is really serious, he would pick chen hong this time. Chen hong has been on a roll lately, 2nd only to LD but told to sit out the AG.
