Are there two China national teams?
I noticed that some players from China national team always wearing FedEx logo, such as Lin Dan, Zhang Ning, all the famous ones. Others like the newly crowned World cup champion Wang YH, don't. They don't have FedEx logo, but have some others companies logos. Is that the way to distinguish the team one and team two? any ideas?

there are three levels in the China's national team
It's easy to figure out.
at the moment ,there are three level national badminton
team in China.
The top one is called "China badminton team" sponsored by
Yonex and Lindan,Baochunlai,zhangning,Xiexingfeng belong to
the second team's offical name is "China Youth team" is associated with Kason, a demestic badminton equipment comepany. Actually ,Wanyihan,the new-born champion is
from this team.
the third level team ,"China Junior team" is just founded in this Augast,supported by Victor ,another china's company.
In this case,players aged 12 yrs ,are selected to train in Nanjing, a city in southern china.

In fact Wang Yihan is wearing Kason clothes because she is in the Junior team .. and kason is their main sponsor.
And Yes there is 2 teams in China
The team A : They are the only team who can be qualified to events like WC, OG, AG ... etc and of course they are the strongest and participate in all tournaments .. ( like Lin dan, Bao chunlai, Zhang Ning, Xie xingfang gao ling, huang sui etc etc ... )
and the team B : they can only participate in few tournaments, but they are also really strong and can be compare to the top 20 in the world ranking !
Few players in the B team : Li yu, Chen Li, Wu yunong, chen lanting etc etc .. many strong players =/ But i don't know why, they appear more and more rarely
For example: Hongyan said she was in the B team but after she won a bronze medal in the China Games she tought she would be in the A team but the headcoach didn't add her in the A team .. so she came in france ^^

maybe chang/gao are double olympic champs but still no great signs of domination from the china squad as a whole.

On Majors alone however I agree ZJ/GL are the dominators. 1*WC, 2*OG, 3* AE wins cannot be matched. Given that when these were gained when KDM/RKM were in their prime it really shows what champions they really are! But not dominators. ZJ likes to peak for the big ones. GL is just good all of the time!

For MD and XD, China has never, in my opinion, been dominent in these 2 areas before. In Asia, MD has always been a equal fights among the Korean, Indonesian and Malaysia (not in particular order), once a while China will produce a team or 2, but never consistent enough to be a dominent force. Whilst XD has been Korea's strong hold for sometimes, but that starts to change a bit these few years.
I think in any system, it is easier to train and develop an individual champion rather than a team champion because once it involves more than a single person - compatibility, communication, harmony on and off the court, co-operation, mutual-understanding etc comes into play and become much more complex. Sometimes it will take a long while to realise the pair may not work at the highest level. I wonder sometimes, those most successful double teams (whether MD, WD or XD) are put together by design or by chance.
