    I feel sorry for the fact that:

    500 millions rupiah = 51,000 US dollars...

    This is like a heaven and hell situation for Taufik...

    If he were to succeed and get the gold... well he now know what kind of rewards(heaven) he will get.

    But, If he were to lose... I wonder what kind of hell he would have been in right at this moment...

    Now... We know why he was motivated...

    I heard that in INA, lots of family lives on C$2 a day!!! US$51K, may not be a lot for a world champion but it was a lot in INA. Take LCW for example, it was published he made >RM$300K this year, that is <C$100K in Canada. When tennis player can win $1M for one grand slam event plus endorsement and lousy hockey players with limited skills, skating up and down, right and left can make minimum US$500K is absurd. That's because of media TV commercialization of those sports. As I said before, if China keeps dominating badminton and no new challengers coming up, badminton will never get the dollar recognition and becomes more of regional sports dominated by Asians. Sad but realistic.

    Agree with U. Heard that chinese players have to give half their winnings back to their association, and probably no such house and $51K incentives. Other than INA, MAS provide huge incentives for winning the 1992 Thomas Cup. If chinese govt provide similar incentives, many chinese players would be motivated and LD position in the national team is not too safe and competition would be fierce.

    haha are u kidding??? lousy hockey players?!?! do u know how hard it is to play hockey at a pro level, a lot harder than badminton.

    also, chances are, badminton players will never get the fame and fortune of hockey, golf, tennis, baseball, football, soccer, basketball and F1 athletes. thats just a fact of life u'll have to live with.
    and what does it matter if china keeps dominating badminton?? canada/russia dominate hockey, usa dominate basketball and baseball and yet they all have yearly salaries that badminton players will probably never make in their life times.

    for the asian game, half of zero is still zero (if i'm right).
    i'm sure chinese players would get something for winning a gold but i'm sure no where near taufik's official 51K plus other non official incentives.

    A lot harder? It's too hard to tell unless they did specific studies on the requirements in energy and all that required. Badminton requires plenty of starting and stopping, as well as quick change of directions, not to mention deception, slices, high speed smashes and drives, as well as diving and constant jumping (especially true for doubles).

    True, at the current rate, badminton players have it much harder than most other atheletes. It's ridiculous, IMO, that golf, baseball, and F1 generate so much revenue. The skill and effort required in those I find far less than most sports, and it's terrible that they make an obscene amount sometimes. However, if something can be done about it, I'm sure that badminton could generate more popularity and publicity as well as revenue. Just look at soccer, volleyball, and basketball: Very popular, lots of skill and effort required, and plenty of revenue. Badminton is similar to those three, with the difference being in revenue.

    Eh? USA dominates the Olympics, coming in first, but so does China, usually close behind. Yet, USA, being the richer and more influential of the two, can popularize the sports it dominates (I do think our basketball team for the Olympics has declined in the last few years, our best no longer wish to go, as they already make millions just by playing in the NBA). So I do think that if the USA were to improve in badminton and popularize it, badminton would generate more revenue.


    Anyways, that really is quite a bonus that Taufik received. Even in the US, that would be quite attractive, unless they were obscenely rich already (as some of our athletes are).
