for me, it's our XD pair Nova/Butet.
PBSI should split this pair really soon. Maybe Butet/Alvent will make a better XD pair than Nova/Butet.

Lin Dan, losing to LHI in the finals of the Team Event, although he got a win over LHI in the semis of the individual event, he still failed to retribute his earlier lost by losing to Taufik in the finals in 2 sets. This is probably the first time I've seen Lin Dan's form waver like this

Overall, the MS and MD are never the "sure gold" for CHN team to begin with. Sure they have world elite level of players, but these 2 events might be the most un-predictable ones in any tournaments.
Of course, the WS crash might be out of prediction by anyone. But anyone is human being, and everyone makes mistakes. With recent piles of events, I am sure that XXF and ZN more or less are tired (physically and mentally). Never to metion that the NSS does add a bit of "luck" element in the formular as well. Actually, I consider it's a good thing, as it's a warning for the CHN team to know, they better let the young guns come up fast, and WS is not a sure gold (even though, still like 99% ). Compare to WS lost, MXD grabed the top 2 modals, more or less made up the lost from WS.
So, for a team winning 4 out of 7 gold (fine, maybe he suppose to get 5?) and 3 silvers, 2 bronzes, I can hardly say the manager is a "loser". If LYB is the loser, then I don't know what to say about the other teams.

If getting 4 gold, 3 silver and 2 bronzes means "falling", I guess the "heroes" that you support day and night (in a kinda un-reasonable way) might be buried for like 20 years already???

Korea Team can never be the biggest loser.
Reason is that after 2004 olympics, their 2 main double (Lee Dong Soo & Yoo Yong Sung and Kim Dong Moon and Ha Tae Kwan.) retired.
To still be able to compete and winning the silver, I think is a very good achievement.

LYB is a loser if you consider the following math on the paper.
1. WD: >=90% getting the gold.
2. WS: >=90% getting the gold.
3. XD: >=40% getting the gold: Besides Zheng/Gao, Xie/Zhang, other contenders are Lee/Lee, Sudket/Saralee and Nova/Butet.
4. MD: >=40% getting the gold if you consider LYB's comment on JJS: like a weight-lifter, no technique. So Cai/Fu, of course with technique, should be above JJS and pairs at similar level.
5. MS: >=40%. LD, BCL vs. LCW, LHI, Taufik. And of course if we agree with LYB, who said LD could finish Taufik in 2 games EASILY, it should be >=50%.
So, it's just simple math. LYB should bring back >=3 gold medals, but he only managed to get 2.

I think Korea team is kind of a winner here. LYD is really impressive. An 18 year old boy, already at the same level as established top MDs. The next PJB.
I would say, if this is a test, HK got A++, Mas got A+, Ind got A- (for Taufik getting the gold when most ppl are saying he is over), Kor got B or B-, Chn got at most C.

I grade them with this way as number of medals (I know gold counts a lot, but you can't consider silver or bronze as nothing, right?)
WD: Gold + Silver
XD: Gold + Silver
So, They got 6 out 10 possible (as they have only 2 * 5 = 10 entries). Never to metion, you can say that's 7, as who cares whether ZN or XXF get the Bronze in WS. How many other nations even come to closer than that???

I understand that you grade them by "fact vs. prediction". However, the favorite should NOT be punished by the over hyped "potential". It's like, someones "suppose" to get 90 in an exam, but he only gets 85. However, he's still a much better student than someone gets 50 (even though, this one "suppose" to get 40).
Also, I don't understand, how could a head coach be a "C", if his team sweep the team events, getting 2 gold in individual, and add 3 more silver and a bronze.
Folks, let's don't be too harsh to LYB or CHN team. I am not a big LYB fan, but just trying to be fair (without too much personal feeling involved). If 2 teams gold, 2 individual gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze can only get a "C", I don't know what A suppose to be: maybe all 7 gold, and none of the players ever lose a set??? Please, be real...
