Well, you have to grade these teams based on their strength. Because we are grading the performance here. Otherwise it's not fair.
Mas is more than happy to get one MD gold. But will LYB be happy if all he had is a WD gold?
btw, I don't think the percentage I used is "over-hyped". For example, I say MS is 40%, because really there are only 5 contenders of the gold and Chn has 2.

However, LYB got more than just 1 WD gold, right? Let's lay out the 7 possible gold:
Men Team: Ok, CHN is the leader horse, and they get it. Check
Women Team: No point even to discuss. Check
MS: Even if CHN got 2 candidates out of the possible 5, but this is still very open to almost every one, as MS is very un-predictable. If a 19yrs HK girl can upset ZN, I don't see why can't any MS elite to upset any top 5. Uncheck.
WS: The most disappointment for CHN. Uncheck
MD: Ok, this is known as the most un-predictable event for any tourny, and well known as CHN's weakest link. If they lost, I am not surprised. Uncheck.
WD: You might have 1 super girl to beat the CHN lady in WS, but almost impossible to get 2 together to upset the their 2 pairs (not even necessarily to be the top 2). Check
XD: Most surprising gain for CHN, gold and silver, very well done.
Overall, CHN did get all the gold it suppose to capture (besides WS), and gain a bit more surprise bonus in XD. Therefore, I will give them a score of A- or B+. Your grade of "at most C" is just way tooooo harsh.

You are saying: these are the golds that Chn should almost 100% get, and they did, that's good performance! I cannot disagree more. Also, if that's satisfactory and can get A-, what kind of score MAS should get? What kind of score HK should get? A++++++ ? I run out of "+"s... So my logic is, if we can give MAS A+, China has to be around C.
Of course there is possibility that top 5 be toppled, in fact similar thing happened in 04 Olympics, where all 3 Chinese MS are beaten by inferior players. But isn't that event considered a major defeat of Chinese MS? In fact, the possibility that a player other than the 5 I listed grab the title is really negligible, definitely <1%.

Well, I guess the way we graded this result are from different basis. I do agree that MAS and especiall HK did some great surprise, but I don't see why we need to grade CHN based on surprises.
Put this way, in NBA, we have MVP, but we also have "Most Improved" award. You can't say, ok, I give player XXX most improved, and the MVP YYY's scoring average is even 1 point below his average of last year, so, he's not MVP.
To me, HK and MAS definitely are A grade, for their "surprising" accomplishment (e.g. improvement). However, we need to grade CHN on a different scale (more like, being consistant and meet the most of the expectations), as they should NOT be purnished due to their dominating glory.

I also did not like it when he kept shouting "break his leg", "break his leg" in Mandarin to spur Bao CL against Lee CW in one of the recent tournaments. Come on, Lee CW can understand Mandarin. Do you see any coach in the history of badminton behaving like that?
TBH, I will not be unhappy to see the back of this man. China, with its depth and breadth in badminton, do not need this man to tarnish the sport and image. It is embarassing to see this man behaving like this.

The funny thing is, during the AG, LYB complained about harassment by Indonesian fans! The guy actually knows the meaning of harassment.I suppose he doesn't think he has ever harassed LCW!If a coach cannot control himself, how can you control a crowd? Clearly this guy is the opposite of Confucius. Unlike the sage, LYB's motto is: Do not do unto me what I can do unto you.
Outside CHN, LYB would be jobless. The smell alone will repel.

there are no biggest loser imo...
LCW > having a great match + bronze medal...
LD > still in the final + silver medal...
LHI > also reach his target + bronze medal...
Taufik > no need to say la...
TBH/KKK > same as taufik...
LYD/JJS > did some great job...
kido/setiawan > can be proud of getting bronze...
alvent/luluk > much more than they think of...
CY/FHF > they should know their result since their performance after WC...
Tazari/LWF > a little dissapointed but still ok...
BUT if there is a biggest loser there...
our ZN in WS should be it...
anyway she should know tat her result would be tat...
as she been forced to a rubber set from WMC...
losing to lower rank player...
she should be the 1...

Being a jounalist, it's your responsibility to try to communicate with the person being interviewed. If you find it's difficult to communicate, send someone who can speak his language or get a translator or don't complain to get left overs. It's the media try to dig something out of LYB, it's not LYB beg the media to come and make a speech.
And again, I think LYB is being overly attacked almost in every single thread. Don't get me wrong, I am more of a Li Mao's supporter than LYB dated way back then. Li Mao is known as "refuse to learn the other language" even when he was hired by KOR and now MAS. He only speaks mandarin. No one complains Li Mao about "not being professional" or what so ever. And myself definitely don't have a problem with it as well.
To me, if you require the other person to do you a favor (e.g. interview, coaching, etc), you need to go with whatever the other person's choice, but not yours.
