The best idea to make the charity event is to hold an exhibition match between Zhao Jianhua and LCW. Guarantee would gather lots of support and spectators. Match of the century..

Chong Wei’s ‘Hope & Smile’ fundraiser a huge $uccess
KUALA LUMPUR: One of the racquets that was used to win the All-England badminton men’s singles title has been sold for a cool RM200,000.
The sale was made yesterday at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara here during the auction of the “Hope & Smile” charity fundraising project organised by two-time champion Lee Chong Wei for the earthquake-tsunami victims in Japan.
Chong Wei donated the two racquets he used en route to winning the All-England for a second time in Birmingham last month together with two shirts and a pair of shoes.
The other racquet was sold for RM85,000 while the shirts had a combined price of RM50,000.
The shoes Chong Wei wore fetched RM24,000.
Earlier, Chong Wei entertained the huge crowd at the charity event by dishing out a delightful performance in an exhibition match against former Olympic and world champion Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia.
Two of the best shuttlers in the world wowed the crowd and the match ended with a 22-20, 21-19, 22-20 victory for Chong Wei.
“I’m happy with this project and I would like to thank my good friend, Taufik, for helping me out,” said the world No. 1.
He added that although the earthquake-tsunami struck Japan on March 11, he was unable to organise the fundraiser earlier because of his involvement in the China Super League.
Meanwhile, the two racquets used by Chong Wei and Taufik for the match were also sold at the auction for RM 84,000.
The Badminton Association of Malaysia’s (BAM) president, Datuk Seri Nadzmi Mohd Salleh, was also present to hand over a RM15,000 cheque from funds collected from BAM council members.
Chong Wei will head back to China for his last match in the China League.
His next international tournament is the Super Series in India Open from April 26-May 1.

KUALA LUMPUR: Lee Chong Wei is torn between his loyalty to his old and new coaches.
And after a meeting with the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) yesterday, the 29-year-old decided that it was best for the national body to choose the coach for him for the programme geared towards the Olympics next year.
He is focused on winning at the world championships in August and also at the London Games. Both competitions will be held in Wembley.
Malaysia have never won a world title or an Olympic gold medal and the country is looking at Chong Wei to nail the elusive titles.
Making a choice: BAM must decide whether Misbun (left), Rashid (right) or Seu Bok (inset) will be Lee Chong Wei’s coach ahead of the world meet and the London Olympics.
Chong Wei had been under the charge of Rashid Sidek and Teh Seu Bock after Misbun Sidek made a controversial decision to quit as national coach on Dec 31.
Last Friday, BAM president Datuk Seri Nadzmi Mohd Salleh announced that Misbun had withdrawn his resignation.
It should have been a happy ending to the controversy but the matter became complicated when Chong Wei declared the next day that he was doing fine without Misbun.
The BAM coaching and training committee chairman, Ng Chin Chai, said that Chong Wei was divided when asked of his preference for a coach.
“His body language said it all and he was not in the right frame of mind in making a firm decision,” he said.
“Chong Wei has adjusted himself in the absence of Misbun. This is preventing him from making a decision and he has left it to the BAM to make the call.
“We will find the best solution for Chong Wei. He is our best hope for the upcoming major events and naturally, we will make the best arrangements for him.”
Chin Chai, who plans to meet Misbun next, said: “We are in the midst of making an appointment with him (Misbun) to look into a new contract.
“I will then call for a coaching and training committee meeting to finalise Misbun’s role. We will solve it quickly as we want the programme to be carried out smoothly.”
On whether Chong Wei will be given all three coaches at his disposal, Chin Chai said: “I would rather go through the processes before making any comment.
“Besides Misbun, we also have to meet the NSC (National Sports Council). But we promise to come out with the best solution.”
Previously, Misbun had worked together with Rashid and Seu Bock to assist Chong Wei. But Misbun always had the final say. Who will call the shots this time?

Badminton: Zolkples: Let Chong Wei choose own coach
LEE Chong Wei should be allowed to train with whoever he wants in preparation for priority tournaments. This is the recommendation from the National Sports Council (NSC) director-general Datuk Zolkples Embong, who wants Chong Wei's request to train under Tey Seu Bock and Rashid Sidek to be granted.
"I don't want this matter to prolong as Chong Wei needs to concentrate on preparing for tournaments as he is the country's gold medal potential at next year's London Olympic Games," said Zolkples.
"We need to provide him with the best. I hope his request would be granted eventually. If he is comfortable with Seu Bock and Rashid, then he should continue with them."
In view of the latest development, Misbun Sidek is not expected to return to the BA of Malaysia (BAM) as Chong Wei's personal coach.
BAM secretary Ng Chin Chai and high performance manager Datuk James Selvaraj are both due to meet Misbun, who recently withdrew his resignation letter as the national singles coach, with regards to a new contract next week.
"We will meet Misbun to discuss on the new contract terms a week from now before we present it to the training and coaching committee for approval. Of course, the views from NSC will be taken into account before we draw out the contract as the council is the pay master," said Chin Chai.
It is learnt that Misbun will take Seu Bock's initial position as coach under the Bukit Jalil Sports School programme.

What I gather from Google is that LCW took WMC to see the F-1 race, because she had never watched one (live, I suppose) before, but declined to comment on a supposed relationship.
The problem with Google is that it throws garbage into the mix - it kept mentioning "horses", for example.
