    Btw, I have to ask this again xD
    Does anyone have a clip of some sort of Wang Wen in action? I really want to see him in action, haha.

    if you're a member at the glenora, or know a few people who are, why not ask them to find an opportunity to record a match of him playing some of the people he works with? With Dan Kai there especially (also being a native of China), i'm sure they'd be finding more chances to play games amongst the usual drills and training. its just my guess, but maybe its just more fun when its someone from home...

    wang doesnt play singles anymore, though the does play mixed once in a while (which is like the same thing eh?). And dan kai is a beast.

    if you want to watch high level play @ edmonton, go to the glenora tournament on dec 2nd to watch the finals.

    I heard Alan Thom mention him and Wang Wen did some badminton experiments long time ago, like footwork. Rumors says that Wang Wen had a lower back problem. Him and Alan devised a footwork technique and it worked.

    yes, i remembered wang wen did had a lower back problem. I think he rarely warms up before a match & maybe the reason for that. What new footwork did he devised? is it way different from the conventional steps?

    I think the original footwork (to the back corners) was like a pivot on one foot (non-dominant foot) and turn. The new footwork is slightly different. Instead of pivot on one foot, now you jump and turn in the air

    well, not everyone can do that
    wang wen is a very acrobatic player on court that i have seen.
    I have seen him doing cart-barrel rowing on the court.
    Turning in the air for him is nothing

    Alan said people were amazed he was really fast on the court. he's always back to "center" and ready for the next shot.
