Type AB blood - badminton champion blood?
I just read an article about interviewing Li, Yongbo - Chief Coach of China badminton national team. A point he mentioned is quite interesting.
He said, according to the statistics from China team (I guess it may not be very systematic) , many (or most) champions are with type AB blood. Right now there is no further evidence to prove this point, but seems blood type does affect on the natural personal character and psychological quality, which in turn works on person's activities like sports skills/levels, etc.
What is your blood type? Maybe you are potential to be the next champion, amateurish or professional. Who knows?

Well, this is surprising! So all badminton players with bloodtype AB would be better? I'm O, and I like it.

This article is written in Mandarin. I am not sure if it has other language versions.
BTW, there is a mistake in my post: Li, Yongbo is the General Coach instead of Chief Coach now.

interesting, I'm AB I guess that might be a possible explanation on why I seem to improve very quickly compared to my teammates...

I bet you can find champions of any blood type. Interesting hypothesis but..... nah

This sound similar:
A long time ago a scientist (cannot remember his name) believe that we can tell whether a person has criminal tendencies by the shape of his skull . Judging a person by his blood group must be the top weird idea of this century.

Without actual data to back it up, this is just a silly rumour.

It reminds me of that guy advocating a specific food diet depending on your blood type...

You might find this funny, but in japan culture, a person's blood type is actually a very important aspect. They seem to think (or maybe it's just for the fun of it, like astrology in North America) that a person's blood type affects his personality. You almost always find a character's blood type in a manga's character's list and description.
With how little we know about genetics, they may be right, and they may be wrong. Statistics are only what the look like: numbers.
Maybe we should start a little investigation. We could try to search for current top player's blood type of all nationalities and see if it is true that there is a strong correlation between results and blood type. Could be a fun fact to prove.

so following the same logic, most badminton champions are asian, therefore asian are better at badminton?

interesting observation. My guess is the money. The prize money is not attractive enough. When it reach the amount near to tennis level, we'll see some 'michael jordan' wanna be will be playing badminton. Or 'King James'.

Good...more money more people "join in"
Bad.....they might have to change the rules e.g make net as high as valley ball to make it more "equal" esp for those such tall individuals like 7ft people...?!!!
Ooooh BTW...yes...I am AB type blood !!! yahoooooo...!!!

I can tell you that O +ve is by far the most common blood type in Chinese. There are far fewer AB here. In fact, there are so few AB donors in HK, the donors are put on a special registry to be able to contact them in times of need. Many of the AB donors are non chinese.
