Thread: Li Lingwei is back
12-18-2008, 10:10 AM #18
I was under the impression that Li Lingwei was LYB's boss. In one Thomas Cup challenge round Li Lingwei was the official manager of the Chinese team and LYB the chief coach.
At a dinner in KL for a group of Chinese players, including LYB, it was Li Lingwei who paid the bill and kept the receipts.
BTW, Li Lingwei is a quite sports power in China; and if it comes to any showdown with LYB I think the latter will lose.
Li Lingwei is a member of the BWF Hall of Fame as well as a Council member of the BWF. She is also a member of the IOC's OlympicProgramme Commission as well as a Deputy Director of BOCOG's International Relations Dept. She was also awarded this year the IOC Asia Trophy for her outstanding contribution to strengthening the participation of women and girls in sports around the world. She is a slo a member of China's CPPCC.

As much vilified as LYB has been, it's hard to argue against his results. As long as he can produce this kind of results, he will be Da Man, regardless where he sits on the hierarchy.
Unless there is a major scandal, no one would dare to upset the apple cart.
