    Not surprised he plays - he's a pretty active guy. He even released a Judo DVD XD

    I think Putin is much better than Medvedev. Maybe he is going to do a backhand smash...

    Just post a comment on the article site. Considering that it is the UK, have that writer write about his match with Gail Emms.

    Screw the writer or that article. "Has somebody told Mr Putin that badmin is not very macho?.......Now Russian PM Vladimir Putin, who likes to bill himself as a macho tough guy, has been showing off his skills in that most genteel of sports – badminton"

    WE all at BC forums should write a hate-mail to the writer.

    "Do you know badminton is the fastest sport in the world? Only comparable to speeds of Formula 1 racing? Please research your topics before you write stupid-false headlines."

    does it mean;
    1. sending nuclear bomb to the writer?
    2. put a 0.45 bullet into the writer's head?
    3. land a 12lbs sledgehammer onto the writer's leg?
    4. send 12 BCers to kick boxing the writer?
    Julian?

    This view looks even better than the first one. Maybe the rich and famous will gravitate toward badminton more with facilities like this. And BCer can vacation in luxurious baddy resort one day, great views beside the court, with message and spa to pamper the wife or after a hard game.
