    historically Japan has not been a major badminton supporter. Their rise to power and importance is relatively recent. Every team has different priorities.

    I agree. Asia is not monolithic, and priorities depend on the country/badminton association concerned.

    Its related to funding from BAM. The girls are not listed in category A, instead were listed in category B. Category B sport_ppl are required to be funded by their individual sport body; and BAM has declined to fund them. So, no go for the ladies team. Not sure for the individuals event though.

    Thanks for the info and clarification. Still I strongly feel BAM should bend the rule about the Category A and B differentiation and fund the Cat B players for what is Asia's Olympics as they are all representing the nation. There are many Asian nations participating who stand little to no chance of medaling yet that doesn't stop them from going.

    To me, BAM's decision is self-centered and failed to see the big picture, esp when for the last decade or so Asia has risen in stature both economically and politically, and is now regarded as the world's new center of gravity. Hence the Asian Games today has similarly risen in status compared with the '80s and '90s.

    I suspect BAM's funding problems may have to do with the recent domestic political developments after the fall of the Najib administration embroiled with the 1MDB scandal and the rise of the opposition taking over the government. Just saying.

    By the way, when Wang Shixian won the WS gold beating Wang Xin in the Guangzhou 2010 Asian Games as well as being a key member of the winning women's team gold, it's a huge achievement for her, esp in China, so much so she was specially invited for a CCTV interview.

    That happened to be her only major title apart from a bronze in the Paris WC the same year and , if you like, twice All England champion in 2011 and 2014.

    And for Chen Long, as I've posted, he's made it his personal goal to clinch the Jakarta Asian Games MS gold as it's, to him, the only major title missing in his career. Let's wait and see.

    China, Indonesia and Korea have won the majority of Gold medals and overall medals in badminton.

    Link: https://en.asiangames2018.id/news/articles/sport-preview-badminton-2018-asian-games/

    • China (40) has won the most badminton gold medals at the Asian Games, followed by Indonesia (26) and Republic of Korea (16).
    • China (101) also leads all NOCs on most total medals won in badminton at the Asian Games. The only other NOCs with more than 50 medals are Indonesia (91) and Republic of Korea (66).
      • India has won eight medals in the sport, all bronze. No other NOC has won more than four badminton medals at the Asian Games without winning gold.

    Hope so. Wang Shixian is Chen Long's wife now, they got married last November http://www.badmintonplanet.com/badminton-news/11286-chen-long-wang-shixian-tie-knot.html

    For the Rio'16 Olympics, Chen Long brought home the gold for her as a present. If she asked him for the Asian Games Men's Singles gold this time, I'm sure Chen Long would do his utmost to grant her wish. We'll see.

    She should threaten to leave him if he failed to do so. Might boost up his motivation level or backfire though.. :D:D:D

    Love is a greater motivation than threats which may backfire.:D:)

    CHN table-tennis have been doing this for years, but CHN badminton is surprisingly lagging behind on "disruption/disturbance training" -- to the point that He Bingjiao complained about the crowd (cheering FOR her) during her WC game against Marin...

    Needless to say, Marin has gained the respect of Chinese fans for beating the Chinese crowd (especially in her match against He Bingjiao) -- who disruptively cheered for the underdogs, aka all her opponents, at all of her matches...
