    Chen Long isn't arrogant,isn't a genius neither a survivor.

    LD best performance ever was Beiging OLY and that was in the past, IMO no way LD can play at that level anymore. Where we saw LD is capable of playing were in CO and AE, he was on par with LCW and CL, i.e. the gap is very close. The fact that LD is WR3 going to RIO, and if all 4 players (LCW, CL, VA and LD) get to the SF, IMO is not easy for LD to beat both CL and LD consecutively. Any of the above 4 can win and I think it will be LD or LCW. But if we are to pick only 1 player we think can win MS gold, I bet on LD, just a gut feeling. The player that can surprise us all is VA, he has the height and has so much room to improve on. Those jumping overhead smash are potent, even though LCW defense is superb, LCW cannot even react fast enough to do his dive return (I watch them many times on BadmintonWorldTV) . He is not the favorite in most people mind, that means less unneeded pressure. If he can control his emotion and hit top form, I am not surprise if he wins it all. This OLY is going to be very interesting, all 5 disciplines have no clear favorites....it comes down to who hit top form and the DRAW:)

    So confused as to what happened to Chen Long between 2015 WC and 2016 Rio. Two tournaments where he showed his best form, but in between some really bad performances. He needs to improve his consistency on the tour.

    Right, Chen Long redeemed himself for the Thomas Cup debacle again, this time by winning the Rio Olympic gold !

    So where is Chen Long now when discussing about all time greats in MS? Two world championships and olympic gold are impressive results. Ahead of Taufik and Lee Chong Wei? Second best ever after Lin Dan?

    His record certainly suggests he's second behind Lin Dan. He's even with LCW on H2H, but has won the majors whilst LCW hasn't But LCW's dominance over the tour a few years back cannot be ignored. For me, as long as CL keeps up his form, maybe picks up another WC/Asian Game etc. he will solidify himself as above LCW on the list of all time greats, behind Lin Dan only.

    Since he had a ridiculous amount of ranking points in 2015 when he was on a roll, he didn't have to worry about qualifying for rio. When atlethes want to peak at a certain tournament, they will have periods a while before it when they work their asses off. Then when the tournament comes close they will cut down on intensity. I don't know the proper term for this in english but it's very common, maybe something along the lines of "peaking"?

    Anyway, I would guess that he started his olympic preperations, or "peaking" training in early 2016. When you're doing such intensive training, it's impossible to perform well or even play at your average level at some tournaments. Therefore bad results naturally followed.

    Yes it is, in one way you respect both yourself and your opponent in the other way you don't.

    As an example look at Marin on her semi final match that victory reminded me the pixar movie "Cars" ending scene.

    Crystal balls are for the circus.

    I'm just a keen observer of the game , being a player myself.

    Li yongbo had planned for 4 years after London.

    If u know the game, China's performance throughout this period are

    A) Chen long to replace Lin Dan, and to show it by bringing the head of their most hated enemy in the grandest of all arenas.

    B) popularize badminton (with BWF) by allowing more nations to share the titles; otherwise become too boring and the sport may get kicked out from olympics.
    So
    traded the Thomas Cup to Japan, Denmark
    Indonesia, Spain and Japan get some Olympic gold

    In return, the men doubles gold

    1) Lin Dan
    2) Yang Yang
    3) Zhao Jianhua
    4) Han Jian
    5) Chen Long

    Lin Dan has immense contribution in Chen Long's Gold Medal as rightly acknowledged by Li Yongbo. The amount of Mental fatigue LCW accumulated in reaching from 20 pts to 22 was much more than the entire Quarter Final match with Chou Tien Chen.
