    Coincidentally and interestingly, at the Rio Olympics, the two Longs 龙 reign supreme:

    Ma Long, 马龙, in Table Tennis

    Chen Long, 谌龙, in Badminton

    Hail the two Dragons !

    WSX is usually such a cool player, rarely do we see her true emotions (other than... angry looking).

    that's so sweet.

    Chen Long's Rio OG 2016 triumphant looks alike Copenhagen WC 2014 story as he tremendously experienced the most diificult times of his badminton career after Thomas Cup failure, lots of criticism and lack of self-belief but he turns to be different player in individual prestigious event.

    Li Yongbo moved to tears talking about Chen Long: cannot blame him for Team Championship losses

    In the Rio Olympics Men's Singles Final, Chen Long withstood pressure to prevail over Lee CW to capture the MS Championship. Post match , Chinese badminton Head Coach Li Yongbo was moved to tears during the interview.

    Li Yongbo when talking about Chen Long shouldering the burden these few years, was emotionally stirred. " Many people don't quite understand him, (in team events) after losing the match, many criticize him. But so many years now I've come to understand him a lot. He and Lin Dan are different. For Lin Dan, sometimes you've to criticize him a bit, need to be a bit harsh on him, but not to Chen Long. When Chen Long runs into a difficult situation, you've to help him, comfort him."

    Chen Long won't be playing any tournaments next month, having just puled out of both the JPN Open and the KOR Open Superseries according to the latest BWF M & Q reports dated 26th Aug.

    I suspect that wedding bells may be ringing very soon for Chen Long and Wang Shixian. That'll be lovely. Just speculating but we'll see.

    The news headline is facetious (not meant as a criticism):

    Shouldn't the other guy be crying? Chinese badminton player's reaction to winning gold may be the most over the top Olympic celebration EVER!

    Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ist-gives-celebration-EVER.html#ixzz4J51vfLEX

    The 27-year-old's priceless reaction came after Long defeated Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei to win his first ever gold medal.

    [To me, Chen Long's Rio'16 celebration is as ecstatic, overwhelming and memorable as Lin Dan's London'12 who isn't as over-the-top as as his Beijing'08. Don't forget, Chen Long just months prior lost the Thomas Cup, his second debacle in his career, and his beloved girlfriend was deselected for the ROG'16, so we can imagine the pent-up emotions, the cumulative pressure and anxiety building up to immense relief and utter joy at having redeemed himself, fulfilled his promise and delivered when it mattered most , all coming together and released at one go, transporting him - Justin]

    "The Daily Mail is a British daily conservative, middle-market tabloid newspaper owned by the Daily Mail and General Trust"

    To be honest Chen Long's celebration was understandable, and really not that ridiculous.
    I didn't know what to expect from Chong Wei, obviously he was disappointed, but mostly kept it together this year.

    Difficult for him to peak again so soon after Rio, what with all the victory celebrations both at home and in Hong Kong. Good for him to have a good rest , spend some quality time with his family and WSX and recharge before training himself to peak again for next year's WC. Will be most happy if I can see him meet LCW and beat him again in the fourth consecutive biggie.

    I think both LD and LXR were defeated in the immediate next tournament after london olympics, if i remember correctly. CL deserves his defeat too after all the hard work before and during Rio :)

    For sure he will lose in one or two tournaments leading up to the next WC. I will be happy if he can play with the same kind of form as in the Olympics in a rematch with LCW.

    Lin Dan won 4 consecutive big titles ( WC/Olympics) in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009. Let's see whether CL can match him.

    @Rob3rt



    We need this angle for all the tournament. Instead, we will get French Open matches streamed from the top of the Eiffel Tower.

    @Nine Tailed Fox
    And since you're asking about Momota's incredible net play and control, yes I totally agree. Much better than LCW, CL, or LD. Here's a video. So miss him...
