    it is so much more fun to be watching badminton than taking photos of badminton. the crowd are cheering at the top of their throat and all i can see is a little viewfinder. a few other photojournalists are just sitting there watching instead of doing work.

    That is so so so true.
    Watching the event live is just incomparable. Nothing beats that experience.
    You even find yourself cheering madly for your favorite player :):)

    i wonder if anybody noticed that during the Choong/Lee and Chia/Chung match, there was a long delay at around 4-3 on the first game. the umpire really dozed off that match. firstly he got the TPE/MAS names mixed up, then later on he got their scores mixed up. after nearly 5 mins of back and forth plus the interference of the tournament referee, he finally got the scores and names correctly and the match could proceed.

    the Chinese crowd is really very sporting. they will cheer for any good rallies regardless of where the players are from. you will hear whole stadium cheering and clapping when they see a long a hard fought rally. of course, in times when Chinese are behind they will always goes for the JIA YOU! routine but that's very understandable.
