So I was always under the impression that Gao/Huang were the nicest professional badminton players ever. That was before I met her during WC2005. Whoever thinks their lovely smiles and fun personalities makes them nice people are kidding themselves. Gao Ling is a completely different person in front of the camera than in real life. I hate to say this, especially I know that there are lots of her fans here, but she's a complete [insert bad word that starts with letter b here]. She is completely rude to her fans, ignoring them most of the time. Everytime someone asks for a picture with her when she has nothing to do, she just waves you off by telling you later or ignoring you. It's the same when you try to get her autograph. When there are no cameras around, she's always grumpy looking and will only talk to people she's very familar with, sometimes even not that. I'll let you guys know that not everyone on the Chinese team likes her either. All those gold medals around her neck has gotten to her head, it would seem. The worst part is that since Huang is much like Gao too, but only slightly better. Anyone else who talked to her during the tournament have any feelings about this? Anyway, I'm happy she didn't win any gold medals this last WC.
