    Congrats to LD. It's a pity that it was a 1 sided match.

    I counted 5 errors (as in hit net, missed smash return etc) from LD in both sets. Forced or unforced. And that is simply un believable.

    :eek:

    Just picked my jaw up off the floor - incredible performance by LD. A worthy champion, and I'm sure all the more sweet for him because of the loss in Athens.

    And a great way to finish the badminton at the Olympics. Damn, it goes so fast....

    Bad show from Lilyana/Nova and LCW. I really dissapointed, not because the result, but their fighting spirit. Anyway. congratulation for Lin Dan, HH/YY, and LYD/LHJ for Olympics Medals.

    Golad Medals contribution still dominating by China, INA, and Korea.... Thank you for Markis/Hendra, Nova/Lilyana, Maria Kristin have given the medals for Indonesia...
    See you at London 2012

    I won't forget that performance in a hurry.

    Quite the opposite I think. LD turned from being a skillful and talented show off, into a Steely, focussed and totally singleminded player for one match and it was a sight to behold.
