My friend, your initial reaction is unnecessary and wrong. First, don't take the bait, Shuttle Flash meant it for youtube, the wild, wild west of no man's land where the slimiest, filthiest characters roam, not BC here where the best and brightest abound. Second, your thoughts should go like this: If I were the sportswriter, my main headline would be: Wow, Lin Dan, age 34, Silver at Glasgow World Championships ! Then in the article mentioned the nitty-gritty, like VA winning his maiden world title at age 23, Chen Long's unexpected failure to make the final or retain his title, LCW's shock R1 exit to Brice Leverdez who certainly deserves a mention. In other words, Lin Dan's achievement at the 'ripe old age of 34' puts everybody else in shame, esp those in the early or mid-twenties. Remember, when Lin Dan was VA's age, he already won a silver the year before at Anaheim, and at 23 won his first world title beating his compatriot and peer Bao Chunlai, also age 23 at Madrid 2006. The only time Lin Dan beat an older player for the world title was in 2013 , Guangdong,where LCW was a year older at 31 while Lin Dan only a year younger a 30. By the way, that is Lin Dan's 5th world crown. I can assure you, nobody in his right mind would even think of laughing or making fun of Lin Dan's amazing exploits at Glasgow, nor by extension at his legions of fans for supporting and standing by their great idol. On the contrary, looking at the podium picture, what stands out and captures our imagination should be Lin Dan who defied the odds and the ravages of age to grab a silver, not so much the young 23-year-old VA reaching his prime,the 28-year-old Chen Long, the 2x WC and Olympic champion, and the world ranked no.1, the 29-year-old Son Wan Ho. So, we Lin Dan fans should be exceedingly proud of Lin Dan and anybody who laughs at it ought to be ashamed of themselves. Besides, let's be big-hearted and have a sense of humour. Shuttle Flash has been making very good badminton videos to the benefit of badminton fans, we should appreciate him and forgive him for wanting to create some fun to draw attention to his youtube videos. If anything, I should think, the photo is conspicuous for the absence of LCW at the podium. As an aside, I also feel VA should've the good sense and courtesy to invite Lin Dan onto the winner's podium with him instead of just SWH, the bronze medallist whom he didn't get to beat. Cheers.
