    The votes here reflect on current world ranking as well as current form, and based on that Lin Dan is the supreme favourite but down the years we have seen the results coming out different than expected.

    Thus, based on form I'd say Lin Dan but on tournament history, I'd pick non-famous players.

    Ayuh Sony! ;)

    Isn't Xia Xuanze is out of the Chinese three?
    So could be LIN Dan, CHEN Hong, or BAO Chunlai.

    err...Wong Choong Hann?? I don't know, but I think he better gets the gold before he retires but I guess somebody's gonna stop him. Xia Xuanze, Lin Dan or even Sony Dwi Kuncoro. Maybe if Lin Dan gets the gold, he will be one of the most respected player ever.

    Well, I don't think there's a valid comparison between the two as Lin Dan has already far surpassed Hafiz's one AE victory. If he declines a little up to or after the Olympics, we should not label that a failure or a digression of ability as it's tough to continually win all those GPs for anybody.

    nah...i don't think that Lin Dan will be indiscipline. They are all very serious in training, if I'm not mistaken. He won the AE already but he is still progessing very, very well indeed. If he just happens to flop (i mean REALLY FLOP) after winning big event like the Olympics, Li Yongbo will be there to screw him up. Remember, there are many youngsters to replace him if he does not perform well. :cool:

    *sigh* Hafiz Hashim...a waste of talent at such a young age. :cool:

    I think LIN DAN will win the olympics and get the gold medal. He is the best player now. I will pray for him. I really wants to see him win the gold medal.
    Go LIN DAN ! Go LIN DAN ! I will support you. Win the gold !

    As of right now, Super Dan is highly favored to win the gold. He's steamrolled through just about everyone all year. Provided he doesn't mentally breakdown before the Olympics or gets injured, I'd have to go with him.

    But I hope Xia will win. :D

    I voted for lin dan but hope and expect Gade and Sony to challenge -the draw is vital -will gade get wong choong hann and lin dan in his side of the draw? -will the chinese players be kept apart so that `arranged` matches can be avoided? the days will pass slowly........
