    I think LD for sure. Heck, he basically invented the superman dive of badminton.

    Today he did one against PG and then recovered in time to deflect shot back for winner.

    LD does it alot. But that one rally between LCW and Taufik made LCW look REALLY fast.

    Ive seen jonas rasmussen play a clean winner while sitting on the floor, having already dived to return the previous shot

    easy

    Thats easy any1 can learn to dive but its the thought of thoughtlessly throwing yourself to the floor that stops people.

    They do train on how to retrieve the shuttles. IMO Lin Dan is still the king of diving. LCW is picking up..

    Lin Dan is the king of diving and recovering, but the craziest **** Ive seen is from Xia Xuanze, you guys should not overlook him.
