I was seated almost right on the top level at Bt Jalil and managed to capture the championship match between Lin Dan and Sony Kuncoro from faraway. As a result the pics turned out to be relatively small as my zoom lens was not powerful enough to make them bigger. However the smaller pics provided another aspect to the battles below. Unlike the bigger pictures, one can view the entire court and the players from a different perspective. As a result, we can see the following: * The position of the striker relative to his opponent. This gives an instant lesson as to where the receiver should stand in the court in anticipation to the striker's position, when the shuttle is high, low, at the net, mid-court, fore-court and baseline. * The stance of the players and how well they are balanced when striking the shuttle or when receiving it. * The actual execution by the striker, his technique - how he uses his striking arm, when clearing, lifting, dropping, netting and smashing with both forehand and backhand. How the player balances his other arm, his leg action and body movement. One is surprised to see how Lin Dan can arch himself backwards to strike at the shuttle. How steady they are in their jumping smashes. How they lunge forward at the net, etc. And in execution of the backhand, how they bend at the elbow and where is the racket before, during and after striking the bird. And the leg action, when do they stand square or have the racket leg cross over? There were some hilarious moments also when one pic shows them sword fighting instead and of course when Lin has to dive and went down on all fours.
