    From a Denmark website: https://www.dif.dk/-/media/difdk/webmastergrafik/engelsk-s-side/thedanishwayofsports.pdf:


    BTW, football/soccer is the most popular sport in many countries. Despite China doing so well in badminton, football and basketball are possibly more popular in China: https://supchina.com/2021/02/03/what-are-chinas-favorite-sports/ and https://blog.statscore.com/what-are-the-5-most-popular-sports-in-china/.

    Even in HK, the most popular sport is football/soccer, by far.

    When they stood up from the floor and hugged each other again. That was very emotional

    They have been defeated in World Tour Finals 2018 as well nevertheless this will hurt.

    Surprised umpire didn’t call fault receiver on ZSW, was he that fast? Getting the shuttle right when it is crossing over the net

    this time actually i'm not so sure PVS will win....though it very much depends on how akane deals with the mountainous pressure

    Zooming across court to retrieve a smash. The side zooming. I'm glad to know there are Haikyuu fans.

    I predict more success for WYL/HDP in future after overcoming ZSW/HYQ in this major final. The Chinese have set such a high standard that the rest of the world will have to work double or triple hard to catch up with them.
