Yeah, if that is infact true then Li Yong Bo's evil intentions are just unimaginable. With so many bad thing people say about Li Yong Bo, I tried to remain skeptical that a head coach such as himself can these actions but I am starting to believe that Li Yong Bo is not the fair man/coach that he should be. If he is capable of shouting these comments, I don't see the reason why it is not possible for him to order his players to loose in order for his favorites to win.

China has decided not to participate in the team events at the Taipei Universiade in August but its athletes will take part in the individual competitions, according to city Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲).

Ko said Thursday that the Chinese representatives who attended a planning meeting in Taipei earlier that day did not take part in the draw to group the various teams in the summer Universiade, an international sports event held biennially by the International University Sports Federation (FISU).

China probably does not want to "take too much trouble" or they are afraid that the people in Taiwan are "too passionate," Ko said, in response to reporters' questions on the issue, but added that he really could not speak for Beijing.

Observers in Taipei said that it is conceivable that Chinese teams could be booed by spectators, especially if they face the host team. Anti-Chinese protesters could also follow Chinese teams around, creating problems for personnel responsible for their safety.

While staying out of team competitions, Chinese athletes will compete in the individual events at the Universiade, which will be held Aug. 19-30, and Taipei will make every effort to ensure their safety, he added.

According to the local United Daily News (UDN), the Taipei Universiade Organizing Committee learned only recently that China will not be participating in any of the nine team events such as volleyball, basketball, baseball and soccer.

The reason China gave is that its teams are busy preparing for the 2017 National Games that will be held Aug. 27-Sept. 8 in Tianjin, the paper said, citing Su Li-chung (蘇麗瓊), secretary-general of Taipei City Government and head of the Taipei Universiade Organizing Committee.

The paper said that while the city government is expecting the participation of Chinese athletes in individual events, that will be confirmed only if they register by the July 19 deadline.

In the report, Chen Tai-cheng (陳太正), a FISU executive member from Taiwan, was cited as saying that China's decision not to send teams to the games was not politically motivated.

However, because this is the first time that China has made such a decision with regard to the summer Universiade, it leaves "many questions open to speculation," the UDN said.

Exchanges and interactions between Taiwan and China have cooled since Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) of the Democratic Progressive Party, which is less conciliatory toward Beijing than the Kuomintang party of her predecessor Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九), took office in May 2016.

Nearly 13,000 competitors from 142 countries took part in the last Summer Universiade held in Gwangju, South Korea in 2015.


That is the main reason why China did not participate in Chinese Taipei Universiade Games. It is all due to unexplained political reason. But China side is quick to use the Chinese National Games held in China as an excuse.

LONDON (Reuters) – The disqualification of eight women badminton players from the London Olympics for ‘throwing’ their matches to secure a more favorable draw sent shockwaves through the tournament on Wednesday, and prompted cries of injustice from team officials.

The Badminton World Federation (BWF) said it had expelled four women’s doubles pairs from the Chinese, South Korean and Indonesian teams after they had deliberately played to lose their matches in Tuesday’s evening session, provoking jeers from the crowd at Wembley Arena .

The decision knocked out China’s world champion pair of Yu Yang and Wang Xiaoli along with South Korean pairs Jung Kyung-eun and Kim Ha-na, and Ha Jung-eun and Kim Min-jung.

Indonesia’s Greysia Polii and Meiliana Jauhari were also expelled for their involvement in the tainted matches on Tuesday.

Spectators booed as shuttlecocks were deliberately hit out of court, and serves dumped into the net.

A BWF panel issued the decision after a hearing on Wednesday where charges of “not using one’s best efforts to win a match” and “conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport” were brought against the players.

Both the Indonesian and South Korean teams were appealing. China, blamed by the South Korean team as the instigator of Tuesday’s farce, made no comment.

“We come here not to lose medals, we want to have medals,” the head of the Indonesian Badminton Association Erick Thohir said.

“There is no direction from the Indonesian Badminton Association to tell the players to lose. I think to blame China is also not fair.

“I think the BWF (Badminton Wold Federation) should take a look at the history of the last tournaments before they make judgments.”

OPINIONS SPLIT

The disqualification polarized players and team officials at Wembley Arena. While some regarded it as unduly harsh, others welcomed it as a good precedent for the sport, which has been dogged by complaints from players about similar manipulations in other tournaments.

Most pointed the fingers at the Chinese team for creating the scandal.

“I can say China has played dirty,” said Poland’s Korean head coach Young Man Kim. “Unsportsmanship. They fixed the matches, that’s why everything is messy here.”

Players slammed the BWF for instituting a format that was ripe for manipulation.

Badminton officials introduced a preliminary pool round for London after starting the tournament with knockout rounds in previous Games. Denmark’s head coach called for it to be overhauled, given it was prone to manipulation.

“Why would the tournament rules people have (a format) like this?” men’s singles world number one Lin Dan told reporters at Wembley Arena. “If they just had a knockout round it would all be fine. You lose and that’s it,” the Chinese added.

Danish mixed doubles player Thomas Laybourn spoke of a “tragic” situation in which the scandal had overshadowed the genuine competitors and blackened the sport’s name.

“I heard the news yesterday and everyone was talking about this and all the newspapers were writing about it, so in the end it could mean that badminton is being taken off the Olympic program in 2020,” Laybourn told Reuters.

“When something like this happens it’s not good publicity.”

The raging scandal completely overshadowed the competition on day five. With only the knockout matches to be played, the matches proceeded without incident in front of a near-capacity crowd.

This year's badminton, ah, not too much of a very harmonious gossip.

The first is "Yu Yang" incident.

In the Olympic Games bronze medal in the women's doubles match, the Chinese Tang Yuanting / in oceanic 0-2 not enemy South Korea combination Zheng Jingyin / Shen Shengzan. Don't get medals. And the second technical suspension can live pictures from the very clearly seen with coach roar two, put a towel fell to the ground.

Fall, break up, shouted Li Yongbo cheating on the towel after class, badminton now how?

Yu Yang explained after the game, his mood is a little excited

After the game, she said: I feel relieved, finally ended. Although today played particularly unsatisfactory, but for me is a relief, because I myself can also experience, other people can feel. I really by semi final defeat, their mood and the mood is still very difficult to calm down, so coach on the court give me guidance, including has been in said let me to mobilize, my mood is very excited. "

And her partner Tang Yuanting said, Yu Yang in the day before the game with his own little communication, said Yu Yang was not enough to mobilize, mental state has a problem

"The team after the game for six consecutive days, I get a low grade fever, which is affects my state, resulting in the semi-final performance affected." She said frankly that in themselves and foreign communication problems, "partner in the ocean has always been very active, but from last night to this game communicate with me the little, we can only through communication and coach tactical arrangements, but did not expect played today and why is this appearance, I think Olympic Games bronze medal match of the tournament, she mobilized enough, mental condition."

But because she said that Yu Yang, the state of mind has a problem, then as the title, many people have accused her of not playing a good drag Yu Yang. She is also in micro-blog after clarification, said he did not say that Yu Yang spirit has a problem, don't alienate them.

Yu Yang's interview also showed unwilling and regret, she said that 4 years ago, we have said that they have regrets, in fact, is to prove himself, the outside world is also very optimistic about their own

But did not expect the final result is not satisfied, in fact, not because the score, just feel sorry, because the training is very hard indeed. Life is not Lin Daiyu, not cry can be visited, he has been very hard

Fall, break up, shouted Li Yongbo cheating on the towel after class, badminton now how?

In the ocean is competed in three Olympic veteran, and at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games will took the women's doubles gold medal, now the results really make people regret. Especially in the London Olympics four years ago, when she was a big blow.

At that time Yu Yang and then Wang Xiaoli's world ranking first in the world, but in the final game of the group is considered a negative game, the results were canceled directly behind the competition.

Fall, break up, shouted Li Yongbo cheating on the towel after class, badminton now how?

Because at that time another group of China combination Tianqing / zhaoyunlei only second in the group, so two wins in Oceanic and wangxiaoli if at the end of a victory, very possible in the knockout face Tianqing, zhaoyunlei. So in Oceanic and wangxiaoli tournament in frequent mistakes, spectators and competitors were considered to be negative game, to deliberately lose not to top the group qualify.

After being disqualified, Yu Yang said in his Tencent micro-blog to retire, said he did not try to play the game just to play better, hard to prepare for four years was disqualified, very sad

Partner Wang Xiaoli also said they could not accept, the body is injured, the system is not perfect by athletes to pay

But after two people or with the national audience to apologize, said he did not follow the Olympic spirit, is not their own

Oceanic: we first because the match yesterday to apologize to all the fans, because indeed we didn't do it (follow) the Olympic spirit, also does not have the presents to the audience and fans a game of our own level, resulting in a lot of bad effects, so here first to apologize to all the fans.

Li Yongbo also said that Yu Yang will not be retired

At that time is a veteran, Wang Xiaoli is relatively young, Wang Xiaoli has also had in the ocean do not retired, he didn't want to partner with others, two people to together rematch four years.

But did not expect that last year when Wang Xiaoli because of injury recovery is not ideal, so chose to retire......

So in the ocean is only now partner Tang Yuanting pairing, but hit the Rio Olympics four, also has is very good grades the.

But before the game, after all, she was rushed to the gold medal, after losing in the semi-final, she was very depressed

And more let her some dissatisfaction is that she and partner today's performance is not good: "I think it is like a dream." In her original timeline, should take a day off tomorrow, the day after tomorrow take time to play the finals with the Japanese players. But now it has become a bronze medal with the South Korean players tomorrow: "this ball played so bad, I can not accept. Doubles if a person does not play well, (two people) will be affected, but today we are two people are not good, it really can only be a pity."

Yu Yang's latest micro-blog said that the hope that the new life is extraordinary and beautiful.

The second is Zhao Yunlei Zhang Nan broke up, Zhang Nan suspected of cheating but was denied Zhao Yunlei.

This morning, "Zhang Nan Zhao Yunlei broke up" on the hot search

They took the bronze medal in the mixed doubles competition, after Zhao Yunlei also released micro-blog has admitted separately, and their retirement

Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei are a couple, once in the Olympic Games and world championships with gold. In 2010 the Japanese super match on two successfully won the championship, Zhang Nan hugged Zhao Yunlei and kiss

The 2012 London Olympics badminton team win, they become history's first Olympic gold medal to get the couple

And Zhao Yunlei not and Tianqing partner got the gold medal in the women's doubles, such a grand slam in the history of the Chinese badminton team and also for the first time

After the 2014 Asian Games in Inchon, Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei to participate in the interview program also said that after the Olympic Games will be married

In Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei's plan, the Rio Olympic Games will be married, have children, Zhao Yunlei want two children, the best one for a man and a woman. Zhao Yunlei said that after marriage may be their main family is heavy, Zhang Nan or will continue to battle in 2020.

Two people seem to be quite a ride.

But until the play mixed doubles and women's doubles and Zhao Yunlei, but before it broke the Olympic Games and the news may give up

Just before the Rio Olympic Games, Tian Qing and Zhao Yunlei break up Zhao Yunlei only played the final mixed game. Public opinion, such a temporary waiver may not be Zhao Yunlei selfish, maybe there is a contradiction between the two can not be reconciled

The Olympic Games, Zhao Yunlei has no women's doubles tournament. As is known to all, Tianqing / zhaoyunlei partner in women's doubles, over the years has been the Chinese team's pillar, but has recently been losing, world championships zero AC strangers; March Switzerland match Zhao Tian combination loses the game, may the soup youbei lost to South Korean contestant; less than 20 days before the start of the Olympic Games, zhaoyunlei give up to participate in the women's doubles, which means that the margin of the Rio Olympics Tianqing, 4 years of efforts in vain. Many people blame Zhao Yunlei too selfish, Tian Qing put dove. But there are voices that Tian Qing and Zhao Yunlei produce an incompatible contradiction.

And the more bizarre idea that the news is: causes of Nan Zhao Yunlei, zhaoyunlei broke and Tianqing disband, Zhangnan cheating Tianqing...

There is a story about the Internet.

And a friends praised Zhao Yunlei is the best, Shun said "if it is a small dug your basement, until we go hand - in - hand tore the bitch, zhaoyunlei replies:" ha ha ha, thank you. "

But today, Zhao Yunlei said: "if people spread rumors upside down, I will use legal means to protect themselves and their families."

This is an indirect denial of the third gossip? Or take her as a standard.

No matter what the truth is, Zhao Yunlei's retirement is a fact. And at the end of the game, Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei's body language is also very interesting.

Zhang Nan has been in close proximity to the Zhao Yunlei, zhaoyunlei want to clap dodge. Finally, as if to say the words "good" and accept the Zhangnan hug, but hold very want to let go, Zhangnan but do not let go......

Down down down

But Zhao Yunlei has long said that the return to normal life after the Olympic Games, to read a master's. Loss of love is not a loss of what, she can always be very in the past.

The third is "Chen Long rude" problem

This is a little story, but also on the hot search

In fact, is CCTV reporter asked Chen Long girlfriend gossip: "toward the stands a gesture believe is for special people?" Chen Long said to yourself, then do not want to answer the question, the CCTV reporter strong request he said "one is a". But answered a question after the CCTV reporter also asked, Chen Long directly ran.

CCTV5 micro-blog is so, specially emphasized Chen long is not the first time such

This thing users have almost entirely been standing on the side of the dragon of Chen, but he throwing in the towel, love gossip and lindane fuhaifeng to retire, "Chen Long rude things hot search, look the situation was very strange...

Thus......

This topic # Li Yongbo on the list of the second class # sports.

In fact, the sound every few years to see a "Li Yongbo school" and the Li Yongbo true black material.

But this year's Olympic Badminton performance is really four years ago, the five gold medal difference too far, the dream team feel from the sky fell to the ground.

Plus athletes seem to be less enthusiastic about Li Yongbo............

A cold, do not want to shake hands with Li Yongbo Lin Dan down here

(so Li Yongbo stretched out his hand to head only)

And on the next table tennis achievement, athletes and coaches are lovely, team school enjoyable, contrast is even more stark.

In fact, it is now online hair Li Yongbo message is also an old stem, mainly the following questions.

Li Yongbo network transmission in the badminton team also has a scandal.

Micro-blog Lenovo word is like this:

Baidu Lenovo word is like this:

Can only say that at least we found that the network is really a lot of rumors.

2 economic problems

As early as 1998, Li Yongbo made a "impeachment" incident. Because of the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games Badminton players to get the bonus, part of the coach and the players doubt have economic problems, and they wrote letters reflect the situation, but in the end Xinhua news agency gave the conclusion is: Li Yongbo is not corrupt.

At that time a joint letter to the beginning of the coach Li Mao, but also to enhance the key coach Li Zongwei, and later in the overseas coaching. He later told the "Sports Illustrated" said in an interview, because the audit people have problems and so on.

Anyway, 1998 is a matter of Li Yongbo's no problem and turn the article.

Around 2008 Tianya broke the news posts and began to say liyongbo in "money" problem, broke people claiming to 2004 to 2005 interview badminton team, said players in the team can not afford to drink beverages, because the drink is a business coach relatives

3 respect for players

In the ocean he throwing in the towel after, a lot of people and a review of the news, 2013 uttered Cai Yun throw angry racket event, because the coach arrangements dissatisfaction, so long as the result is not considered members of the body can withstand.

Badminton also has two times more famous close to the public let ball event.

2000 Sydney Olympic Games, Ye Zhaoying let the ball to Gong Zhichao.

2004 Athens Olympic Games Zhou Mi was told to let the ball to Zhang Ning

The London 2012 Olympic Games, because the rules appear in Oceanic and wangxiaoli negative women's doubles game, was eventually cancelled qualification.

But because the London Olympic Badminton performance is too good, and later this thing is gone.

Li Yongbo, who had talked about the problem in Jing Chai's visit, said that at the time was the use of rules, they know the negative game is not good, but also did not think so much

Li Yongbo said, you may make use of the loopholes in the rules, but because of their qualification is really old, the International Badminton Federation will also face

Finally, he said, "the arena, the gold medal is the only standard." Jing Chai also asked: "the only?" He once again affirmed: "the only."

But the difference is that he and Liu Guoliang have been caught in the ball storm, but ultimately he is so to respond:

Wang Hao also said that this statement on him, the coach as well as opponents Zhang Jike is an insult.

4 Where is Li Yongbo's time?

Li Yongbo has been criticized for being too fond of limelight, like to make a star. Said before the end of the world broke the news that badminton players want to accompany the star to practice the ball.

But this rumor is not publicly identified so players can make nothing of it.

At least be able to search the stars and badminton players in the photo

Li Yongbo will also meet with the stars.

Liyongbo also often on television, many variety records of other sports community to nothing, but the consumption of time is he in the strongest of the brain "when the judges, which is on a regular basis to the recording studio for a day.

But the audience pointed out that each will only mention Lin Dan

Resident judges recording is certainly very much time, this is not the same as the guests attending and not the same, so it is questioned whether it took too much time on the variety show. Even the fans of the program also opened the following topic

Besides, Li Yongbo still loves to sing. From 2008 and Long Pang a song "brother" cheers, and Cheng Fangyuan in MV "is a love"......

Also acted in movies!

He has starred in the movie "Bixian 2", in which a character in a badminton coach.

Li Yongbo, of course, not useless, interviewed his journalist thought he was talking in particular direct personal style was too sharp, exactly is brought out a performance. He already is unlikely to go career, so determined to train 100 world champions, also completed the target.

London 2012 Olympic negative game also had a particularly strong "Li Yongbo class voice, but in the end London Olympic Badminton metal finishing, network voting display a lot of people think he" merits and demerits balance of.

And this session of the Olympic Games will result is not ideal, will be confronted with a lot of players retired, badminton team no achievement, against a variety of discordant gossip, Li Yongbo the crisis of public opinion will be so easy in the past it?

Four of China’s most prominent players have announced their retirement from international badminton.

Doubles players Hong Wei, Bao Yixin, Luo Ying and Luo Yu called it quits after stints with the national team that saw them win some of the sport’s biggest prizes.

Of the four, Bao Yixin was the most successful. Bao was successful with several partners in both doubles categories. With partners as varied as Ou Dongni, Zhong Qianxin, Tang Jinhua, Cheng Shu, Tian Qing and Chen Qingchen in Women’s Doubles, and Liu Cheng in Mixed Doubles, Bao was a calm and assured presence. She won 14 Superseries titles overall, of which only one was in Mixed Doubles (with Liu Cheng). It was in Mixed Doubles that she won her two World Championships medals – in Jakarta 2015 (silver) and Copenhagen 2014 (bronze).

Of all her partners, Bao (featured image) was at her best with Tang Jinhua – winning six Superseries with her. Their most memorable streak of wins was between October 2013 and March 2014 when they won seven tournaments in a row starting with the Dutch Open.

Luo Ying and Luo Yu were distinct in the badminton world for being the only twins at the elite level. Looking and playing with identical styles, it was hard for outside observers to tell one from the other. Off court, the twins were a popular pair and were always courteous and accommodating to fans and media.

The twins’ biggest individual success was at the Dubai World Superseries Finals in 2015 when they beat Denmark’s Christinna Pedersen and Kamilla Rytter Juhl in the final.

Hong Wei struck up a strong partnership with Chai Biao and the duo were often thrust into the second doubles role for China in team competitions. Hong was known for a hard smash that gave the openings for Chai to finish. The Chinese duo won bronze at the recently-concluded TOTAL BWF World Championships – their first medal at the Worlds.

Chinese badminton player free to compete again after drugs ban backdated

China's Yu Xiaohan, has received a seven-month suspension from the Badminton World Federation (BWF) after testing positive for a banned performance-enhancing drug.

She is free to compete immediately, however, because her ban has been backdated to last July.

Yu was stripped of the two silver medals she won at last year's Summer Universiade after she failed an in-competition test for banned diuretic furosemide.

She had won her silver medals in the women's doubles and mixed team events at the Games in the South Korean city,

Yu, a former Singapore Open champion, claimed she had ingested the prohibited substance in a supplement had been taking and should receive a reduced sentence.

Following arguments and evidence from Yu’s legal representative, the BWF Doping Hearing Panel decided to ban her for only seven months, instead of four-years which they could have done under the World Anti-Doping Code.

“In the athlete’s favour, it is the Panel’s opinion that Ms Yu did not take the pill to cheat or to gain a performance-enhancing advantage," a BWF spokeswoman said following the hearing.

Yu's sentence was backdated to the time of the offence on July 12 last year, meaning her ban will officially end today and she can resume competing tomorrow.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), however, could still review the decision and appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport for a longer sanction.

"We will review the reasons for the decision and subsequently decide whether or not to use our independent right of appeal to CAS," a spokesman for WADA told insidethegames.

Badminton became the latest Chinese sport to undergo a major shuffle after announcing head coach Li Yongbo is to step down after 24 years at the helm.


Reports on the mainland said Li, who led China to win all five gold medals at the 2012 London Olympics, will take up a new post at the Chinese Olympic Committee.
“This (new job) has not been announced yet ... I have been in this position for many years and also feel a bit tired ... it’s time to give the young generation the opportunity and use their new thinking to lead the team. May be it can help better the team,” Li was quoted by Tengxun sport.

Key coaching staff members of track and field and gymnastics have also been removed from the frontline to join Li in these new positions at the Chinese Olympic Committee. Those two sports also failed to perform at the Rio Games last summer. Badminton managed only two gold medals in Rio through the men’s singles and doubles.

Li watches from the gallery at the 2012 Olympics.
There was speculation that Li would step down after the London Games despite making a clean sweep of gold medals.
In one infamous women’s doubles game, favourites Yu Yang and Wang Xiaoli of China deliberately threw their group match against their Korean pair Jung Kyung-eun and Kim Ha-na in order to manipulate their draw in the knock-out stage. Both pairs were disqualified, along with two other pairs in another match.

Lin Dan re-enters the spotlight at All England championship after cheating scandal

Li won a bronze medal in the men’s doubles at the 1992 Olympic Games and became a national team coach the following year. Over his 24-year career, he led China to 18 Olympic gold medals,10 Sudirman Cup championships, nine Uber Cups and five Thomas Cup championships.

The Chinese badminton team will hire a replacement for Li before the Sudirman Cup, which starts in Australia in late May.
