  1. My suggestions here is BWF really must come down hard in these age cheaters. If not these age cheaters will continue to cheat and there will be no end to the age fabrication issues. So many cheaters here. Referring to the news above it is stated that Qiao Bin, Chen Long, Chen Qingchen and Jia Yifan have all cheated their age. This is getting more and more serious.
  2. More evidence of age cheating here. In this link below. http://www.badmintonplanet.com/badminton-news/4617-whether-the-korea-open-champion-qiao-bin-is-23-or-26-years-old.html
  3. More proves about age cheating here. In this link below. http://www.badmintonplanet.com/badminton-news/4618-how-old-are-chen-qingchen-chen-long.html
  4. In fact in WJC 2018 held in Canada last year, all those Chinese players from China playing there are all caught age cheating. All of them falsity their age and make themselves look younger than their actual age. This article and news came out is written specifically targeting at those China players playing in WJC 2018. Yet no action is taken against them and despite being caught age cheating to win medals, their medals are not even confiscated or taken back. You see to play in junior tournaments the players must be below 18 years old. That is why China players tend to cheat their age in order to play in junior high school tournaments. However in normal World Tour tournaments held on weekly basis by BWF, that is no problem because it is a senior tournament and the age of the players is not important. When you play in senior tournaments there is no age limit. But if you play in junior high school tournaments you cannot be more than 18 years old.
  5. In China competition is always very stiff and very tough. If the players want to be part of the national team, they must be able to win medals in AJC and WJC. In China only players who are part of the national team can go out for international tournaments. That means if the player is not selected to be part of the national team they cannot play in tournaments. So we have more than 1 billions of badminton players in China. But we all know not all those 1 billions can get selected to be part of the national team. Hence all the players had to cheat to survive. In fact in China all the players cheat their age. They have no choice. So it goes like a player is 23 years old but he or she makes him or her age 5 years younger so that he or she can be eligible to play in AJC and WJC and win medals. Well it is difficult for 18 or 17 year old kids to win medals. It looks easier when adults play in junior high school tournaments and they can win. That is why out of no choice all those China players are forced to cheat their age so they can survive. Well if the player did not cheat his or her age and the rest of the other players do it then he or she will be the odd one out. So the example is this. My friends all cheat their age. They are 23 years old but make themselves look 5 years younger. So they declare themselves as 18 years old and get to play in WJC and AJC plus win gold medals. Whereas I am so honest here and refused to cheat my age. So I am 18 years old but play in AJC and WJC but win no medals. So in the end my friends who cheated their age to win medals in WJC and AJC all got selected to be part of the national team. Whereas poor me the honest person that refused to cheat the age won no medals in AJC and WJC thus I cannot get selected to join the national team and cannot play in international tournaments. So you see I am giving the above illustration as an example. The honest person lose out. So in the end under such a cruel system every athletes cheated their age in order to survive. Such a sad situation indeed.
  6. To stress the main point about age cheating is rampant among Chinese athletes.
  7. Things to take note here. This is not a make up story. This are all true facts. Age cheating has been very rampant among China athletes but thus far no action taken against them. Some China badminton players fake their age and make themselves look 4 - 5 years younger so that they can be eligible to play in AJC and WJC. Below I insert the link to the news above. http://sports.sina.com.cn/others/badmin/2018-11-26/doc-ihpevhck7264007.shtml?fbclid=IwAR26s9qhkDLLaDU0Om5IuMPenoVnepvctkCW-xwaMvuMS8GgLf5rEF_VkxA
  8. Here is the original text about age cheating among China badminton players. 网友爆料国羽谎报年龄 世青赛以大打小夺3金5铜   最近,羽毛球世青赛在加拿大落幕了。去年的世青赛,国羽只拿到团体冠军,其他五个单项都丢了冠军。但今年世青赛上,国羽有了不小进步。   本届世青赛,国羽收获了3金5铜。先是混合团体赛,国羽成功卫冕。随后22名年轻队员,参加了五个单项的比赛。值得一提的是,五个单项都打进了半决赛。   遗憾的是半决赛中7场外战,国羽输了5场。男单方面,李诗沣以1比2不敌日本的奈良冈功大。女单方面,王祉怡输给了马来西亚的吴堇微,魏雅欣则输给了丹麦的克里斯托弗森。男双方面,梁伟铿/商亦辰被韩国的申泰阳/王灿淘汰,混双方面,亦辰/张殊贤输给印尼组合卡兰德/加米勒。   在男双和女双两个单项中,中国组合都最终如愿夺冠。男双决赛,邸子健/王昶21比19和22比20击败了韩国组合申泰阳/王灿夺冠。而女双方面,刘玄炫/夏玉婷21比16和21比16击败马来西亚组合陈康乐/杜依蔚,拿到了冠军。   在男双和女双两个单项中,中国组合都最终如愿夺冠。男双决赛,邸子健/王昶21比19和22比20击败了韩国组合申泰阳/王灿夺冠。而女双方面,刘玄炫/夏玉婷21比16和21比16击败马来西亚组合陈康乐/杜依蔚,拿到了冠军。 万精油微博 前天在加拿大刚结束的羽毛球世青赛中,中国队获得团体冠军。这本来应该是一件可喜可贺的事,但我却有一番很不是滋味的遭遇,现在讲出来给大家听听。 昨天晚上见到我们俱乐部一个代表美国队参赛的男孩,我问他第一次参加世青赛的感受。他说很不错,美国队获得第18名,历史最好名次。我顺便又问了一句说 详细   不过,据微博名为万精油微博的网友爆料,参加了这次世青赛的一名美国小选手,吐槽国羽球员“Chinese team cheated“ (中国队造假)。这名小选手表示,中国羽毛球青年队的球员大多数都谎报年龄。而且,实际年龄超过参赛允许年龄,参加世青赛其他国家的运动员大部分也知道这件事。   同时,这名小选手还展示了证据,表明中国过去世青赛参赛成员在国际羽联上的出生日期以及这些人在中国国内过去比赛上列的出生日期,以及这些人早年参加更早赛事的年龄。白纸黑字,基本上都是差两岁左右,有个别的甚至差三岁。对国羽而言,这着实尴尬,其实,李永波在任的时候,就严打年龄造假。看来,这些年过去了,这个问题似乎还很严重。当然了事情真相如何,还是需要国羽方面出面解释。
  9. Just found news about age cheating among China badminton players so I post it here. Seems like age cheating is rampant among China based athletes.
  10. Thank you very much for telling me about the changes made in the MD partnership. But then why the changes made in the MD partnership all of a sudden? Any reason why to it? Liu Cheng / Zhang Nan are both rank top 10. It looks very cruel to split them right?
  11. Tang Jinhua has announced her retirement last month. Today Yu Xiaohan announced her retirement. So my guess here is that both Liu Cheng / Zhang Nan have also retired but so far there is no news about it yet.
  12. Both Liu Cheng / Zhang Nan have withdrawn from playing in Australia Open. Zhou Zeqi have also withdrawn from playing in Australia Open. All these are pointing to bad signs of retirement. Any news about Liu Cheng / Zhang Nan retirement?
  13. Thank you very much for your explanation.
  14. Thank you so much for your explanation. But there is also doubts of whether Srikanth is injured or not. Seems like there is really lack of planning in terms of team events. Prannoy also talked about Indian players prefer to play in individual tournaments and he pointed out that Indian players have not been instilled with these playing for the love of your country since young. This makes it very hard for the whole Indian team to excel in team tournaments. Is this true?
  15. Found an interesting news online so I post it here. Any idea what is being discussed in the news below? HS Prannoy feels Indian camp lacks 'team culture', must take leaf out of Japan's book to be recognised as Asian powerhouse It had been heart-wrenching for Indian badminton supporters to watch the national team flounder at the recently-concluded Sudirman Cup in Nanning. First, against a young and inexperienced Malaysian squad in a Group 1D tie and then against a star-studded Chinese team in a debilitating 0-5 defeat. File image of HS Prannoy. AFP The manner in which the Indian team stumbled at the prestigious mixed team events was a hard pill to swallow, considering their individual success in the last two years. They looked anything but a unit. They appeared to be a bunch of unconfident players hesitant to put their best show on court. The results in Nanning did pose a different picture of the Indian squad. Firstly, it was bewildering to learn that India fielded the bare minimum size of a squad — 13 players, when top badminton countries like China, Indonesia and Malaysia had 20-member squads at Nanning. Secondly, the selection process and lack of backup players. India's top men's singles shuttler Kidambi Srikanth's absence due to injury weakened the squad. “It was a tough draw and we couldn’t last as we hoped. Everyone in the team has analysed that we squandered our opportunities against Malaysia,” says Sameer Verma, who wilted under pressure in a must-win singles tie. But then Indian teams have hardly ruffled feathers at team events over the years. Let’s exclude the Commonwealth Games, of course. The real competition is against the Asian powerhouses – China, Japan, Indonesia, South Korea and Malaysia. “CWG was comparatively easy and when you get to the final, you’ll do everything to win it. There haven’t been great results this year. 2017 was a good season where everyone was in form but what people don’t get is that form doesn’t come every year. People might want to say that Japan is consistently on top but it’s the system they’ve laid to churn out good results,” HS Prannoy explains. The Japanese team was the prime example of how to work as a unit consistently. World No 1 Kento Momota cheered his team like a fanboy with the rest of the squad, dancing and grimacing. A video went viral on social media platforms where Momota was in tears after losing to Shi Yuqi in the final. There was always an emotional touch to his reactions. In fact, the circuit has never seen the world champion express at any of the individual events he’s clinched so far. Same would be expected from the Chinese, Thai and Indonesians. What about the Indian camp and mentality? “For team events, we never go to win. We don’t have that culture where players will die to play for team events like the Indonesians. These traits are not instilled and it should begin from a young age. Whatever you’re doing on the court, it’s for your country and not for the individual success. You must have seen how Kento Momota reacted after winning a match at the Sudirman Cup, while on the other hand, he doesn’t even flinch after claiming gold medals at individual events,” he says. Prannoy, who registered his first major win at the New Zealand Open last month, called for a robust structure in place for the smooth functioning of the sport at a higher level. “If you look at other Asian teams, every level of players is given the opportunity to go abroad and play tournaments. Even at a Challenger tournament, you’ll see a Japanese team with their support staff, coaches and physios. Isn’t that systemized? In India, we only fight for the main team to go for the big tournaments,” says Prannoy, who made a comeback this year after almost succumbing to injuries and respiratory problems. The third and fourth batch of players have complained about the financial crunch they face while competing at international tournaments. Hence, less exposure and training. The career trajectory of up-and-coming shuttlers is worrisome and Prannoy feels that it's time for a major change. “Here we see our players and some youngsters competing on their own expense. Nobody to fund them. So, they end up playing a couple of tournaments and back off. Everything is banked on the first top-10 of the country. We need to make sure that the next batches are supported properly. I have seen so many of them leaving badminton due to lack of support. The second-largest country in the world but no champions? The system is at fault,' the 26-year-old reasons. "If I was a coach for the next 5-10 years, I would ask my wards to focus on team events rather than individual events. We’re not nurtured in that way and nobody understands the importance of representing a country at a team event. You’re playing for a group of people who are depending on your antics on the court," he adds. The likes of China, Japan, Indonesia and Malaysia have laid the foundations right from the beginning. It's evident how they are ahead of the game in terms of the quality, training methods, fitness regimes and innovations. These nations have been consistent in delivering results at the grandest stage of all. "We need to learn more from other countries. It’s important to know how we manage our load. There might be a lot of focus given on the recovery aspect, which we honestly don’t. We don’t have the resources that we should get in sports science; we’re very well behind when you compare it to other countries. It’s a matter of concern for all of us but I can only hope we make our mark at team events soon," concludes Prannoy.
