WOW. This is so interesting.
Nice table. Is that the update after China Open? If China Open is included, Denmark should have 3 for men's doubles (WC, Singapore, China).
Does this include WC? If it does then Kim/Ra has 10 titles in total.
The table above is just included "IBF World Grand Prix" in 2003 (after China Open )and didn't included the others such as World Championships, Continental Champiobnships, Continental Circuit and A or B Class tournaments in the world.
There. Yes, 15 in total.
Winners in the IBF WGP 2003 ( in 5 events)
Would you believe it... England and the USA has got as many titles as Malaysia!
What's the world coming to?
i also wonder if it would be a worthwhile exercise to try to take the star rating of the tournaments into account.
as libra pointed out, US did get two medals, but only in a little 1* tourney that is held in a far away continent. at least Malaysia got Taipei (6*) and AE (4*)
Apart from the lower ranked tournaments won by the US, shich enlisted the help of ex-Indonesian star, Tony Gunawan, England's two winnings came from the "professional" Indonesian pair of Flandi and Eng Hian, who have since returned to represent their own country.
Lin Dan appears to be the most consistent by winning not only 4 tournaments but also by doing this over a longer period of time, winning the Japan Open in January and the China Open, last one that was just concluded.
Japan Open was won by Xia.
indeed. technically, Limpele and Hian were under the payroll of England, but we can reason that they are actually Indonesians "in loan" to England.
if you roll their winning back into Indonesia, then we have a much better balance of power. with Korea #1 in MD, Indonesia #2, Denmark #3. Malaysia unfortunately, still have problems closing in the finals.
Who won the mens single for Chinese Taipei? (I've always thought we'd suck in badminton... but I guess not now! )
Fung Permadi, an ex-Indonesian who became a Taiwanese citizen. (I think)
ic... so it turns out we still suck
Good! You corrected my mistake in my statistics. Thanks very much! It's Xia who won in Japan Open.
And as from can be seen in the table above, China and Korea took hold of gold medals more than 70% in IBF's WGP series in 2003. The others must strain hard in order to catch up with them.
Malaysian Players .....
They Played Really Well to Reach The Finals, but During the Finals where they should give all they have, mistakes start coming it....
they can't deliver during the most important match... most of the time....
Its a bit annoying to be honest...but oh wells..i hope in the future they'll be able to be more consistent and deliver.
