    Chen Gang
    Ye Zhaoying
    Yu Jinhao

    rumors has it that there is one more. not sure who.

    it is said to see them leave. esp Sun Jun.

    Yu JinHao has had difficulty at the very top level of badminton. He seems to be more comfortable at the net but his standard has never quite been able to cope with the very top players. Witness the embaressment at the Thomas cup and losing in the 1st round of Olympics.

    Poor Sun Jun. Perhaps he can come to HK and coach me.

    Yu did well in the Sudirman Cup, partnering with Zhang Jun. but that's the only time i remember him having any good results in international tournaments. and their opponents weren't that tough either. i wonder if he'll have inferiority complex when hanging out with Gong..

    Sun Jun has his Ge Fei already, you will have to wait.
