Well, I am critical of Lin Dan's performance recently doesn't mean he has little chance of winning at Rio, just as those who are approving of LCW's form may still think he would stumble in a major competition. Anyway, I've expressed why I voted Lin Dan in another thread opened by latecomer, LCW and the gold medal at Rio, I supposed you missed reading it. Hope is one thing, if Lin Dan has no realistic chances, not even 50%,then it's wishful thinking on my part. Incidentally,Wong Choon Han and Yang Yang , unlike Peter Gade who favoured Lin Dan, did not single out one but pointed to any of the Big Trio as likely winners. Zhao JH said its between LD and LCW. Taufik favoured LCW.
