Indeed, the article is quite blunt in calling for LYB to step down, claiming the calls are growing louder, even stating that Cai Zhenhua, the head of the China table tennis and badminton center (second from left in the photo sitting beside Liu Guoliang, the table tennis head coach) is indirectly criticizing CBA and LYB for the deteriorating situation in Chinese badminton, thus hinting that it's time for LYB to go. I'm surprised to learn that the table tennis head coach Liu Guoliang under whose leadership Chinese table tennis continues to be dominant has expressed thoughts of retirement in Rio. He became the head coach of CHN's National Men's Table Tennis Team at the young age of 27 after his retirement in 2001, at the helm for 15 years already. He is born on 10 January 1976, now aged 40. In comparison, I guess it's difficult and awkward for the 53-year-old LYB to cling on to his post after a 23-year tenure as head coach when Chinese badminton is beset by dismal results over the last few years and culminating in the worst Olympic results at Rio, only two golds, in contrast to table tennis which succeeded with another clean sweep of the gold medals, a repeat of London 2012.
