    Congrats to Wang and Lee. Beating the Minions, Endo/Yuta, Daddies and Twin Towers. The 2nd game was similar in fashion to yesterday semi final.

    What an anti-climax, Li/Liu just can't get their game going, the TPE MD pair on a roll.

    WCL has improve a lot man, it's the reason why they're so good in this olympics. strong defense and great flat play, and he's also much more deadly at the front court now. it feels like I'm watching different player wow

    Have to say that they are the best MD right now. Fast strong accurate.

    Can they go on to win many more titles or vanish just like the last 3 MD Olympic medallist

    My lack of sleep brain after a whole week of full night wake ups because the matches often start at 2 am

    Amazing, Congratulations to the TPE pair of Lee Yang/Wang Chi-Lin. They were unseeded, lost in their first match and nearly out of the Group Stage; only to beat the top 4 seeds to win the Olympics Gold Medal. Well-deserved winners indeed! The twin-towers Li Junhui/Liu Yuchen were comprehensively beaten. It was almost a rout like yesterday's SF in the second-set. The TPE pair is too quick and too powerful for any pairs to handle this past week. Wang Chi-Lin's lightning smash is just unstoppable and Lee Yang is getting ridiculously good at the net! T

    Team INA needs to reshuffle its top 2 pairs now. Hendra Setiawan/Mohd Ahsan are too old and too slow to handle these fast young pairs (including the MAS bronze-medallist Aaron Chia/Soh Wooi Yik). Meanwhile, the problem with Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Marcus Fernaldi Gideon is with their mental attitude - they are just not dependable at these top tourneys (Olympics, World Championships). Kevin likely need a new partner and a power smasher that can match Wang Chi-Lin. Make the decision to break up the pair and start them out early (like Lee/Wang who was only formed in March 2019)!

    Kevin still has a chance at top glory as he will only turn 26 years old this year.

    They lost only to Satwik/Chirag in this tournament.
    Satwik must be thinking...!

    Loving the playlist here
    I've been off of watching badminton since pandemic, and since I only listen to Kpop voluntarily, I'm kinda isolated from this 'inspiring'-type western song

    Hope that the tour can go on more 'normally'
