    The real strength of Chen Long here is that he is calm and unfazed by any sort of nerves. Everyone is nervous and choking and committing a lot of mistakes. But Chen Long is calmly doing his game plan.

    VA have all the bells and whistles in his badminton right now. For me he is the most complete player at the moment. I know he has the stamina to run with Chen Long. He has been re-designed to run with Momota after all.

    But! Will he be able to withstand that pressure and not choke? Will he be able to remain calm? I'm not so sure.

    CL's toughest and most dangerous opponent was LJZ but the latter fell short and let the Dragon escaped.

    It's a disaster to the world and VA especially. VA didn't text LJZ the tips.

    First, his net game will falter against Chen L

    And then his control will be taken away from him.

    And then we will be mourning a 10 and 11 loss here.

    How is it a travesty? Isn't the Games all about giving equal opportunity to everyone to prove your worth? If that's a travesty, then let rich be rich , poor be poor. Give OG Gold, silver, bronze to WR1, 2, 3. Also, I've read posts saying these Games don't look like usual Games. Top players were given chances , they didn't grab it. That's there to lose, how can Games be faulted for it.

    I think we all know VA gonna choke as usual, his only chance to win is if he somehow destroyed CL in 2 games.

    His net game might falter but as long as he drops some nuke smashes he will be fine.

    Should he fail to drop these nukes then it will be dangerous for him.

    Apart from that, he is an absolute top player. He comes from tiny country and didn't enjoy the privilege of top class badminton programmes, like guys from China, Denmark, or Japan.
    Look at his title collection:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Cordón
    This man has dominated badminton in North - and South America for over a decade and now he's beaten a top ten player, gave the world #2 a good run for his money and will contest for the Bronze medal. Guy's a legend, if there ever was one.

    No no, now you can expect any post nowadays. One day I read here "Ginting, Axelsen if they win gold they are better than LCW". Why ? Coz LCW is mentally weak. Lol

    There are multiple events where you can win more than 1 gold in a single Olympics
    Shooting : Yang Qian won 2 gold in Tokyo
    Table tennis : China individual and team
    Athletics : individual and medley
    Tennis : individual and doubles
    Badminton : singles, doubles, mixed doubles. eg, Zhao Yunlei won WD and XD gold in 2012.
