    Ok. I repeated the sequence again with your observations. Yes, agree. But what eagle eyes / ears you have. It was fraction of a second. At least in the NBC broadcast. I would never have caught it.

    Just now saw the results. What in the world happened ?.
    When I watched his first group match, i thought his defense was not as strong as before but never ever in my dream thought he would lose to second level Korean player. Wow. Starting from the beginning, I thought shuttle was so fast in this Olympics.
    Anybody felt it?.

    Yes the shuttle moves fast in this tournament, its hard(er) to play defense other than his reaction looks quite slow. (eye problem?). Lifts are quite often long as well.

    .....starting second day then it became a bit fast.....with many players doing simple clear but long at the backline

    Probably the worst feeling an athlete can have. Losing in his home Olympic in front of empty stands being WR1 and losing to World Rank what player, its really much worst than Ronald beat LinDan. I can say that there are not many rank 1 individual player in Japan Olympic squad, not even OsakaNaomi (except maybe Judo which they did well so far and Karate). So i think in the whole Japan squad, he has the worst nightmare.

    Yeah who knows? He might pull a Shon Seung Mo and get a silver or pull a Ji Xinpeng and get a gold.

    I hope not because I want to see Viktor vs Ginting in the final.

    It depends how you look at it. Sindhu with so many major silvers and bronzes , will you pick her over TTY who has zero major medals (has AG gold though) but won almost all tour events ?

    LCW has been consistent throughout for so many years, winning numerous tour titles and many major silvers. It needs more than just 1 OG Gold to surpass his achievements, Viktor and Ginting need to show more wins, consistency, major medals plus longevity then we can talk.
