The two badminton superstars were in a joint press conference in Tianhe Gymnasium for the World Championships 2013. Lin Dan has returned after taking a year break from international games to spend time with his family. So far both have beaten their first round opponents. Lin Dan beat world No. 58 Sattawat Pongnairat of the United States 21-6, 21-9, and Lee Chong Wei beat ireland’s Scott Evans 21-11, 21-15. If everything goes well, we are expecting to see the two rivals in the final. Could this be the last chance for Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei to win the gold medal for the country? They last met August in the finals in London Olympic 2012 and World Championships 2011, where Lee Chong Wei were defeated in both tournaments.
The BWF World Championships 2013 is held in GuangZhou Tianhe Indoor Stadium between 5 to 11 Aug 2013. For detail match schedules and statistics, please check out here.
