Rashid Sidek thinks Lin Dan is capable of winning gold medal twice – London Olympics Update
Singles chief coach of Malaysia Rashid Sidek commended Lin Dan’s badminton craft and declared him the potential contender for a gold medal in the mega event, set to be held from July 27, 2012.
The Chinese maestro is the first and only shuttler in history to complete the Super Grand Slam by claiming all major titles of the badminton world.
In 2008 edition of the Games, Lin Dan won his first Olympic gold medal in Beijing and this year he will make every effort to repeat history in London.
However, stats show that no one could ever defend his honour in the mega event and Rashid Sidek thinks this will put the ace under huge pressure.
Though, the badminton guru stated that the Chinese campaigner will face immense pressure but in same breath he also declared that Lin Dan has the potential to surpass all the hurdles in this race of glory.
