KUALA LUMPUR: China’s number one Lin Dan and fifth-seeded Zhu Lin clinched the coveted men’s and women’s world badminton crowns here Sunday, as Indonesia also savoured victory with two doubles titles.

Defending champion Dan downed Indonesia’s Sony Dwi Kuncoro 21-11, 22-20 in a dramatic final to become only the second men’s singles player in history to win consecutive world championship titles. Lin, known as Super Dan to his legion of fans, dropped to the floor and pulled his shirt over his head as the 9,000-strong crowd cheered his win. “I’m very happy with his win, it’s the result of much hard work,” he said. Lin was criticised by his coach in the lead-up to the tournament for lacking commitment after he lost a dead rubber match at the Sudirman Cup in Scotland, but the champion said he had never stopped working hard. “Every step is a new beginning and a new challenge and I just try to improve myself and I never give up or relax even though I’ve won so many tournaments,” he said.
