Chinese badminton head coach Li Yongbo led his team at a brand signing ceremony in Beijing. And with about half a month to go to the 2009 Sudirman Cup World Team Badminton Championships, Li says he's eager to win.

Li Yongbo, Head Coach of Chinese Badminton Team, said, "As the head coach of the team, for sure I hope my team can win more honors. My aim is not only the 7th win of the Sudirman Cup, I hope the Sudirman Cup trophy will belong to Chinese team forever."

Badminton's Sudirman Cup is held once every two years. Starting in 1995, China held exclusive ownership of the Cup a whopping 6 times, losing only once, in 2003.

China will send a big squad this time, with 25 players in all. Stars such as Lin Dan and Xie Xingfang are on the list. But about one third of the players will be new faces on the team.
