Korea's Lee Hyun-Il is known for his graceful and spectacular swift movement and his fierce attack, he was badminton's top-ranked men's singles player from early 2000's through mid-2000's. He was beaten in the semifinals at the 2008 Olympics and suffered another heartbroken lost in the bronze medal playoff in the 2012 London.
