  • Not fair to give Lin Dan a wild card: Joo-bong (pic)

    BUKIT JALIL: Japan chief coach Park Joo-bong will be the first one to protest if the Badminton World Federation (BWF) were to offer a wild card again to five-time world champion Lin Dan of China for this year’s World Championships.

    Last year, Lin Dan was awarded the wild card despite missing international tournaments for almost a year. But the men’s singles maestro showed his prowess by beating Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei for his fifth crown at his homeground – Guangzhou. Lin Dan was given a wild card to take part in last year's World Championships, which he went on to win after beating Lee Chong Wei.

    Joo-bong said that the world body’s decision last year proved controversial as many felt that it was unfair.
