2017-05-05

  On April 30, the finals for the 2017 Badminton Asia Championships was held at the Wuhan Sports Center. Starting on April 25, this event concluded with top honors going to the Chinese national team for the men's singles, men's doubles, and mixed doubles.

  During the men's singles, Chen Long, a player from Jingzhou, Hubei, defeated Lin Dan 2-1. This was his first championship after an eight-month break since winning the men's singles at Rio's Olympic Games.

  During the semi-finals on April 29, Lin Dan defeated Lee Chong Wei. This was their 40th badminton battle. Lee Chong Wei, 35, and Lin Dan, 34, are senior players with high-level professional skills. The thrilling games between the two have always fascinated viewers, but they will soon retire from competition. At a recent amateur badminton challenge in Chongqing, Lee revealed that he may retire after the 2018 Asian Games. It appears that time is limited for fans to witness the skills of this talented player.
