Lin Dan vs Lee Chong Wei

Before I start to compare between Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei , let’s see some amazing moments performed by these two chaps !

Ok so what’s the deal with Lin Dan ? Why is he like super good that it is very hard for any other player to beat him. In this post, I am going to compare the differences between Lin Dan  and his arch rival Lee Chong Wei . It is undeniable both players have an outstanding skills so I am going to show some facts that I think some people just overlooked or just do not care. You will see what makes Lin Dan the Morpheous in this badminton world based on the three “S”s.

Strategy

Lin Dan : He picks and chooses which tournament he wants to go. With this style, he is  exempted from the extra pressure. He knows that if he loses any of the games, he will make it up on the next match. If he feels like winning the Olympic , he will join the Olympic and strive hard to win. If he feels like winning the All England , he will just join the event. The sideback of this strategy is just that he would not be ranked as the World’s No. 1 player. But who cares, he is still the best and winning all the major tournament !

Lee Chong Wei : He has to go to almost all of the Superseries and get pass every round. In order for him the be the World’s no 1 he has to win nearly all of the events. So with that kind of strategy he has to deal with the additional pressure. But hey, we have to admit Lin Dan’s is stronger mentally and more skillful so this is the only way Chong Wei can get hold of the world’s title.

Shoes

Lin Dan : Look at that pair of SHOES !! It is so awesome looking and “threatening”. It is the shoes the he wore when he won the Olympic Gold Medal and the 17th World Championship. It is said to be the most advance shoes of all time. How cool is that !! Plus these shoes are so rare that you will not find it in the normal online retailer like amazon or ebay.

Lee Chong Wei : Yellow ?? Come on man !! Seriously I am not biased towards Lin Dan but yellow is just not my color. Maybe for readers out there , this shoes looks bad ass. To each is own right ? Chong Wei used these pair during the Olympic final. The shoes is the same as the previous SHB-91 series model but Yonex has redesigned the shoes internally so that it will improved the player’s comfort, fit and performance. Sounds cool huh ?

Speedminton – An Introduction

speedminton front

All the badminton players out there, have you ever tried a game called Speed Badminton or also known as Speedminton ? Pretty cool game right ? For those who are not familiar with the game, it is actually a combination of sports like badminton, squash and tennis. Speedminton is invented in 2002 by a guy from Berlin called Bill Brandes.  Even though the sport can be regard as a young sport but it has now started to gain its popularity and played all around the world.

So how is this game different from the traditional badminton. A lot actually. First you do not need a net. Therefore the way you play the game is significantly different from badminton. You can have an ankle-high shots, knee, waist or high-arc shots. You can play anywhere you like, be it indoor or outdoor. The shuttle or Speeder as what the called it, is shorter and heavier and that makes it suitable to play it even when there is wind blowing.

If you are first timer in this game , the success rate of hitting your first speeder is very high compared to badminton due to the large spot and short handle of the Speed Racquet.

Cool! Then, how do we play it ? What are the rules? Easy. Each side of the player has a 5.5 metres of square. The aim of the game is to make sure the speeder reach the opponent’s square and cannot be returned. That simple.

For better understanding, watch this video.

To cut it short, what are the equipment needed to play this game…or sports. Both players need a racket, of  course. In a glance, the rackets used are similar to squash rackets but it is specially produced for Speed Badminton. Secondly, you need a shuttle. As mentioned earlier, the shuttle is called a speeder and it is heavier than the traditional shuttlecock. Due to that nature, the speeder can be used up to wind force 4.

For those who would like to get a hand on this sport, we recommend a Speedminton Fun Set as the gears that you should have first. It is suitable for beginners since the set contained two Speed Rackets, three Speeders/Shuttle, four Speedlights (for playing at night), one Speedbag, one Wind Ring (tools that allow you to play in wind up to 17mph), and eight cones for markers.

However if you just want to own it as a collection , some suggestion on what to do with the rackets are as below :-

(1) Forget flowers or plant. Putting the wooden rackets in a vase will give a stronger vintage touch to  your home.
