China’s Lin Dan receives interviews after defeating Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia in the men’s singles final match of badminton at the 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou, south China’s Guangdong Province, Nov. 21, 2010. Lin Dan won 2-1 to claim the title of the event at Asian Games the first time.
China’s Lin Dan finally snatched the only title missing from his international honor collection of badminton on Sunday, while the hosts came through mixed feelings on track at the Asian Games.
Lin, nicknamed "Super Dan", roared with both fists high in the air after he fought to the 21-13, 15-21, 21-10 win over Malaysia’s world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei in the men’s singles final late Sunday evening.
"I am happy to win the gold medal," said the 27-year-old. "This is a long-time dream come true. But I will fight on in the future and continue to work hard."
The victory marks a flawless career for the most crowned Chinese, with glories from all the top world competitions, including the Beijing Olympic Games, three world championships, two World Cups, three Surdiman Cups and four Thomas Cups.
In the mixed doubles final earlier, however, the hosts’ pair Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei were outplayed 21-19, 21-14 by Shin Baekcheol/Lee Hyojung who brought South Korea the only badminton gold medal at the Asian Games.
