Two-time Olympic Champion, five-time World champion, and six-time YONEX All England Open Badminton Champion, Lin Dan from China, holds the accolade of winning the Super Grand Slam, and is widely regarded as the greatest singles player of all time – he is the first and only player to win all major titles of the badminton world, his most recent being the Malaysian Open in 2017. In 2017 at the World Championships in Glasgow he claimed a silver medal in the Men’s Singles final. In 2018 he entered his record 10th Yonex All England Open Badminton Championships final and took second place.
His notorious jump-smash has seen him take the win at many a tournament, giving him the title of Legend that he so very deserves.
