Lin Dan
Badminton
Career

Lin Dan boasts an amazing record, winning a host of major titles more than two times over. His victories include winning two gold medals in a row at the Beijing and London Olympics, two consecutive gold medals at the Asian Games, as well as holding the title of world champion for three years in a row, with five world champion titles in total. Hailed as “The King of Badminton,” he commands the court with ruthlessly efficient footwork, unparalleled momentum, and a smash that stops other players in their tracks.

“I want to get my third gold medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics, and inspire children around the world. In the future, I dream of joining up with Lee Chong Wei, Taufik Hidayat and Peter Gade to transform badminton into a major global sport. I think Yonex is the only company that can help us realize this dream. After all, Yonex is the No. 1 brand in the world for badminton.”
