Bao Chunlai

Bao Chunlai (simplified Chinese; traditional Chinese: pinyin: Bào Chūnlái; born February 17, 1983 in Changsha, Hunan) is a male, left-handed badminton player from the People's Republic of China.
The tall, powerful Bao has ranked among the world's leading singles player during the first decade of the 21st century. He has been an especially valuable member of China's world champion Thomas Cup (men's international) teams of 2004, 2006 and 2008,
winning a key singles match in the championship round of each contest. Bao has medaled in three of the four BWF World Championships that he has played in, earning a bronze in the 2003 and 2007 editions
and a silver in the 2006 Championships in Madrid, falling to teammate Lin Dan in the final. A frequent finalist in top tier international tournaments, Bao has had some difficulty breaking through in them. Outside of team events, his biggest wins have come in the Denmark (2001), Korea (2006), and China (2007) Opens. His
performances in the Olympic Games have been somewhat disappointing. He was beaten in the round of sixteen at the 2004 Athens Olympics and in the quarterfinals of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.In 2010, he successfully beat compatriot Lin Dan in the All England quarter-finals.
