No Lin Dan in Birmingham

After a source close to Badzine had first hinted that the two-time Olympic champion would not travel to Birmingham for the upcoming Yonex All England, and this was followed shortly afterward by a denial from himself in an interview in the Chinese news agency Tencent, it is now official that will not fight to keep his crown. His name was taken off the entry list, which was updated on the official BWF website today.

Lee Chong Wei now looks like to be the main favourite to win a fourth title in Birmingham at the beginning of March.
