The World Badminton Federation announced the results of the 2020-2021 awards last weekend. The Tokyo Olympic champions from other countries and regions are all on the list. Only China‘s Chen Yufei, Wang Yilu/Huang Dongping, the three Tokyo Olympic champions, lost the selection. Among them, Chen Yufei was the most controversial about losing the best female athlete of the year.

It is reasonable for Wang Yilu to not be rated as the best male athlete. In the past two years, Denmark’s Axelsen has beaten the crowd and participated in 11 competitions during the selection cycle, including 10 finals and 7 championships, including winning the badminton men’s singles gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics. It’s not surprising that Wang Yilyu/Huang Dongping failed in the best doubles combination. Compared with Chinese Taipei’s Li Yang/Wang Qilin, who won the men’s doubles champion at the Tokyo Olympics, and Polly/Rahayu, Indonesia’s women’s doubles champion at the Tokyo Olympics, Wang Yilyu/Huang Dongping is in the pandemic. During the period, the number of entries was too few, and the number of championships was therefore not as good as them. There is no dispute that Polly/Rahayou was elected as the best combination of the year, and it is understandable that Li Yang and Wang Qilin won the Most Improved Award.

What caused the dissatisfaction of Chinese fans is that the best female athlete award finally fell to Chinese Taipei player Dai Ziying. Because no matter from the results of the competition or the number of open championships, Dai Ziying can’t compare with Chen Yufei.

The BWF selection cycle is from November 1, 2019 to October 31, 2021. During this period of time, Chen Yufei won the Olympic women’s singles championship and was the main player in the Sudirman Cup and Uber Cup. In addition, she also won the 2019 Fuzhou Badminton Open, 2019 Hong Kong Badminton Open, 2019 World Badminton Tour Finals and 2020 Malaysia Badminton Masters Women’s Singles Championship.

In the past two years, Dai Ziying only won the women’s singles championship in the 2020 World Badminton Tour Finals and the 2020 All England Open, and also lost to Chen Yufei at the Tokyo Olympics.

Chen Yufei, who won 7 championships (including the team), was better than Dai Ziying, who won only two championships. Chinese fans have screamed for Chen Yufei.

Judging from the selection of the best of the year by the World Badminton Federation, there is also a precedent for the Olympic champion of that year not to be rated as the best of the previous year. For example, the best male athlete of 2016 was not the Olympic champion Chen Long, but the Olympic runner-up Li Chongwei of Malaysia. The results of the World Badminton International Open competitions have always been an important reference for the selection of the best of the year.

It is indeed a pity for the Chinese badminton team that there are no particles in the selection of the best of the year, but the achievements of the Chinese team this year are still obvious to all. The two golds and four silvers in the Tokyo Olympics and the consecutive wins of the Su Cup in the Yu Cup have allowed the Chinese badminton team to return to its position as the world‘s top team.
