Hello, everyone. Im Li Zongwei. After several struggles, I finally chose to hang up the racket, drawing a conclusion for my nearly 20 years of badminton career in Malaysia National Team.
Its not an easy decision to put down the racket. Im full of frustration, but its a good decision. Thank you to the coaches, teammates, all the staff of the Yuequan General Administration, the physiotherapists, all the friends who like me, love me and support me, who have seen me play and left messages for me. Thank you, I can be me because of you on the way.
Many friends ask me what I plan to do in the future. In addition to a good rest, there are many things waiting for me to do, including fulfilling my promise, taking my wife to my honeymoon, until now, when we get married, we finally have time to do it. Ha, what good place to recommend?
