Fortunately, Li Zongweis badminton talent was finally discovered.

While playing in the town, Zheng Bingfa, a famous coach at the foot of the mountain, noticed Li Zongwei and took him as an apprentice. As Zong Weis enlightening coach, Zheng Bingfa was a rubber cutting worker. He became a coach at the age of 18 because he loved badminton.

After studying with Zheng Bingfa for two months, Li Zongwei won second of the boys doubles in Penang. After that, Zong Wei won his first championship with a Yunus racket he had been using since childhood, and the two sides have been working together to this day.

After a period of setbacks, Lee eventually entered Malaysias National Badminton Academy, where he met his lifelong mentor Misburn. In the movie, the Malaysian coach was molded into the devil coach in the hearts of all.

Under Misburns guidance, Li Zongwei finally realized his dream of becoming a badminton player representing Malaysia in international competitions, just like his predecessors.

However, Li Zongwei met his enemy of life Lin Dan. In the Thomas Cup in 2004, the Hong Kong Open in 2004 and the British Open in 2006, Lee Zongwei lost to Super Dan.

The climax of the film did not choose the Olympic Games or World Championships, but chose Li Zongwei a hard-won victory.

This is the losers inspirational chicken soup.

The film ended in a victory for Li Zongwei in 2006. But in the past 20 years of career, the badminton legend always seems to be dressing up for others.

He has participated in the Olympic Games four times, three times to reach the final, but were second runner-up, including two defeats to Lindane and one defeat to Yanlong; he has participated in the World Championships 10 times, four times to reach the final, but twice lost to Lindane, twice lost to Yanlong; in addition, he has never won the Asian Games championship...

By contrast, Lin Dan, who has Yu Qing complex with Li Zongwei, is much more fortunate. He has won two consecutive Olympic championships, and is the only double-lap full slam in badminton today. He also holds 20 World Championship titles.

So, is Li Zongwei really a loser?

In fact, he has won countless Championships in his career, only a little less luck in world competitions.

Known as the Open Champion, he has won 69 Open titles, 46 Super Champions, and the worlds No. 1 in more than 350 weeks, each of which is an unprecedented record.

It can be seen that failure is related to how people define it.

It is through the story of Li Zongwei that even the loser can have the same life as the protagonist, and even the loser has a bright and positive future.

As Li Zongwei wrote in his autobiography The Loser is King, The Loser can be King too. When someone says I fear my opponent, the winner is not afraid of the pursuit and challenge of other opponents! If you fail to respond with a positive attitude, the road to success will eventually be opened for you.
