The Danish maestro Peter Hoeg Gade paid homage to his contemporary Chinese shuttler Lin Dan by calling him the greatest of his times.
The 35-year-old Danish living legend Peter Gade is going to grace the Olympics for the last time as he is expected to call it a day after spending 17 years in badminton arena, which itself a record that nobody is likely going to break.
The former All England champion Peter Gade is determined to end on high despite of the fact that he will have to excel the top players like Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei, Chen Jin, Chen Long and Lee Hyun-Il in his last All England Open.
But out of all these heavy weights, Peter Gade is impressed by the Chinese ace Lin Dan only and calls him the greatest and incomparable.
Gade said, “But there is no doubt that Lin Dan is the best of them. I don't think that anyone is close to him, to be honest. “
