PETALING JAYA: Olympic champion Lin Dan of China is skipping the Denmark Open as well. And it is yet another opportunity for Lee Chong Wei to win his first title as the reigning world number one.

In the absence of Lin Dan, the Malaysian ace has failed to live up to his top billing in tournaments thus far.

Lin Dan has been out of competition since his rout of Chong Wei in the Olympic men’s singles final in August and flying the flag for China in the tournament in Odense from Oct 21-26 will be Bao Chunlai and Chen Jin.

Lin Dan’s decision not to defend the title presents Chong Wei the chance to extend his lead at the top of the rankings and also made amends for his losses in the Japan and Macau Opens.

RASHID Sidek has challenged the back-up shuttlers, who will be promoted to the senior squad, to start thinking big and go the extra mile to justify their inclusion in the 2012 London Olympics project.

Chong Wei Feng, Arif Latif, Tan Chun Seang and Liew Daren are certain to make the grade in the men's singles, while Julia Wong and Lydia Cheah are the women's singles who will be part of the four-year programme.

The players were in Rashid's back-up squad for the last three years and he feels promotion will put them under more pressure, but eventually force them out of their comfort zones.
