Unlike many of the world’s top players, Lee Chong Wei did not start off early in his career being successful, neither as a junior nor as a senior earning his first title at age 21.
It was from that moment that began to appear more and more among the best players of the world-conquering multiple Opens until in 2006 managed to win the Gold medal in the Asian Championship thus becoming the 1º of the worldwide ranking.
Over the years it has always been among the best in the world has been number 1 for several years.
If you look at the list of major competitions where he has medals may seem a bit strange this classification and the highlight he has managed to achieve for almost 15 years but in competitions with less expression as is the case of the Opens he has achieved numerous victories.
Already at 35, he is still one of the best players today and certainly one of the best ever in the history of the sport.
