Every sport in the world has its legends. It is certainly not easy to rank among those whose names are well known in every home. The greatest athletes of all time must have talent, courage, passion and good health to be able to achieve what they live for. Badminton may not be as popular as football and basketball, but it is one of the sports that is always a joy to play. Badminton is one of the sports disciplines included in the Summer Olympics. To qualify for the Olympics, there is a ranking system used, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings.
Best Player Through All Times
It is not easy to decide who will get a crown for being the greatest of all time because there are different points of view and criteria. The best player through all times never gives up, an attitude that brings out the best. However, they also need some luck to keep the momentum in place.
There are a few badminton players who have made history and won just about every tournament. Some of them are still young, active and setting even higher goals. This sport is very popular to watch and play in Asia. Therefore, the best players of all time are mostly from China, Indonesia and South Korea.
