RIO DE JANEIRO -- Chinas Chen Long won gold Saturday in mens badminton, handing Malaysias Lee Chong Wei his third straight Olympic silver medal and signaling Chens place as the games new power. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys .Chen fell face down on the court then rose weeping after his 2-0 victory. He then threw three rackets and his shirt into the crowd, which was largely filled with Chinese supporters, before draping himself in the Chinese flag.Lee, while old by badminton standards at 33, was world No. 1 and the favorite coming in. But he faced massive pressure not to lose another Olympic gold, and was coming off a hard-fought match a day earlier against Chinas Lin Dan, the man who beat him in the last two Olympic finals, that felt more like a gold-medal contest than a semifinal. Both Lee and Lin are considered by many to be the best players of their era, and maybe of all time.Chen is now making his place at the top.Chen led early in the first game of the best-of-three match then trailed before capitalizing on repeated Lee errors at the net to pull ahead and win 21-18. Chen then fought off an early Lee lead in the second game to power by the Malaysian 21-18.Though Lee played aggressively, often staring Chen down after winners, Chen seemed to have an answer to both Lees power, parrying his smashes, and to his touch, repeatedly finding his drop shots and lifting them safely toward Lees backcourt. Chens smashes more often found the lines for winners and his subtle net shots often had Lee flustered.The triumph of youth was also the story in the bronze medal match as Viktor Axelsen of Denmark beat two-time Olympic champion Lin 2-1 earlier Saturday.Despite Chens victory and an earlier gold for China in mens doubles, it has been a tough Olympics for China, which has lost its place as badmintons overwhelming superpower.
