Lee Chong Wei wins 5th Indonesia Open

Jun 16 2013, 4:17am CDT | by

Jakarta, June 16 (IANS) Malaysia's top seed Lee Chong Wei won the Indonesia Open Super Series Premier men's singles title for the fifth time, beating German Marc Zwiebler 21-15, 21-14 here Sunday.

Jakarta, June 16 — Malaysia's top seed Lee Chong Wei won the Indonesia Open Super Series Premier men's singles title for the fifth time, beating German Marc Zwiebler 21-15, 21-14 here Sunday.

Unseeded Zwiebler was no match to Lee, who had won the tournament in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011, as the 30-year-old Malaysian wrapped up the final match in just 40 minutes, reports Xinhua.

"I hope I'll come back here next year. Next I would focus on the Asian Games, Commonwealth Games and, hopefully, I can still play in the 2016 Olympics," Lee said, after receiving $52,500 as prize money.

Lee had considered retirement after the London Olympics but is still aiming at the gold medal in 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, to gloriously end his remarkable career.

The World No.1 is scheduled to next take part in the Singapore Open which runs from June 18-23.

Do Large International Sporting Events Cause Local Used Bike Price to Spike?

Oct 14 2014 9:39pm CDT | Source: Bike Forums

Hi folks Tangentially related question to this forum. Does anyone here know if there is a spike in used bike prices when a large sporting event (e.g. Olympics, Commonwealth Games, etc.) occurs in a given city? Toronto is a hot city for bikes as it is, but it is hosting the 2015 Pan Am Games next summer. Was wondering if people will be more motivated to buy bikes next summer than per usual? Good time to start hoarding bikes now? Does anyone know if the new/used ski market sp ...
