Denmark’s Viktor Axelsen won the Olympic badminton men’s singles gold medal on Monday (Aug 2), crushing defending champion Chen Long of China 21-15, 21-12.

He took control early and never loosening his grip in a relentless performance.

“I still have to take this all in,” said Axelsen, 27, who didn’t lose a single game in Tokyo.

“This is the biggest achievement you can have as a badminton player and this means the world to me.”

Axelsen, who won bronze at the 2016 Rio Games, followed in the footsteps of compatriot Poul-Erik Hoyer-Larsen, the Atlanta Games champion and the last winner from outside Asia.

    I’m a crank and I don’t follow sports, but I’m glad to see that.

      The same here. Sport is something to do, not something to watch. Just like sex! 🙂

        Fair point! Although I will say, I did watch a “sport” last week. On YouTube I learned New England has a HEMA camp or something in New Hampshire. I don’t think I’ll ever go see it on account it looks shitlibby as hell. But, if it weren’t for the equalitards it looks like it could be fun.
