The big badminton news so far this week is the reinstatement of former World Number 1 Lee Chong Wei.

He received an 8 month ‘sanction’ ban following the failure of a drugs test last August, during the BWF Championships in Denmark, where his Men’s singles result was disqualified.

This means he is eligible to play from 1 May and I hope he shows some of the current top 10 how strong he still is.

You can read more about the circumstances behind the violation and sanction on the BWF website here: http://www.bwfbadminton.org/news_item.aspx?id=94944

What are your thoughts on this situation and outcome?
