USA Badminton's Bob Malaythong - The Game is Deep Within Him

By June 1, 2008

Bob Malaythong will be competing in men's doubles Olympic badminton in Beijing, representing the USA on a team that, for the first time ever, has qualified competitors within all five of the Olympic badminton events.

It's obviously serious business, yet he's shown he can take a joke and have fun. If you don't think so, just take a look at the Vitaminwater advertisement featuring badminton play.

That ability to roll with the punches may come in handy when he and his partner, Howard Bach, face the best in the world! The top-ranked men's doubles teams hail from China, Indonesia, and Korea. But don't count Bach/Malaythong out.
