Despite winning the gold medal in Tokyo, Lee Yang and Wang Chi-Lin’s mentality has remained unchanged. The Chinese Taipei duo said that they will keep the approach of “challengers” in the tournaments that lie ahead in their journey.
Wang Chi-Lin also said that they will participate in only select tournaments this year and that the goal for them next year is the All England title and the Asian Games gold.
Lee and Wang were also awarded 20 million NTD (roughly 715,000 USD) by the Chinese Taipei government. Both of them chose to receive the award in the form of monthly installments. Both of them plan to buy new houses where they can enjoy life with their families.
