Lin Dan isn't just China's top-ranked player. He's so good, he's even earning Olympic berths for other people now.

Chen Jin lauded Lin's decision to go home early after Chen swept compatriot Du Pengyu, 2-0, in the final of the 2012 Badminton Asia Championships in Qingdao on Sunday.

The win gave Chen 7,000 points and helped him surpass Denmark's Peter Gade to became the world No 4 in the Olympic qualification contest.
