Lee Yong Dae and the Legends’ Vision to make Korea debut!

18 October 2018

Having joined the Legends’ Vision project from last year, newest member Lee Yong Dae is excited to be bringing the initiative to his home country. The other four members, Lee Chong WeiLin DanPeter Gade and Taufik Hidayat, have all had the opportunity to host an event in their home country, so the coming edition, to be held December 1st in Incheon, South Korea, marks something of a milestone for the Legends’ Vision.

Started in 2015, the Legends’ Vision initiative, supported by Yonex, was created as a means to grow awareness of, and participation in, badminton globally. The five legends travel together to different countries of the world and host interactive events to raise the profile of badminton and inspire the next generation of players. The aim is to leave something behind in the countries where the events are staged, a “legacy” that will endear new generations to the sport that the legends have devoted themselves to.

Of the coming event in Incheon, Lee Yong Dae said he hopes “to develop tournaments to motivate junior players and encourage them to play and practice more and help raise the profile of badminton.” To learn more about the Legends’ Vision initiative, visit
