Countries in east and south-East Asia are well-known for dominating the sport, especially the likes of China and Indonesia, who consistently win the Olympic Games for Badminton, the Thomas and Uber Cups Tournament and the All England Championship. The sport may not be the most important game in China as the Chinese excel in many other sports as well. However, in countries like Indonesia and Malaysia, badminton can be regarded as the unofficial national sports since this is the only sport that the two countries really excel in at the international level and pin their Olympic medal hopes almost exclusively on this sport.
