BEIJING, June 20 (Xinhua) -- With over one month away from the Rio Olympic Games, Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia is surely an odds-on bet for the men's singles badminton crown, which has been eluding him ever since.

Being a senior player at the age of 34, Lee enjoys a bulging collection of 64 titles and 30 silvers, with an itchy heart for the glaring missing of golds in either the Olympic Games or the World Championships.

Back again to the top of the latest world ranking on June 16, Lee hopes to save the best for the last by winning the men's singles in Rio, as he himself is again running towards the peak of his form while his chief rivals are suffering ups and downs nowadays.

"The Rio Games might be my last Olympic Games, and I will try my best to win the gold medal," said Lee, born in Oct. 1982, after winning his 6th and record-equalling Indonesian Open title in early June.

Since from the 2015 Sudirman Cup, his first tournament after serving a backdated eight-month suspension for doping violation, Lee took back to back titles by winning the US Open and Canada Open, settled for the second at the World Championships, won the French Open, and even reaped his first ever China Open title, all in 2015, thus making him the first ever men's singles shuttler to have won all Super Series titles.

Lee ended the year 2015 with three back-to-back titles, entered the 2016 by winning his fifth Malaysian Masters title in January, his 11th Malaysian Open title in April, and his second Asian Championships title in April, won all his matches during the Thomas Cup in May.

In June this year, Lee also won his 6th and record equalling Indonesian Open title, and becomes the first non-Indonesian to win the title for six times.

During his pinnacle of career finals, Lee made the Olympic men's singles final twice, but was defeated twice by China's Lin Dan in the 2008 Bejing and 2012 London Games. For the World Championships, Lee entered the men's singles final three times, but ended up as runner-up every time, first to Lin Dan in 2013, then to Chen Long, also of China, in 2014 and 2015.

The past two years witnessed a confident Lee in peak form, as he has met Chen Long four times, and won three times in succession in the China Open, the Malaysia Open and the Asian Championships.

However, Lin Dan might still be Lee's most agonizing rival en route to his hopeful glory moment in Rio. After beating Lee twice in Beijing and London Games, Lin only met Lee once in any major tournaments ever since, winning 16-21, 21-13 and 21-17 in the final of the 2013 World Championships.

For Lee, Rio de Janeiro will be either a joyful celebration or sad farewell?

SAO PAULO, March 27 (Xinhua) -- Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino could miss Brazil's World Cup qualifier against Paraguay here on Monday due to illness.

The 25-year-old missed the team's final training session at the Corinthians sports center on Monday after suffering flu-like symptoms, Brazil team officials said.

He was replaced in the first-team's training exercises by 31-year-old Sport Recife attacker Diego Souza.

Brazil are already without Daniel Alves for the clash at Corinthians Arena after the Juventus full-back was suspended for picking up a second yellow card in the Selecao's 4-1 victory over Uruguay last Thursday.

Sevilla's Mariano is expected to take Alves' place in the starting lineup.

Brazil currently lead the South American zone World Cup qualifying standings with 30 points from 13 matches, seven points ahead of second-placed Uruguay.

Paraguay are seventh with 18 points, three points shy of the automatic qualifying places with five matches remaining.

KIEV Adidas NMD R2 Australia , May 25 (Xinhua) -- The Ukrainian government stands ready to start a prisoner exchange with pro-independence insurgents in the eastern regions, Ukraine's head of the Security Service said on Thursday.
