CareerEdit

Shin started to play badminton at the age of 8 in Wallgot Elementary School. He later belonged to the badminton team of the Korea National Sport University before moving to Gimcheon City Hall in 2012.[2] In February 2009, Shin replaced Jung Jae-sung as Lee Yong-dae's partner. They won German Open after beating Japan's Kenichi Hayakawa and Kenta Kazuno.[3] Shin and his mixed doubles partner, Yoo Hyun-young, reached the final of 2010 Swiss Open Super Series in March. They lost to second-seeded Lee Yong-dae and Lee Hyo-jung 14-21 and 18-21.[4] He also won the gold medal at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games in the mixed doubles event partnered with Lee Hyo-jung.[5]

In October 2016, BWF announced Shin Baek-cheol retirement.[7] Shin actually announced that he leaves the Korean national team before the Rio Olympic 2016, but he doesn’t confirm that he retire from badminton.[8] After his retirement, Shin were no eligible to enter the BWF international ranking tournament until he has turned 31 years of age, based on the regulations from the Badminton Korea Association. Shin and his partner Ko Sung-hyun then made an injunction to the Seoul high courts by rejecting the BKA regulations.[9] In May 2018, Shin and Ko finally got a chance to compete in the international tournament, after won their one-year legal battle against BKA.[10]
