Strange Olympic Badminton
« on: August 02, 2012, 05:29:19 AM »
The eight Olympic badminton players from South Korea, China and Indonesia disqualified for "strange" games.

In scenes of farce at Wembley Arena on Tuesday evening, the top seeds from China, two from South Korea and another from Indonesia seemed to want to lose in an attempt to manipulate the draw.

The crowd were booing loudly as it was quite obvious what was going on.

Poor sportsmanship - they got what they deserved.

Yep, that's totally against the Olympic spirit.

I can't see the video. :(

But yes, those players got what they deserved. It's really sad considering they were the top seeds.

The video was removed due to copyright claims, as expected...
