Seeing as the Olympics thread is a minute by minute commentry of the sport on tv at the time, i thought this headline might have been lost..
Olympics badminton: Eight women disqualified from doublesEight badminton players have been disqualified from the women's doubles competition after being accused of "not using one's best efforts to win".
Two pairs from South Korea and one each from China and Indonesia made a series of basic errors in Tuesday's matches.
All four pairs were accused of wanting to lose, in an attempt to manipulate the draw for the knockout stage.
Who would have realised that the Babmington World Federation would be a shining beacon in stamping down this sort of thing...
I was immediately reminded of Scotland Versus New Zealand in the 2007 world cup..!
