    Badminton: Fans boo Chinese, Korean teams

    LONDON (Reuters) - Spectator displeasure and referee intervention did nothing to encourage the Chinese pair of Yu Yang and Wang Xiaoli and South Korean duo Jung Kyung-eun and Kim Ha-na to raise their game in a women's doubles badminton match at the London Games on Tuesday.

    Both teams, who have already qualified for the quarter-finals, delivered an abject performance that saw all four players miss routine shots throughout.

    Fans booed as shuttle-cocks were hit long or dumped into the net, prompting the referee to come on court twice to speak to the players before South Korea eventually won 21-14 21-11.

    The result means China's world champion duo will only meet the country's number two pair if both teams reach the final. The Koreans may now have to get past the Chinese number two team to reach the final.

    "Actually these opponents really were strong. This is the first time we've played them and tomorrow it's the knockout rounds, so we've already qualified and we wanted to have more energy for the knockout rounds," said Yu.

    "Really, it's not necessary to go out hard again when the knockout rounds are tomorrow."

    The South Korean players declined to comment.

    There is a possibility that both Chinese and Korean players be disqualified for their disgusting behaviour.

    Of course Chinis would be involved in another scandal. All players involved should be banned.

    Olympics badminton: Eight players disqualified

    The Badminton World Federation has disqualified eight players after accusing them of "not using one's best efforts to win".

    Four pairs of players - two from South Korea and one each from China and Indonesia - are out of the Olympics after their matches on Tuesday.

    The eight were charged after a stream of basic errors during the match.

    All four pairs were accused of wanting to lose in an attempt to manipulate the draw for the knockout stage.


    The federation met on Wednesday morning to discuss the case. As well as the "not using best efforts" charge, the players were also accused of "conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport".

    Teams had blamed the introduction of a round-robin stage rather than a straight knockout tournament as the catalyst. In the round-robin format, losing one game can lead to an easier match-up in the next round.

    Gail Emms's view

    "I'm furious. It is very embarrassing for our sport. This is the Olympic Games. The crowd paid good money to watch two matches"

    Gail Emms, British 2004 Olympics silver medallist

    In the first women's doubles match at Wembley Arena on Tuesday night, fans jeered China's Yu Yang and Wang Xiaoli and South Koreans Jung Kyung-eun and Kim Ha-na .

    The longest rally in the first game lasted four shots, with match referee Thorsten Berg coming on to the court at one point to warn the players.

    South Korea won the Group A match, which lasted 23 minutes, 21-14 21-11.

    Both pairs were already through to the quarter-finals, with the winners to face China's Tian Quing and Zhao Yunlei. The two Chinese pairings could have only met in the final following the results in the final group game.

    Speaking before the verdict, Korea's coach Sung Han-kook said: "The Chinese started this. They did it first. It's a complicated thing with the draws. They didn't want to meet each other in the semi-final, they don't want that to happen.

    "They (BWF) should do something about that."

    But Yu said the Chinese were aiming to preserve energy ahead of the knockout stages.

    A later match between South Korean third seeds Ha Jung-Eun and Kim Min-Jung and Indonesian pair Meiliana Juahari and Greysia Polii was played out in a similar atmosphere.

    Referee Berg returned to court and brandished the black card, signalling disqualification, but it was rescinded and the match resumed when the Indonesians protested.

    Both pairs had also already qualified for the knockout stages, with the winners of Group C to play Yu and Wang and the Korean pairs to face each other if Ha and Kim lost.

    The Koreans won 18-21 21-14 21-12 and did not comment before leaving the court, but Polii said: "I don't know what happened. If that's the game, we have to accept all the things.

    "Either they want to trust us - we play bad or we play good. Our control is only to play as good as we can."

    Gail Emms, a badminton Olympic silver medallist for Great Britain in 2004, who was at the event for BBC Sport, said: "I'm furious. It is very embarrassing for our sport.

    "This is the Olympic Games. This is something that is not acceptable. The crowd paid good money to watch two matches."

    China's Olympic sports delegation has begun an investigation into the matches, state media reported. The country's Olympic Committee opposed any behaviour which violated "sporting spirit and morality", a spokesman said.

    Further action could be taken based on the results of the investigation, the spokesman said in a report published by Xinhua news agency.

    The Chinese were throwing away match against Korean in Women's doubles so that China doesn't have to face another Chinese team in the knock outs (one less medal). The sham was so visible - they were serving the shuttle into the net deliberately again and again or missing even basic reply shots. You wouldn't believe that in the first set, the longest rally was only 4 shots. The Koreans saw the game and they also started throwing away the match but it was more obvious with the Chinese. Eventually, Koreans won the game but both the teams got disqualified.

    A good Sportsmanship in this case means: you play very hard so that you can move to the next round to face your team mates, then one of you to be eliminated by yourselves
    Not like before, this Olympic organizer worked out a new match formate this time, , this time a weak player can be benefited by watching the strong players elimite themselves. The player play to win, not to work very hard to defeat themselves, the organizers made rediculous rules , the sportsmen to suffer, this is the so called sportsmanship

    The formats keep changing from one cup to other or one games to the other to spice-up the competition and provide good spectacle to the audience. This is nothing new.

    Just becaue the format is not favourable to you it doesn't mean that you go and throw your matches. That's bad sportsmanship at many levels. In this case, the Chinese aim was to get the gold at any cost even at the cost of sportsmanship and olympic spirit.

    The act was brazen. Isn't know the Chinese were so stupid that their deliberate act would not be found out.
    Wonder how much more they are manipulating in the olympic games in their quest for medals.

    Where are our Chinese friends here. What spin do tet have for this shameless display?
