    Hi BCers,

    Not having time later, I shall start this thread for Day 2 Matches at the 2012 London Olympics on Sunday, 29-July.

    IOC control their show so strictly that we are finding info quite different from how we usually obtain our Badminton results, live scores, live streaming, etc., etc., ...

    Anyway, here are some links (from what I have found);

    For Schedule of Matches;
    http://www.london2012.com/badminton/schedule-and-results/index.html
    and/or
    http://tournamentsoftware.com/sport/matches.aspx?id=029C3CC4-48A0-47DB-901F-6CE32DFB717A&d=20120729

    For Time in London;
    http://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_GB.aspx

    For our BC PAW Game;
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php/294-Olympics-LONDON-2012

    For Live Streaming;
    Perhaps BCers from different countries can post the links that are working for their regions. Different countries sometimes cannot use the same links. Here is what IOC informed us (how to watch live);
    http://www.olympic.org/content/broadcaster-home/
    and/or
    http://www.youtube.com/user/olympic
    and/or (from info from our BCers)

    Yup, particularly in their second meeting...
    The Russian stunned home pair Adcock/Bankier yesterday, Zhang/Zhao should be extra careful for this time encounter.

    I agree with people's comments on Adcock/Bankier yesterday. Undoubtedly, the home pair are good, but they haven't shown how to consistently put a run of wins together. How about 50:50 between Russians and Chinese?

    If Russians can sustain their level play at 2nd and 3rd game yesterday, they certainly have chance. But not with their first game, way too slow. And of course, would love to see Zhao Yunlei vs Sorokina in front. :D

    Cutie #2 v Canadians. A win-win situation for me but I suspect the Canucks are in for a spanking.

    Do or die for the MAS pair. They need to eliminate MJ's net dominance and target the unstable CX.

    The Japanese performed rather ordinarily yesterday but... Reiko still looked gorgeous. A good opportunity for the Canadians to grab a win.

    First time saw Bodin/Jonjit played yesterday and Bodin definitely one angry fella...Jongjit bit on calm side but sometime get carried away

    Bona/Ahsan so dissapointing yesterday, arent they realized they played on Olympics ??
    Defense is weak, no coordination whatsoever

    Mel/Greys get wake up call not to take lightly any pairs and it proved yesterday..
    Versus Ha/Kim will be so difficult :(

    Hey I second this! :D I think it's quite a perfect combination with calm in front and someone who has anger issue is given opportunity to smack everything fast and hard. :D So far they play like a normal player, I mean, without so much fancy play and deceptive style, lets see how they fare against other opponents who has better offensive and defensive shots.

    About Meliana/Greysia, I think they didn't expect to get those kind of play from AUS pair. Man those gals were fast and brave. :D It was definitely wake up call, there are so many area as their homework. I notice they often get carried away with opponent style of playing and losing their foot and discipline in both front and back area. It's good they have rest day today, same as Bona/Ahsan
