    Nooooope. The Olympics spirit has died loooong way before that, back then in 1930s, when a certain person didn't allow (he did later though, when threatened with a boycott) some athletes to participate solely because of their race. ;)


    Commercialization, performance enhancer drugs, and, ahem, match-fixing, simply put nails in the coffin. :)

    No disrespect to Ville Lang, but I'm sure the Malaysian practice pushes LCW's ankle more than Ville will tomorrow. Im definitely looking forward to him playing Simon though.

    Never underestimate any opponent ...... 'cos their shuttle returns have the capacity to, ahem, injure you.

    Sorry OT.

    The Olympics quota nonsense strikes again. In Gymnastics today, reigning world champion Jordyn Wieber of the US failed to make the all round final because a max of only 2 per country can qualify. She was the 3rd highest American in qualifying and 4th overall.

    Instead of Wang Xin vs Rena Wang on the Olympic/youtube livestream we are being entertained by two of the prettiest ladies on court, Aussie Victoria vs Slovakian Monika.
