    Just watched NW/LN vs KOR and He/Yu vs POL (in this order).

    After watching the first one, I thought, He/Yu has good chance beating the INA pair;

    After watching the 2nd one (only the 2nd game), I thought, no, no chance. The INA pair will win.

    LOL. :D

    Today we will see the crowning of the WS and MD Gold medalists.

    here are my predictions:

    Sat Aug 16 10:00 Women's Singles Bronze Medal
    LU Lan vs YULIANTI Maria Kristin

    Maria's performance against ZN was so-so yesterday. but Lu Lan overall haven't been too stable either, just like her normal self. i think Maria will have a slight edge if she manage to keep shots consistent.

    Sat Aug 16 11:00 Men's Doubles Bronze Medal
    RASMUSSEN Jonas / PAASKE Lars vs HWANG Jiman / LEE Jaejin

    JR/LP all the way!

    Sat Aug 16 12:00 Women's Singles Gold Medal
    XIE Xingfang vs ZHANG Ning

    ZN has inspired me way more than XXF in this OG.

    Sat Aug 16 18:30 Mixed Doubles Semifinal
    NATSIR Lilyana / WIDIANTO Nova vs HE Hanbin / YU Yang

    the Chinese youngsters will have to contend with just a bronze.

    Sat Aug 16 19:30 Mixed Doubles Semifinal
    MARISSA Vita / LIMPELE Flandy vs LEE Hyojung / LEE Yongdae

    close match, i think INA will grab both Gold/Silver. LHJ never an inspiration.

    Sat Aug 16 20:30 Men's Singles Bronze Medal
    LEE Hyunil vs CHEN Jin

    LHI was pretty impressive yesterday. CJ less so.

    Sat Aug 16 21:30 Men's Doubles Gold Medal
    KIDO Markis / SETIAWAN Hendra vs CAI Yun / FU Haifeng

    I am going to support Cai/Fu here. they are absolutely in form this OG.

    Got no chance to watch CY/FHF vs KOR yet. From what I saw in their first match, I think MK/HS has better chance.

    Also I think Lu Lan and XXF will win in WS.

    I agree with Kwun's predictions, except INA will win the MD gold medal.

    LU Lan vs YULIANTI Maria Kristin - I think Lu Lan is still superior skill wise + home crowd support together give an advantage over Maria.

    RASMUSSEN Jonas / PAASKE Lars
    vs HWANG Jiman / LEE Jaejin - Close call but my heart goes to Jones and Lars!!!!

    XIE Xingfang vs ZHANG Ning - GJ for ZN to reach final again, but I am going to pick XXF this time, it got to be XXF!!!

    LILIYANA / WIDIANTO Nova vs HE Hanbin / YU Yang - We know who is the daddy here. Could home advantage help an upset???? I don't think so :eek:

    MARISSA Vita / LIMPELE Flandy vs LEE Hyojung / LEE Yongdae - Never though the Korean could reach this far, but I guess that's it for them.

    LEE Hyunil vs CHEN Jin - 50:50 here I say. But I would like to see LHI to get Bronze.

    KIDO Markis / SETIAWAN Hendra vs CAI Yun / FU Haifeng
    - Could go either way. But what can I say, both my favirote MD team has reached the final, let's hope it will be a good show with score like 0-21, 21-0, 30-28 :D

    i want to see 30-29 / 29-30 / 29-30

    that would make up for the impending depression i will get when the Olympics is over.
