2012 London Olympics Day 5 (Wed Aug 1st)
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:
For Schedule of Matches;
For Time in London;
For our BC PAW Game;
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);
and/or (from info from our BCers)

things starts to heat up as we move into the elimination stage. here are some notable matches for Wednesday.
Tai Tzu Ying vs. Li Xuerui - Li will have to justify her qualification by taking on the 18 yrs old Taiwanese.
Wang Yihan vs. Bae Youn-Ju - Bae gave Wang tons of trouble in the UC 1st singles. could she have a psychological advantage here? Wang hasn't exactly been tested or even warmed up in this Olympics so far.
Lin Dan vs. Taufik - probably the most anticipated match for the day. replay of the 2004 Olympics final but now everyone is 8 years older. on paper LD should roll over Taufik but we never know.
LCW vs. Simon Santoso - first test for LCW and should be an easy one. this will give us another glimpse of LCW's real form.
Zhang Nan / Zhao Yunlei vs. Thomas Laybourn / Kamilla Rytter Juhl - the Danes are never easy meat. the last time they met was in 2010 and the Danes came out on top in 3 games. i expect this to be a close match.
Fischer / Pedersen vs. Sudket / Saralee - both teams are in great form especially Sudket/Saralee. but i expect the Danes to win with their power and speed. Sudket and Saralee will try to control the match but mgiht be overpowered.
Peter Gade vs. Son Wan Ho - PG has a 6-1 lead against the Korean, however, the last time they met in India SS, Son won in 2 games.
no comments on any WD matches.

XD is one of the most hotly contested events.
MS has really only LD/LCW
WS has the 3 Chinese and Saina
MD has Cai/Fu and LYD/JJS
and XD... the field is rather even.
it is the best of times. it is the worst of times.

Hope that the four WD pairs involved yesterday will lose !
Here in europe badminton is not well known and that story will put a very very bad image of our sport.
