    Default The biggest news to date is definitely..

    ..as mentioned on the Olympic headline news, the rescheduling of all the matches was the biggest news to date..

    - Almost zero badminton players went to the Opening Ceremony...considering also the travel & traffic time to/from Stratford area..Although today, i was told by one of the asst. players organizers that abt 1+ bus took some people to the event.

    Here are rest of the players photos taken at the WPH :
    - Saw WYH running wildly into the hotel and then out the door as if she was chased by a ghost (she ran to join the rest of her teammates).
    - Yes, saw LD sneaked out behind Ma Jin..actually most of the entire team took a late afternoon stroll to the arena area..
    - Saw Zhao Yunlei..
    - Saw Boonsak P. & the other THA players
    - Security personnel as vigilant and friendly as always..
    - KOR players & staff/coaches incl. Kim Min Jung..
    - CAN players mingling about in the lobby area..

    So WSJ predicting Singapore will get 2 medals, INA, MAS, THA 1 medal. PHI no medal. And no gold at all for South East Asia
    Boxing is boxing, Tae Kwon Do is a lot of kicking and Judo is a lot of throwing, grappling and arm/leg bars. Why not include Muay Thai in the Games? It sure does requires a lot of conditioning if not better conditioning than the aforementioned MA disciplines which, could mean gold medals for South East Asians!

    Yes, very much in the Olympic spirit to plant your elbow on the crown of someone's head (). Aside from the gazillion federations ...
    Make it K1 rules and at least we also have some medals guaranteed but with one entry per weight category medals surely guaranteed under Muay Thai rules as well ...

    Let's not get sidetracked from the badminton. Somebody might think badminton is not very popular if reading last few posts.

    Late schedule changes infuriate badminton players

    LONDON (Reuters) - Sweeping late changes to the schedule of the Olympic badminton tournament, prompted by an "oversight", infuriated players on Friday.

    "It's bad. It's not right," said Polish men's doubles player Michal Logosz after organizers announced that some 60 percent of the matches, mostly in the doubles draws, would be affected by the changes to the tournament which starts on Saturday.
    "It's the most important competition. It's crazy that they can't do the draw how they are supposed to," said German doubles player Johannes Schoettler.
    The Badminton World Federation (BWF) apologized to the players after it emerged that the original schedule published on Wednesday had not followed the competition regulations as agreed with the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
    "There was an oversight and it's human error that this had not been carefully checked by our own team and myself at the outset," tournament referee Torsten Berg said.
    "But of course if somebody had expected to have a late morning on Saturday and they now have to play early they will be disappointed," he added. "We understand that and we are sorry about this happening but see no choice other than to apply the BWF regulations and our agreement with the IOC."
    The tournament at Wembley Arena begins with pools of players competing in round-robin matches.
    Schoettler said he and partner Ingo Kindervater had already prepared for an early game against Australia and now faced Taiwan in an evening match instead.
    "I started getting up early the last few days to get ready. We should have played Australia, the weakest in our group," he said after a training session.
    "My brother SMS-ed me this morning to say we now play Chinese Taipei, our most important match, and now on Saturday evening.
    "It's stressful. We have moved to Wembley Plaza Hotel because we play tomorrow. "We could have stayed in the Olympic Village one more night and everything (would have) been easier."
    Logosz said the scheduling changes had played havoc with the plans of family and friends.
    "This is really bad," said Logosz, who will partner Adam Cwalina against South Korea's Ko Sung-hyun and Yoo Yeon-seong on Saturday.
    "It's never happened before and it happens in the Olympics -- it's not right. For me it's not really bad but for mixed doubles, two matches in one day, this is a disaster. Maybe they will do something about that.
    "We have tickets for families and friends and we found out only 24 hours before the matches."
