    Chinese team for sure are at the root of this long simmering "match fixing", it's a real shame other countries lowered themselves to their level

It's not much different than, say, Bradley Wiggins' teammates sacrificing themselves to help him win the Tour de France, or when Wiggins sacrificing himself by setting the pace in the last lap of the last stage and then letting Cavendish through to take the win. It's just team strategy, that's all. If the BWF don't want to see this they need to be smarter about how to structure the tournament. I feel sorry for paying customers though. What I don't understand is why the Koreans didn't just fake an injury, forfeit the match and screw the Chinese
    This point has been mentioned before by a few. I think this really is the crux of the issue. To be honest, I am in favour of the group system so that more matches can be played for a public viewing and for the athletes.

    However, we do see how the system can be manipulated. No, it's not cheating but highly tactical. i.e. a tactical loss.

    In another thread, we did see that people argued for all the best players to be in the olympics - this fiasco (and some previous olympic semifinals) show that having the best players around doesn't necessarily mean they will play to their best.

    Any group format will have this problem if two of the group can qualify.

    Having only one representative from each country would go long way to avoid this scenario.

    It is in the BWF regulations that the player must use their best effort.

    "4.5 Failure to use best efforts
    Not using one’s best efforts to win a match."

    Ok so in the INA vs. Korea match, KOR tried to throw the match in order not to face the #1 seed from CHN correct? But even if they ended up losing, they would have a KOR vs. KOR in 1st round of QFs. So the KOR don't have confidence in their pairs in that sense? Why would they rather have a KOR vs. KOR in 1st round rather than have 1 pair try to beat CHN.

    Agreed with everything apart from this line. BWF still reserve the right to punish anything that brings the sport into disrespute. Looks like this has.

    u r mistaking soccer match fixing from badminton lolz. its more like they plan on the possibility of china to face each other in with group matches cuz in single elimination, the only way china vs china is in the finals. good thing china doesnt whine to the level like those who whines about china cheating and other bs. lolz.

    Then more teams will throw their matches. If you're gonna make a draw and two teams already qualified, going into that final match, no one will try. Why waste energy when you already qualified for the next round? Winning or losing that last match won't matter because you won't know who you'll play against anyways since it's all by random.

    Love this quote from the news item above:

    "It's not like the Olympics spirit to play like this," said head coach Sung Han-kook. "How could the No. 1 pair in the world play like this? They start playing mistakes. Their attitude is absolute crap."
