    Right choice. However if the officials had done their job properly and DQ'd the first two pairs like they threatened then it would have saved the second two pairs.

    i agree its a massive step though and to do it without consulting the higher 'powers' and national representatives could be seen the officials ridiculed.

    It is a big step in badminton. Yup, action should have been taken against the first two pairs before letting this plague the Indonesian pair and Kim/Ha though. LYB's reign might not last long now

    Korea is the biggest casualty here, but China has just lost a definite gold

    I just heard on HK TV news that the 4 pairs have been disqualified. It's also written on the TV screen as they report on other news.

    There is no mention of it being provisional!!!

    That would have been a better ending but I guess the tournament empire didnt want to be blame

    Really? I totally agree to disqualify these four pairs. They don't even respect badminton as a sport.

    Is this really true?

    This is really crossing the line... I mean, ok sure the pairs did the wrong thing, but taking them out of the competition completely???

    There was no rule or regulation nor a warning to the players or coaches... this is imo is uncalled for and I feel for the players who trained so hard just for this event...

    If they make a group system like this, how can they not expect fixed matches? Is BWF just asking for more publicity? How about reverting back to the elimination system? The coaches and players were simply planning according to the system, had it been an elimination format, you can expect everyone to do their best...

    Disqualifying them will only worsen the problem... now LYB and China badminton are going to take it to BWF. I hope they discuss this further...

    It's funny they decide to take action now during the Olympics when China's been doing it for the past 10 years.............

    hmm, Cable TV news only says they have been accused... didn't say they have been disqualified.

    It was announced to those in the stadium running the tournament about an hour or so ago and the info came from the meeting involving the BWF, team principals and the IOC. I said provisional due to the nature of sport and appeals. However the Chinese Olympic body seem to be distancing themselves from Chinese badminton decisions currently, team Korea blame team china and the other nations all complained against China, Korea and Indonesia.
