Apparently, china didn't file their appeal while Korea actually did but was not entertained by BWF i think.. For team Ina, i read from reports that their appeal was rejected as well, but i read from somewhere in forum they actually didn't file their appeal as well..
Not surprised that china actually didn't file their appeal.. who is with me?
They still have another wd pair which currently is a very strong contention for the gold medal
At this point I have to ask you if you've even actually seen the JP / TPE match? Because if you haven't you are just making stuff up at this point.
I haven't seen that match but I don't believe for a second that the BWF is afraid of Japan. In fact given what's been going on and the attention this is being given in the mainstream media I find it hard to believe that if a review of the match showed any possible manipulation by Japan the BWF wouldn't feel extreme pressure to act. Certainly more pressure than any pressure to appease Japan.
I have seen Japs vs Taiwan match... their acting level is no where near Yuyang & frens...
I am a proponent for badminton (as well as indoor volleyball, among other sports) to be played during the winter olympics rather than summer. It seems to me that it would better match the seasonal peaking of the players' schedules, and it is a sport that can only be played indoors anyway (unless they want to introduce "beach badminton").
In addition, it would add interest in the winter games among the countries who currently have little to no interest.
I notice that British and American news broadcasts have only still photos of these matches, no video. I guess the IOC don't want it broadcast because of the embarrassment. But I think people would understand the decision better if they could see what actually happened.
Thanks. But I think the message "Aus rechtlichen Gründen ist der Zugriff auf das gewünschte Medium von einem Standort außerhalb Deutschlands leider nicht möglich" means that people outside Germany can't view the videos on that site.
heard that she got no backing from CBA, she is sading thus quiting baddie maybe into acting
i'm agree with you. I think that she understood that she have been doing the perfect soldier for the dictatorial CBA and that she had been left alone when this hapenned..... More or less like Zhou Mi in 2004
"... Li Yongbo, chief coach of the Chinese badminton team, said the poor behaviour of his players reflected the shortcomings of the new regulations in the sport. "I feel that no matter whether it is the rules or something else, that's no excuse," said Li.
"The key point is we did not behave professionally as athletes and did not treat each match seriously.
"We didn't strive with all our might in the Olympic way. From that point of view we really didn't grasp this point thoroughly ... as chief coach I really feel I must say sorry to fans and viewers nationwide," Li told Xinhua...."
