For those too lazy to scroll back a few pages, here is the video: http://www.facebook.com/badminton.vancouver 660 shares from the original source already! The video belongs to Malisa Leung Really surprised no other videos have popped up seeing as how many people had their cameras out
Such a shame, Bodin/Jongjit was such an exciting pair that had the genuine potential to go to the top. Their split and now this is really sad.
Yeah, bad temper by both of them. Issara/Jongjit is the best THA MD but we will not see this pair again.
Well, disappointment for NED as their shuttlers failed in three finals yesterday. HKG XD Lee Chun Hei/Chau Hoi Wah won second title in two consecutive weeks. Two titles for Thai players, 1 title each for CHN and MAS in WD and MS category respectively.
Really i don't have words to explain.. It seems like boxing competition.. Really a bad news, which is going to be written in the history of badminton. I like bodin's style of play a lot. Now, he spoiled his career by himself. Very very disappointing.
Personal problems should not be dealt in the way they have did. They were like very close friends i guess. Now, it seems like they are two best enemies.
Within one or two days, we can see BWF's announcement about the incident and corresponding punishments..
I feel very very sorry for the both.. They spoiled themselves.. Nothing to say much..
At this time, you will no longer be able to view the video from Badminton Vancouver's facebook page. Its been taken down at the original source and Badminton Vancouver will not be re-posting it up onto its own page.

From Richmond Olympic Oval and before the spectators' eyes, a huge fist fight broke out at Canada Open 2013 Badminton Men's Double Final this afternoon, where both teams were representing Thailand.
METRO VANCOUVER -- Shuttlecocks were traded for straight jabs Sunday afternoon at Richmond’s Olympic oval as the doubles finals of a world-class badminton tournament turned into a fist fight between two former partners who had represented Thailand together in London last summer.

Fans at the Canada Open 2013 shouted in disbelief when Bodin Issara dropped his racket mid-match and chased Maneepong Jongjit into the neighbouring court, throwing haymakers onto his former playing partner until coaches and tournament staff pulled the two apart.
A stunned Jongjit rose from the floor shirtless while a fuming Issara was cornered by others.
A video of the spat was being shared rapidly on Facebook and YouTube by Sunday evening.
Both the players teams were immediately disqualified and Issara required two stitches to his ear, according to tournament medical staff. Badminton Canada has yet to decide if the two who fought will be further penalized.
At the start of the match, the two were warned by the ref for a verbal exchange.
As recently as this January, Issara and Jongjit were ranked one of the best duos in the sport before the former announced his surprise retirement to look after his ailing mother and because of an injury and personal reasons, according to the Bangkok Post. Issara soon started competing again with another partner and an online badminton magazine cited his dissatisfaction with Thailand’s training facilities as the real reason behind his temporary retirement.
Richmond RCMP were on the scene, but no charges have been recommended to Crown as of Sunday evening.
Because of this, Canada Open thread will beat US Open thread easily.
Bodin might have career in MMA or Muay Thai boxing after retiring from badminton. Maybe even more successful career and if he did well, he will be known as ex-badminton Olympian and so badminton will get even more famous( or infamous)
