The indiv. was great. I'll post zillions of photos of the events when I come back, although I don't have all the games as it's my friend's cameras, not mine.
Anyway, off to a tie with ontario to get slaughtered by one of their girls (who placed first, second, and fourth in the individual event). We have a decent shot against them though, as our guys are strong and so it may come all down to mixed. Wish us luck!

This is how Team BC gets to the finalOriginally Posted by badelbow
“Nothing is Impossible”
BC Badminton started the morning session with an exciting cheer that drew the attention of all badminton competitors but most of all Team Ontario. Ontario was the intended recipient of the 'mock-u-tario cheer' as they were pitted against BC to determine which team would advance into the semi finals as the top seed of Group B in the team competition. Ontario moved into a strong lead after winning both the mixed doubles and women's singles matches leaving BC in the daunting position of having to win the final three matches in the best of five format. In the third match of the series Chris Lee (Vancouver) put BC on the scoreboard with a convincing win in men's singles 21-13 21-9.
The women's doubles team of Melody Liang (Burnaby) and Phyllis Chan (Vancouver) picked up where Lee left off attacking a gritty and determined Ontario duo that defeated them earlier in the Games during the individual round. However this time the result would be different as the BC pairing were a force to be reckoned with and pulled off an impressive 23-21 24-22 victory. This was the TSN turning point for Team BC as this win left the teams even with two matches a piece and now needing a fifth and deciding match. As the event was men's doubles - Team BC's flag bearers Tobias Ng (Vancouver) and Alvin Lau (Vancouver) were called to duty and they came through with flying colours winning 21-13 21-15.
The afternoon semi final brought with it a Wild West match up of BC and Alberta. BC got off to a slow start losing the mixed doubles event 14-21 21-18 21-19. However this start did nothing to deter the team...in fact it further charged them up to get the job done. BC went on to win the next three matches to advance into Friday's gold medal game against Quebec at 9:00 am at the Canada Games Centre. The team's focus is now on becoming the first BC team to win the Canada Games' team competition as nothing is impossible!!!
