    I see still there is no thread for Day 6. :D Here we are then.

    I'll copy and paste what I got from last thread:

    IOC control their show so strictly that we are finding info quite different from how we usually obtain our Badminton results, live scores, live streaming, etc., etc., ...

    Anyway, here are some links:

    For Schedule of Matches;
    http://www.london2012.com/badminton/...lts/index.html
    and/or
    http://tournamentsoftware.com/sport/...17A&d=20120729

    For Time in London;
    http://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_GB.aspx

    For our BC PAW Game;
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...cs-LONDON-2012

    For Live Streaming;
    Perhaps BCers from different countries can post the links that are working for their regions. Different countries sometimes cannot use the same links. Here is what IOC informed us (how to watch live);
    http://www.olympic.org/content/broadcaster-home/
    and/or
    http://www.youtube.com/user/olympic
    and/or (from info from our BCers)
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...am-London-2012

    ENJOY THE GAME!

    Indonesia still has one MD pair in QF and one XD pair in SF. This is lower than previous edition where we had one WS (MKY) in SF, one MD (MK/HS) in QF, two XD (NW/LN and FL/VM) in SF. And on paper we should see MD pair packing today since they will meet our mighty LYD/CJS. Ouch.

    But yeah, this is Olympics, everything can happen. Lets pray for our players! :D and hope they will give their best today!

    In MD match, their head to head is 2-0 in favor of the Koreans, but they actually also meet each other with different partner sometimes, like when Ahsan paired with Hendra Setiawan or when LYD paired with Shin Baek Choel. Bona/Ahsan surprisingly through to the next round with just one win over another Korean pair, I hope LYD/CJS don't hold grudge for their compatriot, LOL.

    Almost the same case with Natsir, she meet Ma Jin so many times before, I believe they know each other games very well now, lol. With Tontowi (and Ma Jin with Xu Chen), they already meet 5 times with the Indonesians won their first and last encounter. In mixed doubles, they actually on par with others, yesterday match against GER didn't bring the best from Tontowi/Natsir but I hope they will find their good form soon because MJ/XC will never be an easy meat. GO INDONESIA! :D

    Maybe NBCOlympics.com might work for you, it has all the scores filled out and brackets updated the last time I checked it.

    For schedule, matches and scores, also LIVE score, the official site has it all:
    http://www.london2012.com/badminton/schedule-and-results/day=2-august/all-day.html

    yet only TS has H2H score!

    i go to nbcolympics only if i wanna see JPN as the #3 or perhaps later, USA as #1 in total medal counts whereas colors become less significant ;)

    lol , poor Peter Gade. He keep meeting the eventual gold medal winner of olympic each time he play olympic.

    This time he meet Chen Long who is a gold medal favourite.

    His luck of the draw is not good.

    I am disappointed with the Danes. After the surprise win over TQ/ZYL, they then lost to the Japanese FUJII M/KAKIWA R in straight set? Japanese WD pair usually only play defense, how can they lose?

    it's a usual trend in badminton. When one player has defeated a very strong opponent in this round, this player will lose in the next round. I witness many of these before. :D
