    Sheesh, they should have taken me with them.

    Mind you, did they go to Stratford for the Olympic village? It's probably 1.5 hours from there to the tournament venue in wembley.

    the Chinese team are smarter and opted for a closer hotel. they must've planned this quite early as the availability will be very scarce.

    CBA really have the bucks to throw in and well-prepared... any idea how far is their hotel from the Wembley Stadium? << 0.5hr?

    hmm, aside from distance, the hotel facilities should be more comfortable than the Olympic Village's ones (just take the modest kid-look bed as a reference)

    i wonder if only their badminton team do this way, there should be some other followers.

    Lol, the one responsible for all the pinkness must be a female, and designed this Olympics for females.
    What has happened to the equality of the sexes?

    The colour contrast, pink backdrop and green courts, cannot be more jarring, almost an eyesore. Individually, the colours are OK but together they are ill-matched. Don't the organizers have a sense of colour? Pastel or light pink,not so bright, would be more suitable, I think.
