So there were 8 badmiten players who were thrown out for not trying to win. So, from stricktly ethical point of view, is this wrong?


Somewhere in the official Rules of Badminton it says players shall play with best effort.

So I dont think Olympic rules or ethics come into play, it is against the rules of the game.

I also think the Olympic committee will come up with a different type of play off in the future games.
