I just read the news that Yu Yang quits the love of her life - Badminton. As a huge badminton fan, this is a devastating news for me.  This type of scandal usually has nothing to do with players, they just follow the order from folks in the management. Top ranked badminton player like Yu Yang always play her heart out when she is on the court, so that she can make her country proud of her. Match fixing is not something new to the Chinese team, they were already able to manipulate the world men's singles badminton rankings with so many walk-overs so that they can have the maximum three shuttlers in the men’s singles at the Olympics.

 

Frankly, if this is not because of those  fans who attended the matches Tuesday night at Wembley Arena chanted, "Off! Off! Off!"  to incredulous television broadcasters and viewers watching around the world, you will not see this type of penalties. I hate to repeat things in my article, again, the walk-overs in Chinese men's singles really ticked me off, these walk-overs are obvious examples of impompetancy of Badminton World Federation (BWF), who introduced the badminton rules that full with loopholes (and don't bother to fix them), which the Chinese is taking advantage of.

 

At last, I think Li Yongbo (head coach of Chinese National Badminton Team) and those dumpasses in the BWF management should be fired. Li Yongbo migh not necessary be the one who alway pulls the trigger, but he is definitely the mastermind of all these manipulations and match fixings. As far as those dumpasses in BWF, not only they failed to response prompty when people alerted them about the walk-overs about the Chinese men's singles manupulation of the badminton ranking (untill audiences are chanting  "Off! Off! Off!" in Wembley Arena at the London Olympic), they also failed the badminton fans around the world  that they are not able to make badminton a prominent racket sports around the world. In so many countries, people still treat badminton a sports you play at your backyard when they are gathering or BBQing. We should not let these group of people to continue to run an organization that is so important to the sport of badminton and to continue to ruin our favorite sport, badminton.

Scandal: Badminton star quits (pic)

Beijing - A top Chinese badminton star quit the sport on Thursday as an Olympic match-throwing scandal met with dismay and criticism in China, Indonesia and South Korea, from where eight female players were disqualified.


The Badminton World Federation's move to eject a Chinese, an Indonesian and two South Korean duos for failing to play their best, marked the first major scandal of the Games and prompted China's Yu Yang to retire from the sport.


Sports fans and the media in all three countries expressed disappointment, with some saying it was humiliating to have their national players implicated in the scandal, while others were sympathetic to the athletes.


"Match fixing tramples on sports ethics and shouldn't be tolerated," an opinion piece in China's state-run Global Times said on Thursday.

Tournament referee Torsten Berg speaks to Yu Yang and Wang Xiaoli of China and Kim Ha-na and Jung Kyung-eun of South Korean during their women's doubles group play stage Group A badminton match during the London 2012 Olympic Games at the Wembley Arena July 31, 2012.
The paper was among several news outlets and many ordinary citizens from the Asian countries to suggest that the new round-robin format motivated players to lose, though most agreed that nothing excused match-throwing.
