Glasgow: Australia are unlikely to reach the badminton mixed teams quarter-finals after a tight loss to Canada on Friday.

The tight 2-3 result probably means Australia will not progress from the round-robin group matches into the quarter-finals.Prince Charles poses with members of the Australia badminton team in the lead up to the Games.

With the tie locked at two all late on Friday night, Australia’s top double combination of He Tian Tang and Renuga Venuga lost to Michelle Li and Rachel Honderich 26-24 21-12.

At yesterday’s opening game, Australia have fallen one result short of a clean sweep of Wales by winning the mixed teams tie 4-1.

Canada will now play Wales in the final group D tie on Saturday before the quarter-finalists are decided.

The six group winners and the next two best teams go through to the quarters.
