Of course it's about doing your best. It's also about sportsmanship and character.

If you want to be hailed as the best, you should be willing to go up against and beat the best.

Where's the glory in weaseling your way to a gold medal?

As stated in the Badminton Federation's Rulebook and recognized by IOC:

Quote:
You must use your best effort to win a match

You must conduct yourself in a manner that is not detrimental or abusive to the sport

LOL, what did the Iranian guy do?

I like how London made fun of Vancouver, and now they are fucking up worst in all possible ways.

I don't know much about boxing...did the Iranian dude not deserve the warnings? I don't know what constitutes pushing or holding or whatever the hell the warning was.

Apparently in another match between Japan and Azerbaijan, they overturned a ruling where the Japanese boxer lost despite the Azerbaijani boxer falling down 6 times.

As interesting as controversies are, I rather an athlete not get screwed over. Can't imagine going out of the Olympics like that.

read about the iranian player when i wondered "say is iran in the olympics?"

and this boxing blog/site is up in arms about the officiating too but they don't really explain it :/

Olympics 2012 Boxing Results - Heavyweights: Iranian Fighter Disqualified in Second Afternoon Disgrace - Bad Left Hook

Quote:
Jose Larduet (Cuba) vs Ali Mazaheri (Iran) via DQ-2: And right back to the shoddy officiating. This was almost as ridiculous as the Azerbaijan-Japan disgrace in the bantamweight session. Larduet was docked in round one, then in round two, Mazaheri couldn't do anything without being warned, and on the third warning, he was disqualified. It was absolutely absurd, and these two shoddy, shady happenings this afternoon are exactly why Olympic boxing has a bad reputation. For four days, we got by without much happening. Now we've got a disaster this afternoon. I sort of warned about this the other day, but somehow it's still surprising that things like this just happen. To Mazaheri's credit -- and this will surely get him in trouble with AIBA -- he refused to stand by the referee for the official decision at first. After waiting a moment, he went over and shook the hands of the Cuban corner. Then he left to cheers, ignoring the referee and the official announcement. Good for him. Larduet, for his part, looked more confused than anything. He left the ring quietly and didn't appear any happier with what happened than anyone else.

I dont know much about the rules either but I read, as you can see in the first warning at 15 seconds, the Cuban boxer has his head low into the guys chest, if the Iranian doest put his hand over his head, thats like asking to be headbutt in the face.
The other calls look like bull shit too, even the two announcers call it out, one saying the games are going down in a spiral and the other calling it ridiculous.

How do you guys pronounce "Badminton" ?

I've been watching several videos and noticed many people pronounce it as "bad-mitten"
with the "-ten" being almost silent, so it sounds like "badmin" (2 syllables)


Am I the only one that has been pronouncing it as "bad-min-tin" all my life??

Thoughts on this?

After all the doping cries and underage controversies for Chinese olympic athletes, there seems to be more interest gathering around the world.

Basically the parents are enrolling the kids into these training "camps", and they get trained there...

I guess it's the darker side of the Olympics.

That was a ridiculous match.

Azerbaijan dude was trying to turn it into a wrestling match going for double legs and single legs while he was on the way down to the canvas. I guess MMA is already in the Olympics, ahahaha.
