« Olympic Badminton Controversy Explained | Main | Fun for the Whole Family »



Athletes are trying to advance to the highest position possible, win the most important match, not every match. Should Michael Phelps be disqualified because his did not try his best to win first place in qualification competition? In addition, the rules to allow two high-ranking teams, especially from the same country, to meet in early round of games is extremely unusual, apparently with evil political agenda aimed to diminish the chance of China teams to dominate the finals.

I don't disagree with this at all.

What I do disagree with is the structure of the tournament. It made it beneficial for pairs to behave in a way that could get them disqualified. That's unethical, and it's the designers of the tournament who should be disqualified.
