Badminton is an Olympic sport? You're kidding, right?

Olympic badminton is not Grandpa's back yard game. More like Olympic table tennis. For us amateurs it would be a radio game. We could hear the shots going by but couldn't see them. Or maybe like trying to hit a Randy Johnson fastball.

They're losing badminton matches to get easier opponents later on? And ensure that the best people knock each other out of the running early on?


Sounds like good strategy. and they're obviously amateurs, for a good pro could fix the game without getting caught.
