Yet another Olympic controversy has clouded the English capital after four pairs of players - two from South Korea and one each from China and Indonesia - were evicted from the games for, and I quote, "not using one's best efforts to win."
I know that it sounds idiotic, but it's true, all of the pairs were diabolical.
Each of the players were accused of wanting to lose their encounter in an attempt to manipulate the draw for the knockout stage so that they could have an easier match. Which isn't really what the Olympics is all about.
The longest rally in the match lasted for four shots and each of the eight made a host of basic errors that saw them serve the shuttlecock, *snigger*, into the net repeatedly and miss it on several occasions too.
It's not like they weren't warned too, the match referee Thorsten Berg came on to the court to threaten the players with disqualification if they didn't give it their all. But unfortunately they didn't heed his advice.
A sold out attendance at Wembley voiced their discontent by jeering, booing and chanting at the players, as they'd paid an obscene amount of money to be in the crowd.
Here are three other hilarious disqualifications from the Olympics that have left a sour taste in the mouth of the organisers, but made most of the general public lol.
Evander Holyfield, 1984 - Poor old Evander, years before geting bitten close to deaf by Mike Tyson, the big man was still looking to make a name for himself. But in L.A he found himself disqualified for repeatedly punching on the break in a fight with Kevin Barry, even though he was clearly in control of the bout.
Soviet Pentathalon Team, 1976 - During the height of the Cold War being labelled a Commie was the worst accusation anyone could throw at you. Yet it always seemed a tad unjust until the Montreal games when it was discovered that Boris Onischenko had hidden a button inside his epee which activated the electronic scoring machine when pressed. To me, that's ingenius and he should have rewarded for his efforts.
Arash Miresmaili, 2004 - These games have seen some of the fittest athletes in the world compete but sometimes it isn't always the case. In Athens in 2004 an Iranian judoka was disqualified for being overweight after going on a politically motivated eating binge. Now that's a protest that I can get behind!
