Eight badminton players have been disqualified from the women's doubles competition after being accused of "not using one's best efforts to win".
Two pairs from South Korea and one each from China and Indonesia made a series of basic errors in Tuesday's matches.
All four pairs were accused of wanting to lose, in an attempt to manipulate the draw for the knockout stage.

Indonesia and South Korea have appealed and a decision is expected before Wednesday's quarter-finals
"This is the Olympic Games. This is something that is not acceptable. The crowd paid good money to watch two matches."
China's Olympic sports delegation has begun an investigation into the matches, state media reported. The country's Olympic Committee opposed any behaviour which violated "sporting spirit and morality", a spokesman said.
None of the players was made available for interviews. But after the match one of them, Yu Yang of China, said they were only trying to save energy for the knockout rounds, starting Wednesday.
As we all know, there was no group stage in the former Olympic badminton match. But the group stage was added up in London Olympic badminton match. This means that some players such as the ones from China have to face their teammates in the knockout in the next days. No one want to fight with his or her Compatriots.
it's the imperfect rules which the BWF specified that led to their negative competition. Ironically, It's just the BMF that the rule-making bodies that made their expulsion from the Olympic Games .Everyone blamed their Immoral behavior while no one blamed the BWF. Indeed,the sport need the rules and rationality. But that does not mean to sacrifice the players to achieve the rule, even in the case that the players did not violate the rules of disqualification. The London Olympic Committee and BWF is responsible to this matter.


在世界羽联召开发布会,正式确认将以剥夺参赛资格,作为8名女双选手消极比赛的惩戒后,处罚对象中的中国选手于洋、王晓理,再也压抑不住心中的不满与愤怒。毕竟,在她们看来,以被剥夺比赛资格,作为自身奋斗四年的句点,实在是太过荒唐可笑,尤其,导致她们消极比赛的正是世界羽联制定的不完善规则,而又是这个指定不完善规则的机构,将他们驱逐出了奥运会。的确,体育需要讲规则,讲理性,但不意味着要牺牲选手来成就规则,甚至在没有违反规则情况下取消资格。
"因为取胜前两场之后,我们已经获得了出线资格,在最后一场赛前热身时,王晓理又别了下膝盖,所以才选择不全力以赴,毕竟后面的比赛更重要,也更艰难。尤其又看到对手甚至根本没有热身,这也影响了我们的情绪。"在7月31日比赛的赛后,于洋、王晓理曾经如是解释过她们不"全力以赴"的原因,并指出"如果赛制是淘汰赛,大家肯定每场都要全力去拼",只不过,因为这一次世界羽联别出心裁地选择了小组赛+淘汰赛的赛制,免不得让有选择机会的各国选手,被动做出了选择。
但最终,在舆论的压力下,世界羽联也选择了剥夺4对,共计8名女双选手继续参加奥运会资格的严惩,给本届奥运会迄今为止最受关注的羽毛球事件画上句点。虽然,在于洋、王晓理等选手看来,这样的做法,只是世界羽联"用我们的梦想,给他们自己的不完善赛制买单。
