Badminton Players to Answer Charges

Badminton World Federation (BWF) has opened two disciplinary cases against four women’s pairs who contested Women’s Doubles matches in the London 2012 Olympics last evening (Tuesday 31 July) at Wembley Arena.

The pairs have been charged under BWF’s Players’ Code of Conduct – Sections 4.5 and 4.16 respectively – with “not using one’s best efforts to win a match” and “conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport”.

The pairs are as follows: Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang (China); Greysia Polii and Meiliana Jauhari (Indonesia); Jung Kyung Eun and Kim Ha Na (Korea); and Ha Jung Eun and Kim Min Jung (Korea).

BWF’s Disciplinary Committee will hold a formal hearing this morning after which a decision will made.
