Rio 2016: Team Korea fails to make semis in men’s badminton


And that was only one of the fields, where
the country saw disappointing losses. In the men’s doubles badminton, the Top ranked
team of Lee Yong-dae and Yoo Yeon-seong ..suffered an unexpected defeat in the quarterfinals. The Malaysian duo upset the Koreans two-sets-to-one,…
and the loss was especially surprising considering the Malaysians are ranked 12th. The other Korean pair,… Kim Sa-rang and
Kim Gi-jung ,… ranked third in the world, also crashed out in the round-of-16 with a
loss to China. In the third and final set, the Korean team
had a match point — leading 20-18,.. but the Chinese athletes dragged themselves back
into the contest,… eventually winning the set 24-22,… sending them through to the
semis.
