“Bad” badminton players booted from games…but don’t have a bird about it

The Guardian

Eight Olympic badminton players were accused of throwing matches and have been booted from the London games according to CNN.

I can’t believe these are the first group of Olympians who have tried to arrange for weaker opponents in future rounds by coming up short in the early stages, but I have not heard of disqualifications before. Seems like playing poorly intentionally would be hard to prove but the IOC has done it.
