Welcome to the Tokyo Olympics 2020!

~This thread is all about Badminton~

Badminton has been an official event at the Summer Olympics since 1992, having appeared twice before that as a demonstration sport. This year, a total of 172 athletes (86 men and 86 women) will compete in five medal events: men's singles, men's doubles, women's singles, women's doubles, and mixed doubles.

The schedule can be found here.

Use this thread to make your predictions about these sports, and discuss the events as they happen.

I was reading about that again a few days ago. :laugh: Apparently starting in 2016, they changed the way they decide the next round lineups, to prevent that from happening again. :p:

Oh I wasn't aware of that. Sounds like a good idea though!

I hope HK gets bronze.
As final is China vs China in mixed doubles, the Chinese anthem will be played at the medal ceremony. If HK wins there will be a perfect match of flags (two China, one HK) rising up to the Chinese anthem, and all athletes on the podium will sing the anthem together!
