Good start for team HK.
Through to last 8 of the mixed doubles! Germany, **** off!
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!
