Some good news.

Carsten Mogensen is already back in the game working towards Rio after his bursted aneurism.

And Cai Yun/MathiasBoe combination is not allowed by Chinese Badminton Association..

 

Anyway, our Indonesian hope was on Praveen and Debby but they're facing Zhang/Zhao :mumble:

By the way, I'm not familiar with the qualification system. How many men and women qualify to RIO in the singles event?

16 pairs in doubles, 36 athletes in singles. 

 

No Lithuanians are close to qualify for Rio if you wonder...

Yes, that was exactly what I was wondering about :d Stapušaitytė is doing quite well lately, so I thought that maybe she was getting closer. But as I presume, there used to be more athletes in Badminton in 2012/2008 Olympics? Because I remember her and Kęstutis were both qualified once.

No, just right now the field is more diverse with more countries earning quotas, + Kęstutis is 60 positions lower than he used to be before all the injuries (despite the fact that he still around top100). Plus Akvilė did not qualified for 2012 London as well, she just was invited later on through re-distributed quotas. Both Lithuanians will be in reserve list - so very small chance unless meteor hits a major tournament :d

Ivanov and Sozonov won All-England in men's doubles. A crazy result

At present you are R6 in MS and R7 in WS. Also, meteor hitting a major tournament not help as top nations have multiple entries ahead of reserves.

Yeah.. Really unexpected results, just like Praveen Jordan/Debby Susanto.

 

After Ivanov/Sozonov win against Lee/Yoo, I already have the feeling that the Russians will win :)
