What is the final list of qualifiers in badminton.

Do we have the group stages before the knock-outs again..

Qualified athletes list: http://totallympics.com/index.php?/topic/213-badminton-qualification-for-summer-olympic-games-2016/&page=1

 

And yes, we still use the round-robin group stage before the knock out round

Chinese team has confirmed their badminton squad:

 

MS: Chen Long, Lin Dan

WS: Li Xuerui, Wang Yihan

MD: Fu Haifeng/Zhang Nan, Chai Biao/Hong Wei

WD: Luo Ying/Luo Yu, Yu Yang/Tang Yuanting

XD: Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei, Xu Chen/Ma Jin

 

With the Luo twins selected, it means Tian Qing must stay at home. Plus, one WS quota is abolished (because Zhao Yunlei only play in XD) which means :LTU Akvile Stapusaityte won't be competing at the Olympics :cry:

Wow, they are allowed to make changes and thus kick out Lithuanian player less than 20 days before Rio?

China had 3 pairs in top 8 in WD. BWF assumed that China would chose top 2 pairs resulting in Zhao Yunlei being selected in two events, which would create an additional quota in WS, which was allocated to Lithuania. This quota was always conditional as can be seen by the official BWF document quoted below:

 

Quote

If an athlete qualifies (and is selected) in more than one (1) event, then the unused athlete quota place will be allocated to the next best ranked athlete of the same gender in the singles event on the World Ranking Lists of 5 May 2016. The offer of this Quota Place will however be conditional on the athlete who is qualified in more than one (1) events being confirmed and entered by his/her NOC in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

 

China had to confirm that it will use two quotas in WD by May 31 and announce its team by 18 July. China never said that it will select Zhao/Tian. China didn't make any change. Though sad for Lithuanian player, she must have been prepared for this. And blaming China (or BWF) for this is simply wrong.

Wow. Unexpected and cruel. BWF should not inform federations that they have a quota if it is only conditional and can be taken away 20 days before. Poor Akvilė.
