That makes sense :d 

 

Do you think these draws will have some effect on the chances for certain athletes? I've been looking at the men's singles draw and it doesn't look like there's something that really changes the chances, maybe Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan meeting in the semi's, but I doubt it changes a lot.. 

 

It does make it damn tough for Jan Ø Jørgensen...

But for Denmark as a whole I doubt it matters a lot, since it looks like the only road to a medal that would be significantly easier for him would be by being in either Sugiarto's group or Axelsen's group (without Sugiarto/Axelsen being in it of course), though then he'd still face Chen Long in the semi's :p

Of course. But I would almost have prefered Denmark in the same half, now that it's Lin Dan in a propable quarter final. 

Meanwhile Axelsen's group is pretty tough.

The most gold medals that China can get is four in my opinion, I just don't see them winning in men's doubles.

And even 4 gold medals is only realistic if  everything goes completely perfect :p

I find it quite surprising that China has only one top seed (in mixed doubles)! Though I still think they will top badminton medal tally (for starters even I know that Lee Chong Wei just can't win gold :p).

Badminton has a lot of competition this time. No sure winners!!!

Especially in women's single, you have Li Xuerui/Marin/Nehwal/Intanon and a lot more who all have a good chance of winning.
