Yeah they showed this on Aussie TV too. Had a big fuss over it. Anyone know why they were throwing the match?

Also saw the controversy about the female Chinese swimmer who ended up swimming a quicker final 50m than the American Ryan Lochte in a certain event. Her overall time was only .03 off the guys as well... Fishy to say the least.

The 1st group`s winner would have had to face a dominate Chinese team in the next round who somehow lost their first game despite being the top ranked pair. Both teams could afford to lose once and still move on and if they lost they would face an easier team.

Why would it not be a sport? It's more sport-like than tons of other events

Cheers for that.

And not to be a dick, but it grinds my gears when people get dominant and dominate wrong.

at least in table tennis the Chinese are well known for throwing matchs to ensure better matchpus down the line for Chinese players in tourneys.

its pretty f-ing pathetic if you ask me.
