(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - August 1, 2012: Match-fixing allegations have rocked the London Olympics. Eight badminton players who were accused of throwing away their games to secure easier draws in the next stage, have been disqualified from the Games. They are out of the Olympics.
But India's appeal that a Japanese duo in their Group B too lost on purpose has been rejected. Ashwini Ponappa and Jwala Gutta had won their match yesterday but failed to qualify for the next round.
