China, Indonesia and S. Korea badminton players disqualified from games.
The eight players from four teams in the women's doubles competition have been thrown out following an inquiry by the Badminton World Federation in London on Wednesday morning.
The expelled players include Chinese World Champions Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang, who were accused by other players of attempting to throw their 'dead rubber' in order to avoid playing China's No 2 ranked pair before the gold-medal match.
The Chinese actions appear to have triggered a response from pairs from South Korea and Indonesia, who in turn tried to lose to subvert the Chinese plan.
