The latest sporting scandal at the 2012 Summer Olympics involves the sport of badminton. Yes you heard that one correct. Four women's doubles teams have been disqualified for intentionally playing bad and losing matches in the knockout stage to gain more favorable quarterfinal matches. China's Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang, South Korea's Jung Kyung-eun and Kim Ha-na, South Korea's Ha jung-eun and Kim Min-jun and Indonesia's Greysia Polii and Meiliana Jauhari have all been disqualified for these actions and face disciplinary action along with their coaches.
