The World Badminton Federation has charged eight female badminton doubles players with misconduct for their actions during matches at the London Olympics. The WBF said in a statement, "The pairs have been charged with not using one's best efforts to win a match and conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport." The athletes charged in this case were trying to lose their preliminary matches intentionally to receive a more favorable place in the tournament.
