Badminton Day 8

Carolina Marin

Women’s doubles bronze medal match

Jung/Shin (Korea) vs Tang/Yu (China)

  • After being beaten by Japan’s Matsutomo and Takahashi in the semifinals, Jung/Shin came out firing in the bronze medal match, winning the first game 21-8 and the second game 21-17, clinching third place and the bronze medal. The Korean duo looked hungrier than the Chinese tandem throughout the match and seemed more eager to walk away with hardware than their foes. Perhaps mentally-taxed from their long match with Denmark’s Pedersen and Rytter Juhl, Tang/Yu simply didn’t have it today and finish in fourth place.
