FORMER Victoria University student Renuga Veeran and her playing partner Leanne Choo were re-admitted to the women's badminton doubles at the London Games after it was alleged that 'tanking' had taken place in the group stage.
The Badminton World Federation (BWF) announced that it had disqualified eight players - two each from China and Indonesia and four from South Korea - for what it believed constituted throwing their final pool game.
The bombshell gave a reprieve to Veeran and Choo, who went through to play Canada in the quarter-finals. The pair lost in three sets after losing the first then coming back to win the second.
The nations affected by the BWF decision have indicated they will launch an appeal.
