Overview

Badminton was first contested at the 1992 Olympic Games for both men and women in singles and doubles. The mixed doubles was added in 1996. For 2016 the programme was the same as London 2012.

Between 38 and 50 players were permitted in the singles competitions and 16 pairs in each of the doubles events. A singles player could also enter the doubles, and if a player qualified for two events, the extra place was allocated to the next eligible singles player of the same gender. A maximum of 172 athletes could compete, with NOCs each allowed up to two entries in the singles and two pairs in each doubles event. Entries in each event included the highest-ranked player or pair from each of the African, Asian, European, Oceania and Pan American badminton confederations.

The Competitions were played in two stages: the group stage and the knockout stage. For the singles competitions, players went into 13 groups of three or four players and for doubles, there were four groups with four pairs in each. All players/pairs played every other player/pair in their group in a round-robin. Triggered by the match-fixing scandal in the women'€™s doubles in London, a random draw to determine places in the quarter-finals was made for the doubles events. In the singles competitions, the top player from each group progressed to the round of 16, with the three top ranked players going straight through to the last eight. In doubles competitions, the two top pairs from each group advanced to the quarter-finals. This stage consisted of head-to-head matches from which the winner advanced to the next round.

In the singles events, the maximum number of players per nation was two. An instant review system, used to review line calls, was introduced as per the Laws of Badminton. A player had the option to call for two challenges during a game. If the challenge was successful, the player kept his/her challenge. Each match was the best of three sets, with each set won by the player/pair to first reach 21 points with a minimum of a two point margin.

China'€™s dominance in London, when they won all events, as well as two silver and a bronze medal, was broken in Rio as only the men'€™s singles and doubles went to China. The women'€™s singles was won by Spain'€™s [Carolina Mari­n], and women'€™s doubles by the Japan duo [Misaki Matsutomo] and [Ayaka Takahashi], the number one seeds. The mixed doubles was dominated by the third-seeded Indonesian pair [Tontowi Ahmad] and [Lilyana Natsir].

The badminton tournaments at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro took place from 11 to 20 August at the fourth pavilion of Riocentro. A total of 172 athletes competed in five events: men's singles, men's doubles, women's singles, women's doubles, and mixed doubles.

Similar to 2012 format, a combination of group play and knockout stages had been maintained at these Games. In all the doubles tournaments, the Badminton World Federation instituted several changes to the competition rules after the match fixing scandal from the previous Olympics, as all pairs finishing second in their groups would be placed into another draw to determine who they face in the next round, while the top pair in each group must have a fixed position matched to its designated seed in the knockout phase.

The Games made use of about 8,400 shuttlecocks.

Qualification

The Olympic qualification period took place between May 4, 2015 and May 1, 2016, and the Badminton World Federation rankings list, scheduled to publish on May 5, 2016, was used to allocate spots. Unlike the previous Games, nations could only enter a maximum of two players each in the men's and women's singles, if both were ranked in the world's top 16; otherwise, one quota place until the roster of thirty-eight players had been completed. Similar regulations in the singles tournaments also applied to the players competing in the doubles, as the NOCs could only enter a maximum of two pairs if both were ranked in the top eight, while the remaining NOCs were entitled to one until the quota of 16 highest-ranked pairs was filled.

For each player who had qualified in more than one discipline, an additional quota place in each of the singles tournaments would have become free. If no player from one continent had qualify, the best ranked player from a respective continent would have got a quota place.

Summary

In the doubles competitions, the top two pairs from each group advanced to the quarter-finals. This stage consisted of head-to-head matches from which the winner advanced to the next round. Triggered by the match-fixing scandal in the women'€™s doubles in London 2012 a random draw to determine places in the quarter-finals was made for all the doubles events.

Despite only being the third seeds, the Indonesian duo [Tontowi Ahmad] and [Lilyana Natsir] dominated the tournament winning all their matches clearly in two sets. Malaysian'€™s [Chan Peng Soon] and [Goh Liu Ying] went on to win the third badminton silver medal for their country after losing 14-21, 12-21 to the Indonesian couple in the final. The match for the bronze medal was an all-Chinese affair with [Zhang Nan] and [Zaho Yunlei] beating their compatriots [Xu Chen] and [Ma Jin] in straight sets.
