    I don't see CYF feeling any sort of pressure or choke etc.

    She is just too strong!

    Unfortunately it's VA he is playing in the semis, hence he would be very happy if he could win the bronze.

    If it were either AG or CL he is meeting in the semis, a gold would be a probability because it may not be VA he will be playing in the final.

    They give so many medals in swimming and only 5 for badminton. A bit unfair.

    We need a team event in badminton for Olympics :D

    I don't care what happens - but I hope Kevin Cordòn gives VA a hard time and we get an enjoyable match.

    I'm actually rooting for Kevin Cordòn now

    You have to pick one after KM's elimination.

    From KM to KC! :p I just like the motivation and determination he has shown.

    Also gives me hope that you don't need to be super young to win at highest level. Also applies for CL this one.

    His 2021 results is not impressive, as he played mainly in level 3 games and only reaches at most, semi finals.

    In 2019 his games is also revolved around level 3 games, though he can consistently get into finals

    Kevin codom draw is, as you said, quite easy. His opponent is rather low ranking, the highest ranking being agnus, who i think is considerably much easier than other brackets. None the lesswe need to note that he beat his opponent with ease, down agnus and heo in straight sets, often with good margins.

    Definitely support a team event. Swimmers can do individual and team. Same as triathlon individual and team.

    smaller scale team event should be manageable. 2 singles and 1 doubles for men and women's team, like a mini Thomas/Uber cup.

    Even in dressage and show jumping you get individual and team.

    Maybe it is because I am in Mauritius, but Badminton is way more popular than this.

    Good judgements from KC. Just reduce the mistakes now.
