Olympic Badminton II

There are always problems with teams throwing games when you go from multi-game rounds to single-elimination tournaments.  The problem for the Olympics is that single-elimination tournaments are a horrible way of determining the second and third-best teams.  Because of the silver and bronze medals this matters a lot more here than most playoffs.
