Congratulation! but I saw the report detail, the Chinese XingWang hurt seriously on her ankle probably she will never return Badminton games. I saw the referee refuse her three requests about cleaning up competition range covering with sweat. I cannot image how bad the referee in 2012 Olympics games.The inhuman referee makes the hurt for Xing Wang.

we would be more proud if she rejected that medal as she did not win the game.Its better to lose rather than getting a medal by donation. Next time when Saina faces any china player she will not win over them, due to this weak attitude....
