Athens, Greece (Sports Network) - The American badminton doubles team of Howard Bach and Kevin Han were eliminated from the Olympics after losing a
second round match to Jens Eriksen and Martin Lundgaard of Denmark, 15-6, 15-4 at the Goudi Olympic Hall Monday night.
There was also a shock in mixed doubles as world champions Kim Dong Moon and Ra Kyung Min of Korea lost to the Denmark duo of Jonas Rasmussen and
Rikke Olsen. It was the first lost for Kim/Ra in over a year following a final of 17-14, 15-8.
"This was completely unpredictable! They had never thought they would come to this. The Olympics have already been a success for us, since we beat
them," Olsen said.
