Mike Beres played this morning (last night our time) and lost after two rounds. The scores were 21 to nine in both matches for Team Thailand. Mike and his partner are done competing already … I guess the plus side is that they still have nearly two weeks to watch other events, cheer on fellow Canadian athletes and do some sightseeing.
It’s too bad though – Mike is retiring from professional badminton after he comes home from the Games. It would have been nice for him to add an Olympic medal to his list of accomplishments, though even he knew that was a very lofty goal.
