A pair of Thai badminton players who had once partnered at the London Summer Olympics got into a brawl Sunday at the Canada Open 2013 tournament.


The altercation took place during the Men’s Doubles Final at the Canada Open 2013 badminton tournament in Vancouver, Canada, the Bangkok Post reports. Witnesses claim that Bodin Issara and Maneepong Jongjit, who once represented their native Thailand as partners at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, engaged in a fistfight after a heated argument.

Issara and Jongjit reportedly began to argue as their respective teams switched to the opposite side of the court during the match, the Bangkok Post reports. As the argument progressed, Issara dropped his badminton racket and chased Jongjit onto another court, tackling him to the ground and unleashing a series of punches and kicks on his former partner in front of a stunned Vancouver crowd. Coaches and stadium stuff rushed onto the scene to break up the brawl.

An apparently dazed Jongjit emerged from the fight shirtless, while an enraged Issara was pulled away by several coach and team officials.

Sometimes players who were on the same side would have a face off against each other. According to myeditingandwritingservices.com , it would create great curiosity among the public and they would be more interested to know who would turn out to be the winner. However, this event is very unfortunate because being professional and International players they should know how to behave in the court.

Both were at fault, but need to know what was said that started the fight...
One or the other should be suspended longer period...
2 months would be enough for me....
