Overview

Viktor Axelsen is playing his first Olympics and is on the course of winning his first medal. He has made it to the semi-final of the Men's badminton event after defeating Rajiv Ouseph comfortably in straight sets.

The final scoreline was 21-12, 21-16, which went in the Danish star's favour. Axelsen will be targeting one more win and that will assure him at least a silver medal in the Rio 2016 Olympics. However, a defeat will see him face another battle for the bronze medal.

Long, on the other hand, had to overcome Son Wan-Ho in a three-set thriller. The Chinese badminton player finally managed to beat his South Korean counterpart with a scoreline of 21-18, 18-21, 21-11.
