Congratulations to Japan and all the winners - excellent play!

Awesome! I want to see Badminton at the 2020 games. I tried to get tickets for the 2008 games in Beijing but tickets were impossible to get mainly because it was one of China's powerhouse sports.

All Japanese mothers play badminton or volleyball. Hope Japan can be volleyball champion too.

They did a pretty good job, just don't think they shocked the world...

Yah I don't think they shocked the world. Most people outside of Asia probably don't know the games are on. But great job!

Well done.

It's not a shock to the world as the Asian Games don't get a massive amount of coverage outside of Asia but shouldn't let that detract from the team's success.
