After a battling victory yesterday, GB's Kirsten Allen is out of the Women's Singles in the badminton after losing to Seonhwa Jeong of Korea in two sets (21-12, 21-3).

Allen had made it through to the last 16 yesterday with a battling 2-1 victory over the Indian player Gauravi Wamburkar, coming back from a set down to win 20-22, 21-17 & 21-15. However, she was no match for her Korean opponent today.

There was further disappointment for Allen when, in her doubles match straight after her defeat, she and her partner Lesley Holdsworth lost 17-21, 15-21 to a doubles team from Japan.

There is still hope for the GB badminton team, due to yesterday's win in the doubles for Alexander Hurley and Dominic Caswell, who had to fight over three sets to reach the quarter finals.

But there were emotional scenes yesterday when legendary Deaflympian Rajeev Bagga and his doubles partner, team captain Michael Burris, bowed out of the Deaflympics for good after losing their doubles match in three sets.

After the pair lost the match, Bagga announced his retirement from Badminton to a very emotional audience, who responded by applauding him. Burris had announced his retirement ahead of the games.
