BWF profile

Wang Xiaoli (Chinese: 王晓理; born 24 June 1989) is a Chinese badminton player who is a doubles specialist. In 2012, she competed at the 2012 London Summer Olympics.[1]

Career[edit]

In 2005, she joined the Chinese national second team and officially became the first team in 2008.[2] Wang Xiaoli began her international career in 2009 when she paired with Tao Jiaming in mixed doubles and with Ma Jin in women's doubles. She quickly gained success with Ma Jin and culminated their career with a gold medal at the 2009 Asia Championships.[3] In the middle of the 2010 season Wang Xiaoli dropped mixed doubles from her repertoire of events and began competing in women's doubles with Yu Yang.[4] Despite their short time together, Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang have reached the number one ranking in the world for their event.[5] In 2011, she and Yu Yang received an award "BWF Female Player of the Year", who have become the first shuttlers to scoop a grand slam with their 5 BWF World Superseries Premier titles in 2011. Having only teamed up for slightly over a year, they have already picked-up the 2011 World title and were also champions at the 2011 Asian Championships. They also made 12 consecutive finals appearances with 7 BWF World Superseries titles to their name in 2011.[6]

At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Wang and her partner, Yu Yang, along with Jung Kyung-eun and Kim Ha-na, Ha Jung-eun and Kim Min-jung of South Korea, and Meiliana Jauhari and Greysia Polii of Indonesia, were disqualified from the competition for "not using one's best efforts to win a match" and "conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport", following matches the previous evening during which they were accused of throwing the match.[7][8] Yu Yang and Wang Xiaoli played against South Korea's Jung Kyung-eun and Kim Ha-na, and it has been suggested that both teams wanted to lose in order to secure an easier draw,[9] although Yu claimed "she and her partner were just trying to conserve their strength for the knockout rounds".[10]
