They thought their dream of reaching the Paris Olympic Games had come true. However, the French badminton doubles pair Ronan Labar and Lucas Corvée were downgraded and saw their qualification for the Olympics in doubles disappear in favor of the Popov brothers. The reason: an error in accounting of points by the International Badminton Federation.

It’s a descent into hell for Lucas Corvée and his playing partner Ronan Labar. The two badistas thought they had qualified for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, but following a calculation error by the International Badminton Federation (BFW), the two athletes were demoted to second place in the “Race to Paris” ranking behind Toma Junior and Christo Popov. The two brothers take the lead in the French rankings with a 29-point lead. But then what happened?

The two Frenchmen were number 1 in the rankings since the defeat of the Popov brothers in the second round of the European Championships at the end of last week. But this Wednesday, April 17, an update of the ranking was made by the International Federation and points were withdrawn from Ronan Labar and Lucas Corvée.

An error in the accounting system

“This withdrawal of points would be linked to a calculation error dating back to May 2023 during the Sudirman Cup, the first competition counted for the Olympic ranking. The BWF would have awarded us – as well as many players – additional points because of “an error in their accounting system” explain the two badists in a letter sent to several media.

Since the former French numbers 1 have been incomprehensible: “All the tournaments of the Olympic year were played with this erroneous classification. The seeds, the lists of qualified players in each competition, the athletes’ strategy, were built on this error” they testify.

Both men are dismayed at how their “project of a lifetime” was thrown into the trash. “It’s a real earthquake, an explosion that we are experiencing. The dream of a life that appears then disappears without explanation” lament the two French people.

After this news, my French Badminton Federation (FFBad) contacted the International Federation for explanations. She should rule on this contentious case by Friday.
