Badminton made its launching as a presentation sport at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. It was not up until the 1992 Games in Barcelona that it was formally consisted of on the Olympic program, with men's and ladies's singles and doubles occasions. The mixed doubles occasion made its debut in 1996 at the Atlanta Olympic Games. Since then, the number of events has actually stayed the same.
Although the production of contemporary badminton is credited to England, it is Asia that now controls this sport. In between 1992 and 2008, Asian nations won 69 of the 76 medals readily available in Olympic competition! The dominant countries are China, Indonesia and the Republic of Korea, followed by Great Britain and Denmark.
