IOC spokesman Mark Adams says the organization is waiting to see what the Badminton World Federation decides in a disciplinary hearing before getting involved in accusations that eight badminton players threw matches at the Olympics to secure a favorable draw.

"The federation is taking very swift action and we expect them to take the correct course," Adams says. "We have our full confidence in them."

Adams says the IOC thinks they are "a long, long, long way away" from saying the sport's status in the games needs to be examined.

"I think it's really premature while a disciplinary committee is still sitting to try to decide whether they have taken the right or wrong decision when they haven't actually taken the decision yet," he says.

Adams anticipates hearing a decision from the federation early Wednesday afternoon.
