Badminton has been, since the Barcelona Olympic Games (1992), an Olympic sport in five modalities: men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles and mixed doubles. In the latter, the couple is made up of a man and a woman. This sport is strongly dominated by Asian athletes: China, Indonesia and South Korea obtained 28 gold medals out of 29. Players must hit the wheel with their rackets so that it crosses the track over the net and falls into the sector opponent. The point ends
when the steering wheel touches the ground, after passing the net.
