ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Chinese trolls infuriated by loss to Taiwan” – below is their description.
Taiwan has taken the opportunity of winning Olympic badminton gold to subtly assert their nationhood, as Chinese nationalists vent their fury online.
Chinese Taipei’s Lee Yang and Wang Chi-lin beat Liu Yuchen and Li Junhui of China in the men’s doubles badminton gold medal match on Saturday.
It was Chinese Taipei’s first ever gold medal in badminton, one of the sports China is most dominant in.
China’s state media reportedly cut off the broadcasting of the medal ceremony to avoid Taiwan’s “National Flag Anthem”, which has the same melody as the Taiwanese national anthem but different lyrics.ABC News (Australia) YouTube Channel
