If someone thought Osleni Guerrero´s victory over the Austrian David Obernosterer in the group stage of the badminton Grand Prix Rio was a fluke, the Cuban repeated the dose on Thursday against the same opponent and was included among the top eight the contest.
If that duel was extended to three sets, in this Osleni won in only two (21-13 and 21-17) and he will be the sole representative of America in the rest of the competition.
Today, the Havana man’s adversary of will be the Chinese Guo Kai, who is well behind him in the world rankings, but comes from a country with a long tradition in this sport. According to updating of the world rankings yesterday, Osleni is now ranked 60 and his rival 113.
Also through to the next round are Chinese Lin Dan and Spaniard Pablo Abian, the top two seeds in the tournament.
