Normal service should resume at the Olympic badminton tournament following the decisive conclusion of the women's doubles match-throwing scandal.
After almost 24 hours of farce and controversy starting on Tuesday evening, organisers are hopeful the matter has been put to rest as the competitions move into their latter stages.
Despite being thrown a last-minute lifeline, Australian players Renuga Veeran and Leanne Choo were knocked out of the competition for a second time on Wednesday night.
The pair was recalled to the quarterfinals after the mass disqualifications - making them the first Australians to progress that far since the 1992 Games.
However, they weren't able to capitalise on the opportunity, losing 21-9 18-21 21-18 to Canada's Alex Bruce and Michele Li.
Despite criticism in some quarters that it did not move quickly enough, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) acted firmly to disqualify the Chinese top seeds, two pairs from South Korea and another from Indonesia, finding they deliberately tried to lose.
All eight players conceded points on purpose in their final group matches in an attempt to manipulate the draw for the knockout stage.
"The regulations clearly state you have to win every match and you cannot throw some matches to win other matches," BWF secretary general Thomas Lund said.
South Korea failed in an appeal to have the decision overturned while Indonesia withdrew its challenge against the judgment.
China, whose top seeds Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang sparked the furore by trying to get into the opposite side of the draw to compatriots Tian Qing and Zhao Yunlei, accepted their punishment.
The affair has resulted in a blaze of negative publicity for the sport but Lund said while he was sorry it had happened, he was not embarrassed.
After also being recalled to the competition, Russia's Valeria Sorokina and Nina Vislova beat South Africa's Michelle Edwards and Annari Viljoen 21-9 21-7.
The Russians have now booked a semi-final against Tian and Zhao.
