Fifth-seeded Lin of China - winner of Olympic gold in Beijing last year - beat Dicky Palyama 21-11, 21-11 to end the run of the Dutchman who caused a first-round upset by beating China's Bao Chunlai.

In other matches early in Thursday's play, South Korea's top-seeded mixed doubles pairing Lee Yong-dae and Lee Hyo-jung, who also won gold in Beijing, reached the quarters with a 21-11, 21-17 victory over China's Xu Chen and Zhao Yunlei.
