VIVA – A number of world badminton tournaments are waiting for PBSI national athletes after competing in the Asian Team Badminton Championships or the 2022 Badminton Asia Team Championship. Some of them are the German Open and the All England 2022.
Both will run consecutively from March 8-20 2022. The German Open 2022 will be the first test for Indonesian badminton players after a long holiday since the end of last year.
However, it seems that PBSI did not immediately send all its top athletes to appear in the two tournaments. There are several names that are not included even though they are considered potential to win medals.
Previously, PBSI had released 20 representatives for the German Open and 22 representatives for the All England. Later, they withdrew 11 representatives from the two championships.
Some of those who are confirmed to be absent from the German Open are Chico Aura Dwi Wardoyo, Gregoria Mariska Tunjung, Leo Rolly Carnando/Daniel Marthin, and Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan.
Chico is also not included in the All England this time. Together with a number of young badminton players such as Putri Kusuma Wardani, Febriana Dwi Puji Kusuma/Amalia Cahaya Pratiwi, and Nita Violina Marwah/Putri Syaikah.
