VIVA – March is arguably one of the sacred months for world badminton players. The reason is, March is the month of the All England implementation.
Speaking of All England, Indonesia is one of the countries that regularly excels in the oldest badminton championship in the world. However, last year the Red and White team did not win a single medal because of the quarantine case in England that forced the Cipayung national training athletes to lose WO.
Now, PBSI is re-cultivating the hope of gaining achievements from All England. The doubles sector, both men’s and women’s, is the focus.
However, it is said that former Indonesian badminton player Luluk Hadiyanto, the women’s doubles sector that sent Greysia Polii/Apriyani Rahayu, had the greatest chance of winning a medal.
Not without reason. This is because a number of top badminton players in the women’s doubles sector, from Chen Qing Chen/Jia Yi Fan, Kim Soyeong/Kong Heeyong, and Nami Matsuyama/Chiharu Shida, have joined at the top.
Meanwhile, Greysia/Apriyani entered at the bottom. The only competitors who have the potential to make it difficult for the Indonesian representative are Yuki Fukushima/Sayaka Hirota and Lee Sohee/Shin Seungchan, on their way to the final.
