Olimpic Games 2008: First Gold Medal for Indonesia
Posted by triaslama on August 16, 2008
I would like to say congratulations for Indonesia Badminton double men’s pair, Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan for their achievement in Beijing 2008 Olimpic Games. Because of them our nation get the first gold medal in Beijing 2008 Olimpic Games.
In final match, Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan beats China double men’s pair Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng in three sets 12-21, 21-11, 21-16. Lose in first set Kido/Setiawan revived in the next two sets and won the final match against Cai/Fu.
This victory is special, because a day later -August 17, 2008- is the independence day of Indonesia. So I think Kido and Setiawan has gift our nation special reward (first gold medal for Indonesia team in Olimpic 2008). Although now I am rarely play badminton (or maybe just ‘never play Badminton again’) but I am still Badminton fans, especially for Indonesia team.
I hope this is not the only one gold medal for Indonesia in this Olimpic Games. Once again, congratulations for Kido/Setiawan and keep fighting guys!
