    Congratulations to them! The way both of them played the past week, no other XD pair could've matched them. Winning all their matches convincingly in straight sets without much resistance from their opponents.

    Allocating 50 million USD for this edition's Olympic, INA government promised all medalists will receive their respective bonuses in 3 weeks. Butet/Owi's physical trainer will receive USD 25,000. Their nutritionist, medical assistant, physiotherapist and massage therapist will receive USD 20,000 each (which .is more than what a gold medalist would receive in some other countries:eek:).

    Dang, I should've applied as Butet/Owi's massage therapist! :D

    So who will be paired up with Tontowi? Gloria, Polli, Maheswari, or Dilli.

    Wow, that's a sizable sum of money. Butet is retiring so that is a nice reward.

    well deserved

    Yes indeed so.

    Only on two occasions one's national anthem will be played and national flag would be raised in foreign land, one is when the president is making a diplomatic visit and the other one is when the sport heroes win the Olympic gold medal.

    What makes it even better is Butet and Owi did this for us on our Independence Day. The Indonesian government and corporations are all now pouring in the gratitude and appreciations.

    What a year it has been for Tontowi Ahmad/Lilyana Natsir in 2016! After a barren year in terms of Super Series titles in 2015 (and only winning the Indonesia Masters and Badminton Asia Championships that year), the World Ranked no 2 pair (in next week's ranking) bounces back strongly this year and won:
    2 Super Series Premier titles in Malaysia and China; and another 1 Super Series title in Hong Kong.

    Of course, the crowning moment is in Rio where they won the coveted Gold Medal in the Olympics 2016 and restored INA's pride in badminton.
    They will still have to go to Dubai next month for the BWF Super Series Finals, where they traditionally don't do so well since they were paired together in 2011. I am not sure how they will perform there given that Liliyana Natsir is still injured and they only have barely 2 weeks to recover.

    A good showing in Dubai (i.e. reaching SF) will increase their chance of ending the year as World Ranked no 1 pair, a position they never reach as a pair too!

    With ZYL/ZN and CP/JFN gone, TA/LN can dominate and win the rest of the SS in 2016 before LN retiring for good next year.

    Ahmad will be partnered with Gloria soon according to head of PBSI, Susi Susanti... how wpuld they fare initially? Gloria is not comfortable in front and can't defend very well.

    Can Ahmad guide his partner?

    Lilyana is like a rock in the partnership. I am not sure Ahmad will be able to cope in amy new partnership

    IDK, I mean Owi used to get bossed around by Butet. Now you're asking him to 'membimbing' Gloria, its hard to change the habit from being told to taking the initiatives.
    But at least Glo can smash properly unlike Butet :/
    We will be seeing their actions at Malaysia Master this month.

    Yeah, I also think that Lilyana is a great player and Gloria seems to play in a different style from her, and it's interesting to see how Tontowi - Gloria will cope their own team play.
