Tony and Chandra as wild card
If IBF know how to market the sports of Badminton then Chandra/Tony should be invited as wild card in coming World championship.

If somebody here in BC know anyone sitting & working in IBF, can ask & consider about this Wild Card during meeting.

Actually Candra and Tony are of Chinese descent. Just like Hendrawan and Alan Budikusuma or Halim Haryanto. It is true that Chinese (mainland and overseas or descendants) seem to dominate the badminton world. Indonesia's Great, Rudi Hartono and Liem Swee King are Chinese descent.

You're asking questions that are verging on political history and politics of Indonesia. The country adopted a national policy in the past to have every citizen regardless of ethnicity to adopt an Indonesian name. Search the forum for more treads on Candra Wijaya. You'll come up with many useful references.
