Hopefully, Towi/Liliyana will deliver bronze today!
The worst scenario is badminton can't bag any medal if they lost to Danish pair

No medals for Indonesia... But still have faith for INA badminton and big hope for the juniors. It might be the end of an era but for the risen of the new ones

I'm pretty sure INA has a lot of potential talent. However, can PBSI really guide those talent to become real champions? In the past 4 years there is no real world class player coming from the national team. What make us think INA can produce champions in the next 4 years?
My question to forumers who knows better about national team and PBSI: are there any significant changes within PBSI recently? Can INA really rely on them to produce champions?

Nobody is scared of Indonesia now given their current results from London.
The people you all should blame are Setiawan/Kido for screwing your medal chances.
They could have qualified but they do not want to. They messed up Indonesia big time.

it's not their fault(INA players)...
it's the weather in England man... it's way too cold for what INA players are used to playing in...
even Taufik said in an interview "It's too early, it's like i'm still sleeping" against Lin Dan.. LOL !!

Indonesia Ought to Diversify Focus in Other Sports After Badminton Fallout
August 04, 2012 | by Pangeran Siahaan
That’s it. Indonesia’s dream of Olympic gold has been shattered. For the first time since the badminton was introduced in the Summer Games in 1992, Indonesian contingents will be going home without a gold bling to exhibit, following the defeat of mixed doubles pair Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir, and men's doubles pair Muhammad Ahsan and Bona Septano.
...The relentless fear of going home without a gold medal had been a menacing threat after our inaugural golds in Barcelona. “Keep the gold tradition” is the mantra that has been repeated every 4 years. In the past, our athletes might not perform convincingly in the build-up to the final match, but somehow we still got away with golds. Then we started to think that getting an Olympic gold is like a god-given right for Indonesia, like in every Olympic there’s a gold medal that has “Indonesia” engraved on it before the games even start. In a way, we took it for granted.
Badminton has been our forte, our playing ground where, not only we stand an actual chance to get a gold, Indonesian athletes are traditionally seen as one of the big boys. Unfortunately, that also means that our sporting scheme is undiversified. If we cocked up in badminton – something that had never happened before – then we would get a huge problem looking for the gold from elsewhere.
The thing is we’re hardly good enough in anything else. We took the world by fire in Dragon Boat, but it’s not an Olympic sport. Our basketball, volleyball and beach volleyball teams show promise but it’s still a long way to go until we can reach the Olympic standards. We’re clearly disadvantaged in aquatic sports and athletics where physical built and posture have a significant role. And don't let me started on our football team. It’s practically a joke, and an unfunny one.
...Badminton will still be a spine to our Olympic triumph in the future. After all, we’re still considered as giants (a sleeping one, if you may) in this discipline, but we should start building around other sports with potential success. Let’s start from weightlifting. Considering how much money we have spent on football without any outcome, it would be a travesty if we don't put similar effort on Olympic medal-winning sports.

Kido/Hendra are not to blame 100% yes, it was their fault for taking things too easily when they had to work hard to qualify but if our regeneration was as good as CHN's we wouldn't be missing the Olympic gold right now.

Let Djarum replaced PBSI to govern all INA's badminton and they'll do 10x better job. Sadly it'll never happened.
The current PBSI leadership need to be replaced. There's just no way around a failure such as this one (failing to medal at all).

Looking at the gloom hanging over Indonesian badminton’s current state, former Olympic gold medalist Candra Wijaya said the fall was foreseen a few years ago.
“When the Indonesian Badminton Association [PBSI] asked me to rejoin the national training camp back in 2007, the signal was very clear. We’re lacking regeneration,” he said. “We have lots of homework to do. It’s time to stick together and take action. We need to do what we have to do if we want to reclaim our status as the sport’s powerhouse.”
