MK / HS: The Badminton Mens Doubles Olympic Champions @ Beijing 2008
I was predicting JJS / LYD (KOR) to win the Mens Doubles Gold medals. But when JJS / LYD was defeated by LP / JR (DEN), and MK / HS defeated LP / JR 21/19, 21/17 in the Semi-Finals, I guessed that MK / HS could win the GOLD.
Congratulations to MK / HS for becoming the Badminton Mens Doubles Olympic Champions @ Beijing 2008 !!!

Congrats, MK/HS!!! I was so happy for them i was waiting for the INA national anthem to be played and the transmission got cut off! Is there any way to get compensation for incomplete programming?
INA MD's victory indicates that MK/HS will beat FU/CAI under clean conditions and lose under unsavoury conditions.Note this as a PAWing tip.
BTW, is INA going to send JR/LP a thank you note,for shooing off JJS/LYD?
And pls don't be greedy. Share the golds.LYD's gonna be so hungry for the XD gold INA won't have a chance.But INA can take the bronze.

Hallo Guys ,
beside the match between Markis/Hendra vs. Fu/Cai, the match between the indonesian girl and chinese girl surely an absolut thriller with the advantage for the indonesian at the end.
The play strategy of Maria reminds me to the great Susy Susanti. Surely Susy was faster and hast a more elegant style of playing, but the playing strategy from Maria seemed quite likely to Susys. The variation of high clears disturbed the footwork of Lu Lan, as Lu Lan could not take control game in the 2nd and 3rd game, Lu Lan seemed to dislike the slow tempo of Maria Kristin.
And of course, what for marvellous precision of shots from these 2 girls have, oh my oh my.. especially the high clear shots were really nice. We have also Chen Jin or Lee Hyun Il, for me, they played a perfect placing of badminton. How do they do that?
On the other side, it is likely "prooved", that the top players do train to produce net tumbling shots. The chinese and indonesian pairs did some very great examples at the final. Thus, this was actually indicated from the very beginning of this tournament. The players were hardly appologizing if the shots luckly tumbling to the opponent court. I think, this is also quite normal at this most prestiqious badminton event, since the nerves and the joy to point clearly overvalue, so that the players dont care the "social" relationship anymore on the court. We hear it often, "on the court we are enemys, of the court we can be friends".
Another nice thing, is that the general style of playing badminton differs from country to country, even between asian countries. We could see it from Markis/Hendra vs. Fu/Cai. Markis and Hendra have the better ability to produce unorthodox shots, which a human being on earth never thought of. On the other side, the hard smashes from Fu are just marvellous. I would really like to experience these kind of shots, I just cant imagine, how on earth I will be impressed in real.
From the match between Maria vs. Lu Lan, it is proved how complex a badminton game is. The perfect badminton from Lu Lan just could not overplay the mentally strong determined of a Maria Kristin. This is just impressive.
Well, I was kinda proud of all these players and of badminton, altough I am not Indonesian or Chinese, just so glad to be able to know how these top players feel on the court, mentally and physically.
So, guys, we can be proud of our favourite sport, badminton.
