Maria Kristin is Indonesia's 2008 Olympic real hero!!!
not MKido/HSetiawan i love them for winning us a gold medal. but they are expected too, they're ranked #1, seeded #1.
but Maria play well above expectation. winning bronze??? that's crazy, but not as crazy as beating Lu Lan, even dominating the second & third sets. proving that she's an adept tactical player. her tactic was not to give lob shots and press toward the body or Lu's left/backhand side.
hopefully with more physical training and international exposure, she can achieve more. (but i still fancy Firdasari over her actually

Yup, maria kristin is a hero! Nobody expect her to get medal in OG, but she did it. She never give up in every match, even though her opposite have a high rank than her in BWF rank..
Thats a good lesson to other INA shuttlers, they must have a great attitude like Maria Kristin

Bonus 150 juta Buat Maria Kristin lokasi: Home / Berita / Surat Pembaca / [sumber: Jakartapress.com]
Kudus - Cuaca panas berawan menyelimuti GOR bulutangkis Djarum, Jati, Kudus. Sebuah mobil Kijang Inova yang membawa Maria Kristin masuk di pelataran GOR termegah di Asia Tenggara itu. Kedatangan peraih medali perunggu bulutangkis tunggal puteri Olypiade Beijing 2008 itu, disambut kalungan bunga dan lagu mars atlet. Tak mau ketinggalan puluhan pebulutangkis junior binaan PB Djarum ikut menyambut pahlawan bulutangkis.
Sambutan yang meriah ini cukup mengejutkan Maria Kristin yang kedatangannya ke Kudus hanya untuk berlibur di tempat ia pernah digembleng di PB Djarum. "Saya sama sekali tidak menyangka mendapat sambutan seperti ini. Sebab, niat saya ke sini hanya untuk berlibur mengunjungi adik-adik", ujar Maria Kristin.
Kegembiraan Maria semakin bertambah karena Maria juga mendapat bonus sebesar Rp 150 juta dari PB Djarum, atas prestasinya menyumbangkan medali perunggu di arena bergengsi Olympiade. Apalagi prestasi Maria meraih medali perunggu sebenarnya diluar target. "Saya sendiri tak menyangka Maria bisa maju dengan pesat. Dulu Maria ini terkenal dengan si lamban. Pergerakan kakinya lamban, hingga pukulannya banyak yang mudah diantisipasi lawan," ungkap FX Supanji, Ketua Persatuan Olah Raga (POR) Djarum.
Sebelum berhasil meraih medali perunggu, lawan- lawannya yang merupakan pemain unggulan dengan peringkat diatasnya berhasil ia tumbangkan. diantaranya adalah Julianne Schenk dari Jerman peringkat ke-13, Tine Rasmussen asal Denmark peringkat ke-4, dan Saina Nehwal asal India peringkat-15. Akhirnya akhirnya kalah dari Zhang Nin di semifinal. Maria meraih medali perunggu setelah mengalahkan Lu Lan.
Key news points [in English]:
Maria Kristin receives 150 million Rupiah from her club, PB. Djarum. Maria was on a one day vacation to visit her younger clubmates and former coaches [from when she was trained in Kudus, as a young child]. She was greeted as a badminton hero by all the current trainees with a parade of rackets, flowers, and chants of the PB. Djarum badminton-mars-song. "I didn't expect to be greeted like this. Actually, my intention in coming here is just to spend holiday and to meet my fellow younger clubmates."
From other newspaper articles I read in Indonesia, they said Maria cried a lot that day because she felt very honored by the welcome-reception in Kudus. She said that in 2008 she improved her big weakness in the past: her footwork. With stronger and faster legs, all her other gamesmanship became more lethal and effective.

As for those who didn't get any medals... well, INA have long rejected the Communist ideals [of giving loosers rewards]...
Thus, we should keep embracing the idea that rewards are for the high-performers. Bigger rewards are for the very-high-performers... The so-so participants, [however hard they've tried] should not be financially rewarded. Rewarding non-performers is not a good practice. They should just get pep-talks on how to do better in the future.
That's life. And that's the way it should be.
