Bonuses for Indonesia’s Sudirman Cup Team Despite Loss By Jakarta Globe on 6:53 pm May 27, 2013 http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/sports/bonuses-for-sudirman-cup-team-despite-loss/ Excerpts: ...“The team’s struggle is amazing and we are proud of it. For that, we will give them a bonus,” Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) chairman Gita Wirjawan said on the organization’s website on Monday. ...Gita said the loss was a learning experience ahead of major upcoming tournaments including the World Championships (Guangzhou, Aug. 5-11) and the Southeast Asian Games (Myanmar, Dec. 11-22). “These two are our major targets this year,” Gita said. ...Sunday’s Sudirman Cup victory at the Putra Indoor Stadium was also the fifth straight final in the world mixed teams championships that China has won without dropping a match. But Chinese coach Li Yongbo insisted it had been a tough tournament, with Thailand showing progress by reaching its first ever semifinal. “I disagree with anyone who says we had it easy in this tournament. We had to fight all the way to win this title,” Li said.
