Indonesia's Sigit Shows His Faith in ’08 Olympic Doubles Champions
Ami Afriatni | December 14, 2010
Jakarta. After 12 years at the national training camp in Cipayung, East Jakarta, coach Sigit Pamungkas has explained why he felt the need to leave.
Sigit announced last week that he was leaving the camp in order to focus on preparing Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan for the 2012 London Olympics.
He said on Tuesday that he made the decision because he believed in the capacity of the top men’s doubles duo to reprise their Olympic gold-winning performance in 2008, despite their recent poor form.
“I think they are still Indonesia’s best chance of winning gold at the London Olympics because I don’t think we will have any younger pairs ready in time to take on the responsibility,” said the 48-year-old Sigit, who started his coaching career as an assistant to Christian Hadinata, the national team head coach, in 1998.
Markis and Hendra have been playing together since 2004.
Sigit has been their mentor since 2005, helping them to win at the world championships in 2007 and the Beijing Olympics two years ago.
Currently ranked No. 4 in the world, Markis and Hendra withdrew from the national training camp in January to return to their club, Jaya Raya.
Sigit decided to quit the camp to train the pair.
“The discussions with them began in Kuala Lumpur when we played in the Thomas Cup in May,” Sigit said.
“We reached a deal after the Asian Games, so I’ll start training them again at Jaya Raya in January next year.”
However, Sigit promised the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) that he would try to help out at the camp on his days off.
“I will try my best to visit them at least three times a week,” the coach said.
Markis welcomed Sigit’s decision, saying: “We’re surprised, but I know he can help us to get back on top again.”
Despite winning the 2010 Asian Games gold medal in Guangzhou in November, the pair has been struggling on the court for most of the season.
They are currently facing a winless Super Series campaign for the first time in their careers.
Their last hope for a title is the season-ending Super Series Finals in Taiwan in January.
Thats diplomatic answer from Kido
They know that Sigit will coach them
Is it true that Hendra is playing in Japanese league now? what team is he in now?
It has been reported that they will also play in the Chinese Super League, for the WuHan team.
yes,kido and setiawan will play for Hubei team.
They are now in China and getting ready to play their first match in the Chinese Super League today.
Playing for Tonami, replacing Candra Wijaya, for China, they will play several matches for Wu han...
I read that they will play 4 matches for Hubei and are paid at least RMB 480k (120k per match).
2 matches finished and 2 wins. Not bad for them to repay the faith of the Hubei Team.
for the one who cant read indonesian language,just use google translator.
Hi.... I'm a newbie in here...
So sad.... They failed again in BAC...:'(
