pls post in english, bcoz ppl from all over the world are reading this forum....
I think this is the second time INA had a clean sweep in badminton for SeaGames held outside the country. Their clean sweeps before were Manila 1981, Jkt 1987, Jkt 1997..
Congrats for INA, inspite of only reaching no.4 in the overall gold medal count. Laos 09 would be a more fair place to see who is the best among the big 5 (THA, INA, MAS, VIE, PHI), since there is no host-advantage anymore and only less than 30 games will be contested (more aline with olympic games).
It was widely expected INA to sweep all GOLDs (except the XD). I think for the game of the development of badminton, the SEA Games should only allow badminton players U-23. Give more rooms for the juniors to gain International exposure. Afterall, we've seen enough of the Taufik, LCW, Sony, etc... in SS, so give the youngsters a chance to shine
so the final results are as follow.....
MS- Taufik Hidayat bt Kendrick Lee 21-15, 21-9
WS- Maria Kristin Yulianti bt Adriyanti Firdasari 21-16, 21-15
MD- Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan bt Wijaya/Saputra 21-17, 21-12
WD- Vita Marissa/Lilyana Natsir bt Gresyia Polli/Jo Novita 21-15, 21-14
XD- Flandi Limpele/Vita Marissa bt Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam 21-14, 21-15
