Susi Susanti, The Queen of Badminton From Indonesia
Susi Susanti is the world legend of Badminton from Indonesia. She is really the queen of badminton. When I was a kid, in 1990, I really love to watch badminton live broadcast on television. I like two players from Indonesia: Susi Susanti and Alan Budi Kusuma. They were great badminton players.
Susi Susanti is a legend queen of badminton, she won gold medal of Olympic in 1992 in Barcelona. It was the first ever gold medal of Olympic Game for Indonesia. It was on August 1992, Susi won over South Korea player, Bang Soo-hyun. Fortunately, Bang Soo-hyun won gold medal of Olympic Game 1996 in Atlanta after beating another Indonesian player, Mia Audina.
She won All England four time which are in 1990, 1991, 1993, 1994, and she also won World Champion in 1993. What a great talented women badminton player. I think, the player like Susi Susansi only born one in 100 years. She is like Leonel Messi in Barcelona, we may call Susi Susanti as “alien” as well.
Susi was an hero for Indonesia. We really love to support and pray for her to win every single game she played. Susi Susanti won bronze medal of Olympic Game 1996 in Atlanta, United States. She’s also won many more medals and champions during her career as a player. And finally she retired at 26 years old. She has won everything.
Olympic Game Barcelona 1992
It was really a great historical moment of Badminton for Indonesia. Susi Susanti won gold medal for the first time for Indonesia in Olympic Game. And you know what?
It’s really like in the movie, after Susi Susanti won gold medal for single women player, then her boyfriend, Alan Budi Kusuma also won gold medal for single men player.
So, it was an unforgettable moment for Susi and Alan, for Indonesia, and for me too. I watched the live broadcast when Susi Susanti beaten Korean player, Bang Soo-hyun. I was so happy.
Susi Susanti and Alan Budi Kusuma got married in 1996. What a happy ending!
