Indonesia in Beijing

Finally, the Indonesian national flag was raised in Beijing through Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan, after their huge effort of defeating Cai Yun and Fu Haifeng of China in the Badminton Men's Double final on August 16. I watched their match when i was having dinner with my girlfriend.

Coming as the no. 1 rank in the world, their effort to grab a gold medal wasn't easy. But in the end, they still hold the tradition of goal medal from badminton. No wonder the official Olympic website said they are THE BEST IN THE WORLD. Too bad the Men's single were unable to retain their tradition on this year's Olympic game. Let's hope another medal will be given by the mixed double which will play today.

This medal is also a wonderful present for Indonesian Independence day which is TODAY!!!
